  1. From a friends FB post - "I just want to fly airplanes. Why do they make that so fucking hard?" Long story short, my buddy flys Hercs. Was selected to be a T-38 IP at Sheppard. He went through ENJJPT during the "drones are as good as fighters" days. Didn't do as well as he'd liked, but got to fly. He's one of the best men I know. Enrolled kids in new school, wife got a new job she'd always wanted, put down money on a house they were going to close on this week. Then of course the USAF made a brilliant decision to NOT have him PCS 6 days before he was to close on that house. I'll let him say why - "So how do I explain what happened without violating Article 89 of the UCMJ? Last week, a… person… made a blanket decision to reject and/or revoke all waivers for T-38 pilots going to PIT. I required a waiver to become a T-38 instructor pilot. This was not because I didn’t have enough flight hours or an excessive number of Q-2 or Q-3s, but because following pilot training I hadn’t flown a fighter or a bomber. I flew the Herc, and that meant that I wasn’t as qualified to fly the T-38 as, say, a brand new fucking FAIP with 1/20th the flight hours and a decade less experience. But it's not just me, it's everyone. Blanket rejection and revocation of all waivers. None of it makes fucking sense to me." Pilot crisis is solved folks. Guess the airlines are done hiring.

  3. Fact. My friend - a boarded cyberspace operations sq DO. He led the unit through some of the missions I've posted in the Cyber thread. You know, the ones in the new york times, and CYBERCOM is briefing Congress about....MSM didn't make it into his records (shitty CC didn't bother to make sure it happened)...passed over. Thankfully he's hitting the supplemental...but really?

  7. Oh hey, fuck that guy. His wiki has been updated since the last time I checked. Looks like he carried on his same antics in the corporate world after failing out of education - "He has also served as a director of now defunct Massey Energy, a major coal company which closed after flagrant safety violations during his tenure."

  12. Welcome to the new world we're in. Fun, isn't it? EDIT - That article is fucking garbage. MSNBC-like in the information, editorializing it provides.
  13. Fact. People getting worried if they got the right thread color in patches. Fuck it, no one knows for at least 2 years what's right or not. Have fun.
