Contactless FTU Pickup - ON HOLD

Please note that we are currently not permitted to distribute uniforms, even via curbside pickup.

If it has been over 6 months since you submitted your measurements and you are still awaiting a uniform, please fill out the form again if you believe your measurements have changed. There are significant delays due to COVID restrictions and shipping issues.

The priority for the time being is issuing and exchanging FTU components. These can be collected via contactless curbside pickup beginning in November: If your uniform is ready for pickup, sign up for a specific time slot here, and then arrive at 8 Clements Ave (“The Trailer”) at your designated time, open your trunk, and the item will be placed inside by the staff member (please stay in your vehicle).

  • New Cadets requiring an entire uniform, fill out this form.
  • Current Cadets requesting an item exchange, fill out this form.
  • A list of name tags that are ready to be picked up can be found here.
  • Name tag request form (check above list first)

* Dropbox will be available for paperwork submission if you are booking a timeslot for supply.
