    At what unit do you sit alert and come home every night? Let’s not church it up.

    what a bummer for the (Lt) Col. What I find most aggravating is despite his 28 years, multiple deployments, thousands of flight hours etc, three minutes of (minor) misjudgments forces his retirement. I will caveat with my own personal experience - I faced a similar situation where I could have had the book thrown at me but a cooler head (sts, a three star general in this case) prevailed and instead of an Art 15 I was given a stern talking to about the finer points of the foreign clearance guide and how it spells out applicable curfews to airmen travelling to foreign countries. I don't believe reactionary leadership is systemic in the Airforce, but it sucks that the new retired Lt Col befell its wrath.

    Sanctimonious bull. It’s a shame how quick some members of the military pass judgement on others when they know no more “facts” than what they glean from a video posted on social fvcking media.

    You are a weird dude. And I cringed at your attempt at your-mom jokes. Here’s an IP demo: You fvcked your last grade sheet harder than torqued’s mom on prom night I banged on the GTIMs submit button harder than torqued’s mom backstage at motley crew. Yesterday was hotter than torqued’s mom at a Burt reynold’s film festival Torqued’s mom does squat thrusts on fire hydrants Torqued’s mom swims after troop ships Torqued’s mom licks moose cvm off pine cones That tac initial was faster than torqued’s mom’s panties coming off at sturgis That last over-g banged up the pylons worse than torqued’s mom at a bill Cosby slumber party.

    I fail that test wholesale, and have an indefinite waiver for colorblindness. It turns out being able to tell the difference between green and slightly darker bluer green has no effect on my ability to operate an aircraft.

    There was no such program in 2004. AF used to pay for 40 hours of flight time if you didn’t have your PPL. That program went away when IFT/S was implemented

    All cases go to discovery. What one forensic accountant says is not what another says. Ask me how I know.

    It’s called a prenuptial. And let’s all divulge how to hide money on a public Internet forum.

    Once you make an agreement there ain’t no going back, so long as it is covered in the agreement. If something is omitted, who knows.

    I’m no lawyer, but I’ve paid one a lot of money. With that, she is entitled to half of what you put in your tsp while you were married, unless you were lucky/smart enough to have a prenuptial (I wasn’t). As for her retirement, you were only married three years dude. She doesn’t get a pension for a three year fling (but in my state she is entitled to 3/40 of your twenty year retirement if she really wants it). I’ve known strippers for longer than that. Alimony or spousal maintenance (SM), is wildly different depending on the state in which you are getting divorced. Some states (mine) are very conservative with awarding SM if your ex can or has worked, and with such a short marriage it doesn’t matter who much she worked, it matters if she has a skill set where she can support herself. If not, you’re on the hook to pay her to get on her feet. Again, state dependent, SM is for rehabilitation into the single, self supporting world. I would consult an attorney, it may save you thousands. Find an attorney who is AV rated and ETHICAL. Regarding legal battles, if you can’t agree to a settlement, attorney fees are a BITCH. If it goes to trial, plan on ~$60k. Do your best to avoid that. I sometimes day dream about the cars, houses, vacations and college tuition that I gave to my lawyer, though she was worth it in the long run when dealing with someone who is unreasonable.

    Wrong. She is entitled to the community property accumulated while married- ie your points toward an active duty retirement. Half of the three years worth of points. Be glad she dropped papers now and not at the ten year and 5 day mark. Long story. There is a very recent USSC case that favors the disabled veteran, detracting from the separated spouse’s portion- but only if you’re disabled. The only way out of not owing her a portion (albeit a small portion in your case) if you’re pension is to buy her out and include in the settlement that she has forfeited her portion of that community property in leu of a buyout. Our walk away from a military retirement at the 19 year, 364 day mark- seen that done. 10/10 spite points. Very sorry to hear dude. Take vertigo’s advice. The best thing to do is talk. Talk to your friends, family and loved ones. It gets better. I promise.
