I’ve worn literally every flavor of flight suit from the original Army two piece of early Iraq, high speed Crye two-pieces, and even an orange one piece that was a ‘SAR helo’ suit.
I’ve recently gone back to wearing the one piece bag because nothing is as comfortable as a properly broken in one piece bag.
And it’s really not that hard to take off a one piece to take a dump, and I’m a pretty big dude.
You would be surprised how much people in the military don't know. When I left my 11R platform filing VFR was like a Pandora's box of mystery to them. They thought it was this way out there wierd thing that needed special preparation and planning. VFR. You know, what every GA pilot does until they get instrument qual'd. The military had it's strengths but each community has their weaknesses as well. At the end of the day the aviation sector is huge and people will specialize in their organizations niche. Hanging out at an FBO and talking to some old timers is a great way to realize how much you haven't seen, even with an Air Force background.
Was this an SDE ADSC? Were you tasked to deploy before applying for retirement? Did your CC support? Any details would be helpful, please share the long story if possible. I am currently a SQ/CC, I should change out summer 2020 and would deny any assignment as I would not have the needed retainability. I would end up just hanging around the base for six months or so with out a real job.
