    “Red is the new Green”

    There’s usually a huge SCIF on base where all tanker crews do all their high side things instead of having individual vaults in the squadrons.

    Meh. I know where I, and about 75% of the other dudes in my guard squadron, finished in our UPT classes.

    There are tanker squadrons out there that don’t have a classified space in the building.

    What is this "vault" you speak of? Tanker clowns spend time in the vault, but it's not about learning how to stay out of a WEZ.

    A little late, but if your degree is in engineering as your username implies, you should be able to make the argument that your 2.5 is easily an underwater basketweaving 3. And I say that as an underwater basketweaving major.

    Promotion and PRF Information

    Can you give up a rank? Like you are a LtCol active duty and want to be a major in the guard or reserves? Anything like un-promotion voluntarily?
  12. Per law (DOPMA), you are correct, last I checked.

    The U.K.-headquartered firm will lead “Team Tempest,” which also includes engine-maker Rolls-Royce, Italian defense contractor Leonardo, and the European missile consortium MBDA..... Because we learned F@ck-all from Tornado, Typhoon, Eurocopter Tiger.... Jesus guys. You were the only country with a legitimate chance at getting Raptor and that got jacked up for Typhoon... now they want to repeat history when we will sell literally anybody not Russia/China F-35s to get the per unit cost down and even let them build their own.

    I just wanted to pass along my positive experience dealing with Trident. Marty and Elena did a fantastic job setting up our mortgage and taking care of us during the purchase of our Alexandria, VA home. Even though Elena had to deal with an unprofessional seller’s agent she handled him like a pro. never releasing details that could have affected our negotiating stance. Trident was truly part of the team and in our case crucial to making our home purchase happen. The best part of working with Trident was that it felt like they were only working on my loan, they were just on it. Thanks

    B-1 Landing at Midland

    Listen, man, sometimes Army cooks have it tough.

    B-1 Landing at Midland

    Why did I go look at the comments there...That really pissed me off. I love the Army cooks pitching in saying that all these guys did was land a plane and they mock the Air Force for stuff like this. Those people are an embarrassment to the American military if they can’t figure out how heroic this act was.

    “Red is the new Green”

    Down range is the best place to get into the books, in my opinion. You fly and workout. That leaves tons of time to get in the books. Maybe that’s just my community but our guys are way sharper and ready to upgrade at the end of deployments. I don’t say that derisively, simply my communities technique that seems to work. Personal note: I’m the son of a tanker pilot and love the entire tanker enterprise. I’m not the only one. Talk to a Thud or Phantom driver that went downtown in Route Pack VI and had his bacon saved by some warrior minded tanker crews. The tanker dudes won’t be able to buy a drink all night.

    B-1 Landing at Midland

    If you want brain cancer, browse through 7BW PA’s FB reposting of this story. The mouth breathers were out in force in the comments section poopooing the AF for awarding the DFC to this crew. IMHO....well deserved for handling a dicey situation!

    “Red is the new Green”

    Sounds like a conversation that needs to happen in the squadron. Building combat capability is the primary purpose of any AF squadron. We can blame competing requirements all day long, but until your commanders take personal risk in order to prioritize what matters, we’ll continue to perpetuate these tactical myths and forget that there’s an enemy preparing to take us out. By the way—no snark intended. It’s a legit question. Though I’d love to see a commander fired for saying no to the queep and getting his crews into the vault. Also, there’s ample opportunity for crews to study downrange. That’s simply a matter of coordination.

    “Red is the new Green”

    When are these guys supposed to get in the books for this? On their 1 week of R&R after their 2nd deployment to the Deid this year?
