  1. I am a CSO so I wouldn’t be eligible for REACT anyway. So no, I was not put in the study. As for monitoring, the waiver does not require monitoring as long as I still pass the normal vision tests. The optometrist wants to re-map every year but that is not required for the waiver.
  2. Brings up an interesting question.. if Aircraft I fires the missile, and aircraft B guides it, who gets the kill/green star?
  3. Quick follow up for anyone who searches this. My waiver was approved in less than a month. The waiver is indefinite so no renewals required.
  4. We had local guidance and Moody and DM, but that was all rescinded when the new AF guidance came out and we just follow said guidance.
  5. Situation: I am an HC-130J CSO who has been flying for 8 years. Recently I went to get corneal topography done as part of the workup for LASIK/PRK. During this they found abnormal corneal topography in my left eye. The optometrist said it shouldn’t affect my vision but it is DQ for surgery, no big deal, but the flight doc called me the next day saying I am now DNIF pending a waiver. Vision details: my current RX is Left (S -1.50, C -1.00, A 170) right (S -1.25, C -1.25, A 013) I see 20/15 corrected in both eyes, perfect depth perception and color vision. I show no symptoms of any other eye issues. Question: how good are my odds at a waiver here? The flight doc sent the paperwork up and said the process is usually 1-2 months. I really want to keep flying I even signed a bonus, but this has me worried.
  6. I think we should go blue as well, if we have to be different lets do it with heritage, we had blue thread on all the previous utility uniforms.
  7. The footwear portion of 36-2903 for the bag says any boot in [insert range of paragraphs here]. The new memo adds the brown boots to one of those paragraphs. I have been wearing my brown boots with my bag for about a month now.
  8. Not sure where you got pin on from my post, I expressly stated sew on or velcro...
  9. They go in the same place as on the ABU’s and BDU’s before that. You have the choice of either adding velcro for the wings, or sewing everything on (wings, tapes, rank)
  10. None in salary, but they get their bonus tax free (even if way more than CMSAF montly) if deployed
  11. Maybe we should make an HB-52 lol... after all we did use converted strategic bombers (SB-17 & SB-29) for rescue in the 50’s. In all seriousness that is awesome!
  12. our guys are wearing OCP patrol caps home station and OCP ball caps down range regardless of whether they wear the regular OCP 2-piece or the OCP Massif 2 piece
  13. Massif makes an OCP version of that exact uniform. We have a couple people testing them at our squadron. They love it.
