  1. Today
  2. oh shit, you can do that? I thought you had to live in the house to get a VA?
  3. Hey guys, so I’ve been keeping up to date on all my Air Guard news while sipping this delicious blue kool-aid they have in the waiting area at the medical clinic and I came across an article that said the AF had completed their re-winging project on the A-10. obviously, the money got sent to AD units first and I was wondering if Idaho got a piece of the pie? New wings would mean they're back in business and not being selected for the F35 is a none-issue. Will anyone in the squadron care to comment? I was curious how things we're going up there, I saw some locals through a fit about the noise. And some other news says another (albeit small) BRAC is coming in 2021 and was just wondering what the future will hold for those guys. I'm a herk guy myself, so I don't have any skin in the game, but I got two buddies in the hog and we were talking about it. Thanks
  4. Yes. Get them in the system and talk to Finance ASAP. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app

  6. Duck It’s not optimal obviously but i think it can be done. Talk to your finance next week. IIRC you can do it to a point. I remember chasing down guys for sigs (we used to have to sign them multiple times) well into October. As long as they “load” them up for you into AROWS it should be alright, but verify with Finance and your DO just to make sure.
  7. Quick question about backlogging AFTPs in last Fiscal Year. I’m having some issues with HARM jacking up my records and long story short I will probably need to file AFTPs for August-September but after 1 October. Is there any issue with this that any of y’all know about since it would be FY20, but I’m filing stuff for FY19? Thanks! Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  8. Thank you, Sir! It was definitely a pleasure to work with you! Helping good people save a ton of money is the best part of this job. I have 4 kiddos so your Dad compliment definitely means a lot. Enjoy the upcoming wedding and please let me know if you need anything in the future. Have a great weekend! Jon
  9. Just depends...you have to go down by .5% at a min to do an IRRRL. If it's a cheap refi state we've done 3.25% no cost IRRRLs so you don't have a break even and you just save money. If it's a more expensive state or you're paying the cost then I'd run a break even analysis off the costs and saving then compare it to how long you're planning on staying in the house to see if it makes sense. If you're PCSing or selling in the not too distant future typically only the no cost IRRRLs make sense. Best thing is just to do an app on our website or call me so I can run the numbers and see if it makes sense. If we have an app in and I have talked to you then I can also hold it and watch the market for you then auto lock when we hit the right numbers. You're never committed to anything on a refi until 3 days after you close so there isn't any downside by locking or exploring your options. If rates drop then we just cancel the first lock and set you up with a new lock so the first lock is just a hedge. Jon 850-377-1114 jk@mythl.com
  10. Another day, another heap of praise for Jon, Bri, and the rest of the team at Trident. Slightly unsual situation for me -- looking to refi a first and second mortgage consolidated into a single jumbo loan under the VA. House purchased in 2007 and FINALLY to the point where the house value was worth more than the outstanding notes. Jon fully understood my situation, and gave me mutliple options to consider, and got me a fantastic rate for a jumbo within days of the initial discussuion. I looked into the situation with several other lenders, and none came close to the rate Jon got me or the way he treated me -- most were half a percent higher or more, were barely familiar with the VA process, and treated you as if you were wasting their time. Not Jon! ALWAYS available to take a call or get back to me quickly when I had a question. Even called me a few weeks before the original Closing date to see if I could support SPEEDING UP the closing to an earlier date because he was concerned that some new rules for VA loans starting next month may affect my situation. I always felt he was looking at for me the way a squadron bro would. Bri and the rest of his team were on the spot and 4 steps ahead of the game on getting everything ready for Closing. The result? Closed on a refi within 30 days of when I originally contacted Jon, with a new consolidated jumbo loan that is saving me $1100 / month (yep, over $13K / year!) Couldn't be happier with the whole process I experienced using Jon and his team at Trident. Do yourself due diligence, and if looking for a lender check out at least a few places. But do yourself a favor as well and make sure Jon and Trident are one of those places. Pretty sure he'll beat any and all others you look into on price, service, and all around experience. And I'll give him the ultimate compliment -- when / if my own kids look into purchasing a home (they're all in the 20s, so it will be soon) I'll simply hand them Jon's phone number, because a Dad always look out for his kids....
  11. Exactly. This will just make it more painful for those who maintain physical standards in the squadron. That’s being said, If you are an able bodied 20-30 year old, you have zero excuse for failing the test. Most airmen in my squadron that fail just don’t care.
  12. Generally speaking, the AF does not take testing done by civilians. Not 100% of the time, but if the AF has the capability and expertise to perform an evaluation themselves, they will. I've personally seen many cases where a civilian doc will write a glowing report to support a patient who is paying them, despite the findings not supporting their diagnosis.
  13. I don't know if I'd go that far. But, I certainly try to offer the best information I can.
  14. Nope, but I did just get my separation date approved to depart the AD exactly at 17 years from commissioning. After what I’ve seen from AF “leadership”and personnel management, I couldn’t be more sure of this decision. No retirement, but I’m hoping the AFRC and airlines will appreciate whatever I have to offer them. No bonus is worth the abuse the USAF is dishing out these days. Dear USAF: Now you can say my morale is pretty darn good.
  15. stuckindayton is our lord and savior of all things Air Force flight medical here at Baseops, if he says it it is scripture.
  16. You only work 10/day? Sent from my iPad using Baseops Network mobile app
  17. Do you know this as fact? Will a MCT within the past 12 months suffice? Thanks.
  18. When he was the AFCENT commander, he was still CMR in the Raptor and flying combat sorties. Kinda badass IMHO.
  19. Yesterday
  20. Better idea, fire AAFES all together, they are worthless at most bases.
  21. Only time I've had to do formal reporting-in in the Army is at the school house. Other than that, the Guard is pretty chill. I've read many different comments on threads on here that currently enlisted guys need to report-in. Glad to hear that probably wont be the case.
  22. Had 3 interviews and I asked the same question in all before each one. For all three I just had to knock an come in. Maybe the heavy guys I was interviewing w were somewhat relaxed. No one told me to come in, salute and say reporting as order sir/ma’am... is it just an army thing? Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  23. Questions for current mil guys. What is the reporting in process for an Air Force interview and will they let you know beforehand if its required? They require service dress for the interview. I'm an Army Officer and want to do it the correct way to AF standard if thats expected. Thanks
  24. Awesome progress!! Saw in your intro that you're a Medic as well, nice to see another one on here. Happy hunting!
