    He is literally the worst person that I or anyone else have ever worked for. He is a self serving sycophant who would do anything to make himself look good in front of others at the expense of his subordinates. I'll send more personal stories in a PM if people want. P.S. his WPS callsign is LIMBO because they couldn't set the bar any lower.

    Regarding bolded above... North DFAC at KAF has better than “decent food.” I’ll wager it’s the best chow hall in any AOR. They have 6 kinds of espresso. They have a dude who walks around handing out samples of grilled meat. They have a RipIt slurpy machine with 4 flavors. Don’t undersell it man! I’m not someone who likes KAF, but it’s a damn fine chow hall.

    iPhone with the selfie stick will undoubtedly give you the most style points. If you're feeling ballsy, you can do the selfie style with an iPad and that could land you even more style points, given the execution is good. If you are able to pull it off, hold a laptop with a camera selfie style. This will be the hardest to pull off but if you do it correctly and well, you are almost guaranteed an interview.

    MOODY AIR FORCE BASE, Ga. -- Col. Daniel P. Walls, 23d Wing commander, relieved Lt. Col. Scott Rein from command of the 41st Rescue Squadron, Sept. 23, 2019, at Moody Air Force Base, Ga. After careful consideration, the decision to relieve the commander was made based on a loss of confidence in his ability to lead and command. Lt. Col. Chad Kohout is currently serving as interim commander of the unit. About time

    Not a movie, but an HBO series. Watched a couple of episodes of Chernobyl on my flight back from Germany. Wished I had started watching it earlier (Delta movies suck!). Gonna pay for it via Amazon, as it's well worth it!

    You absolutely should, and don't forget to post a link here for us to watch and give feedback 😉 In all seriousness, I highly recommend it because it's a chance for the hiring board to put a face and personality to an application.

    You’re damn right they should be “reinstated”. They are innocent until proven guilty. That’s how it works around here. A “technicality” may be blind ass luck or a poorly trained officer or whatever, but if the proof of guilt doesn’t meet the standard of law...that person is innocent. Period. “For the law holds, that it is better that ten guilty persons escape, than that one innocent suffer.”

    100% until proven guilty. Whether the circumstances warrant administrative action is another story... but writing that story before the legal case settles is unfortunate. I’m not sure why we’re so spring loaded to fire/punish before the legal case is settled. If “we’re going to get all the facts out in trial/through due process” is not an acceptable answer to you or your boss, maybe you or your boss should spend a while thinking about your commitment to the constitution. There also may be times when relieving somebody of duties is in their best interest in order to focus on the legal battle, but a press release probably isn’t necessary in that case That said: There aren’t many more selfish decisions than drinking and driving.

    Once Upon A Time in Hollywood. Loooooong movie. Really liked Brad Pitt's character and performance. No skin from Margot Robbie (which is a pity...) Interesting handling of the Manson murders. Unfortunate that Lena Dunham was in it (my keyboard threw up a little typing that...) Vintage Tarantino.
