  1. Most flying regs (and probably the non flying ones too) are over-tiered. I saw a reg once that said “do not do X. (T-0).” The next sentence said “wing commanders can waive X locally.” WTF
  2. Things are waiverable even with a T-0. It just may require Congress or some other outside agency coordination.

    Promotion and PRF Information

    All the promoted APZs I personally know had a DP...but there are still unicorns. According to the AFPC lady, the pushes for APZ that are above the line include all the “Super P” items: strat, next DP verbiage, CC/HAF+/SDE push with top/recent OPRs to match.
  4. It used to be this way. Why does the AF have zero corporate history? This is nothing new.

    Concept aircraft

    It still looks like a tubby ugly version of an A-7.

    Promotion and PRF Information

    Yes. The previously required items for promotion (from several former board members I personally know): For a P: “definitely promote”, or even better “if I had one more DP” or the like; “ready for Sq/CC now” or very similar; HAF or higher staff; and SDE all in the push. A strat added to the push is also good. See Skitzo’s post for a good example. Anything that deviates is negative. For a DP: according to the CSAF/SECAF, only the SR’s choice of DP should matter; however, I know two people who were passed over with a DP because board members felt their record didn’t warrant a DP and the SR was trying to get someone promoted.

    OCPs Arrive Oct 1st, 2018

    Best part? The jackass was enlisted...and got an annual stipend to pay for ABUs and other uniform items. He was a real special flight engineer who thought everything should be issued.

    Until you wind up at a base that some jackass tells the Wg/CC that he doesn’t own any ABUs (fill in the uniform) because he wasn’t paid to get them. Then everyone on base gets to show up for an ABU inspection. Fun times.

    Been there done that. Skitzo will probably get promoted and Recut won’t. Unless the boards have changed that drastically in 3-4 years. A weak push is the kiss of death.

    What's wrong with the Air Force?

    This has already been done. Any T-3 item in a reg is the Sq/CC if the Wg/CC delegates the authority (used to be Gp/CC).

    What is old is new again. It has been done before.

    Military appreciation has jumped the shark

    Contractors get 20% off at Lowe’s. And some (definitely not all) of their stuff is better.

    QFT. I had a ton of O-6s dumbfounded why my record wasn’t promotable to O-5. But there is something to be said about not giving a flying about what my OPR says these days as a 2x passed over dude. The funny thing about the whole deal? I’ve impacted more pilots than pretty much most O-5 Sq/CCs and O-6 OG/CCs or Wg/CCs...and I’ll still wind up flying for some airline just like they will.

    Per CSAF, the ABU is replaced by the OCP. But to get it squadron t-shirts are gone.
