  1. Stuck at Kef

    Nope! The FBO there will get you out to the rental car place and you book your own hotel in town. Park Inn by Radisson is pretty nice. Suggest you also check out the Blue Lagoon if you have the time. You'll need to buy tickets for it ASAP as they book up quick. bluelagoon.com is their website. I was just there last year so let me know if you want more info.
  2. myPay down

    Happens every year this time. System overloaded. Standard ops.
  3. Wait, so now the flight pay bump from 6 to 14 years aviation service moved to 10 years aviation service? And it's been effective since last April? Looks like i'll be getting some back pay coming.
  4. New BAH rates are out.

    ers this should be about who should get paid more if you have dependents or not. This thread should be about the year to year ass raping DOD has doled on its members by screwing us out of pay for housing. Housing that in many cases has gone up and we continually get paid less.
  5. New BAH rates are out.

    Charleston: Down $200 on average while housing rates continue to go up. Thanks a lot cocksuckers.
  6. AFPAK Hands- Opportunity Beckons

    GFY. Thanks for your service.
  7. Shaw. That place is terrible. I'd take Creech any day over that place. Never been to Cannon so can't say if it's better than that. If the Air Force was concerned about QOL they could have picked from dozens of other bases. This sounds like some SC congressman lobbying for their area.

    Up $140 in CHS. I'll take it.

    Unfortunately you're incorrect with regards to sending an appraiser out prior to 95%. It can be done with a little more effort on the bank/builders part (a few more docs and a revisit verifying completion by the appraiser). Furthermore the appraisal wasn't even ordered until the schedule completion date and VA appraiser times are 7 business days. Your agent should have at least ordered the appraisal the week prior. Thanks but i've already talked to one of your senior managers who did not do much to help. Water under the bridge at this point.
  10. It's code 1. Just stating a point.
  11. Chang is nothing but a troll. I'd trust a wet fart over the words he spews as truth.
  12. New BAH rates are out.

    Just like the flat rate perdiem that was enacted a couple years ago, this is nothing but an erosion to military member compensation. I'd estimate that for each year of savings they could probably build 69% of a F-35.
  13. New BAH rates are out.

    That's how it reads. So you will no longer get compensated for utilities as what the current BAH is suppose to provide. My retirement date can't come soon enough.
  14. New BAH rates are out.

    Senate version passed earlier today with BAH reduction included. I'd advise to call your representatives and start voicing your opinion. There will be no grandfathering in this program. Any PCS after 1 Jan 18 and you'll have to work with the new system.
  15. VA Loans

    Would not recommend NBKC. Worst experience I've had dealing with a bank. Closing was delayed over 7 day due to the bank not properly scheduling a VA inspection in a timely manner. We had 40+ days to close from entering into contract for a new home build and was guaranteed the close date would be met. $200 penalty from the builder for every day after close we were late. Bank refused to provide additional lender credit to pay for their mistake. I was fortunate enough to work a loophole on the builders side (complained house was not complete) that I got them to drop the fee. Loan agent would avoid my calls/emails when trying to figure out what the status was with the inspection that we were waiting for. Loan manager was no help in trying to close quickly either. Assumed no responsibility for how badly this was handled. On the second established closing day I still had to wait until an hour prior to closing to get all the docs to the lawyer even though the inspection was complete 5 days prior. Even after the original close date the bank was asking for extra forms/letters from me, which should have been requested weeks prior. Buyer beware.
