  1. North Korea at it again

    Ready to tie pme to this? One of my silly awc papers was on North Korea and my "feedback" was something to the effect of "you didn't propose anything that hasn't already been discussed." No kidding.....his has been an issue for almost 70 years. So now-for the rest of my life-when I read about North Korea it just makes me pissed off at pme.
  2. I'm nearly certain YAS is years aviation service which starts the day you are entitled to flight pay. Ie first day of upt
  3. VLPAD

    Very interesting. That's awesome. And way to say no to hmn.
  4. Leaving the Air Force for the Airlines

    Fwiw, its las cruces. And having lived near there and near mojave-I'd suggest Mojave (but live in Tehachapi) if given the choice. Both are middle of nowhere but at least you can get places from mojave.
  5. VLPAD

    As I mentioned earlier in this thread I applied and was accepted and then denied release by afrc. (11f). I know of at least one other that was denied. I'd also like to hear from folks who VLPADed. (Now it's a verb!)
  6. What's wrong with the Air Force?

    "Also, if we think we have it bad because of ###, we need to go to see those in Walter Reed and reconsider if we really have it that bad." They didn't really say that, did they? Tell me they didn't say that.
  7. It's simply a matter of not enough qualified people for the available positions. Most agr positions have very specific requirements listed as mandatory. There are also "desired" qualifications as well.
  8. Welcome to trying to fill agr positions in 2017.
  9. Ackc-congrats dude. That is awesome. We had a former infrantry officer in one of my f-16 ANG units (he had sf and ranger tabs too) and it was cool.
  10. Lost Another - Pilot OK

    There are two reasons: 1-much less risk of g lock 2-much less risk of spacial d due to way less night flying.
  11. FY16 "Bonus Shenanigans"

    You used logic and called me old all in one post. Bravo good sir. (Still would like some free money since I'm one of about six dudes left from my year group)
  12. FY16 "Bonus Shenanigans"

    Speaking of bonus shenanigans, I'm going to keep asking why Afrc has a 16 years tafms restriction but the ANG doesn't until someone can provide me an answer.
  13. I have a question: Why is there a tafms restriction for Afrc but not for the ANG? Id ask Afrc myself but they didn't put a single way to contact anyone on the message.
  14. I honestly think some of this has to do with the age of the people making these decisions. It is very difficult for people to place inflation into real context. I've had the following conversation with my dad: "Sierra Nevada is $14 a 12 pack?! That's so expensive!" "uh dad. Do the math on what beer cost 20 years ago" thinks...... "you're right. Bargain "
  15. It is also apparent that the following announcement would hold more people than the bonus: "No more 365's. Period. For anyone."
  16. Not to be pedantic, but it really does matter: you would pocket $75,000 at the absolute top. Make sure you factor taxes in when making this decision.
  17. It was released if you didn't have a chance to look at it. The 16 year TAFMS restriction is still in place which is frustrating. And before you say, "well they already know they have got you," consider this: that could be the difference in staying past 20. I know of numerous folks (myself included) that were on the fence about extending their AGR time past 20.
  18. Since this is the PRF thread, I have a couple PRF related questions: 1) Can you point me to anywhere that has examples, suggestions, etc? I am sure someone has made a "do's and don'ts" list. 2) I am still a little confused on what can an can't be put on there. For example, I was an Army officer before I got tired of sleeping in the dirt-should I put a line or two highlighting that seven years? Thanks in advance. I do have two copies of successful PRF's but both of those guys were way more accomplished than me.
  19. WTF? (**NSFW**)

    Fair enough. The whole "safe space" thing certainly belongs right here in the wtf thread!
  20. WTF? (**NSFW**)

    What in the world are you talking about? Can you provide some examples of your personal experience with "whiny little bitches who don't want you to infringe on their safe space?" I ask because I was stationed there for two years in the Army and five years in the Air Force. I went to grad school at UCLA. I have skied every mountain (except June Lake and Northstar), kayaked nearly every river, and surfed from Santa Barbara to San Diego. I have even spend many a fun weekend in San Francois with my wife. I think the single most annoying person I ever ran across in all of that time covering every inch of that state was one D-Bag in Monterrey who was smoking a joint just steps away from a restaurant we ate at. My Texas experiences? Just like California without the outdoor activities I love. You sound like someone from Georgia talking about New York in 1859.
  21. WTF? (**NSFW**)

    These generally sweeping polarizing stereotypes are so absurd. Have you never spent any time in the Central Valley of California? It is Texas with mountains to the east. Have you ever spent any time in Austin or Dallas? They are similar to California cities just with no ocean. I have lived in both states (among the 16 I have resided in) and they are my two favorite behind my home state of Oregon.
  22. It is absolutely stunning to me it will be June tomorrow and it still isn't out. I don't buy the "it's because there isn't a budget yet" argument whatsoever. I still put this squarely on the Air Force. If it were a priority, some flag officer would have made sure this gets included in the CR or attached with other spending. Rumor has it the 15 year TAFMS restriction will still be in place for AFRC folks.
  23. AGR Curtailment

    Here is a new thing I am starting to see: commanders simply saying, "I won't consider dealing with your curtailment request unless you already have a replacement lined up." I know of this happening in the case of both fighter and heavy pilots. And neither have found a replacement yet.
  24. Edwards AFB

    Buy! I wish I'd never sold my rosamond house and think the av will continue to appreciate. I am not bullish on a lot of real estate in the west but I still think the av will be a great investment.
