    No problem we'll just log what we need and fly what we want. MAF standard for years.

    Retirement / Separation Considerations

    So i'm pretty much screwed at this point. Even if i apply for separation that could end up getting denied and I am sent anyways. Seems almost criminal they can hold you against your will past any ADSC you have.

    Retirement / Separation Considerations

    I wished my leadership was that forgiving but i've already been told in no uncertain terms that the OG will not deal with terrorists and the orders will stick. They're forcing my hand regardless of my wishes.

    Thanks all for the help. Much better than anything I can get on base.

    Can anyone verify if I turn down this deployment I can still be forced to go regardless of extending past my ADSC? CC told me that today however he didn't know the reg. Separations folks were worthless talking to them today. Further I still don't have any email notification of this deployment.

    Thanks for the intel. I was told the training was supposedly waived so I can go at the end of the month as well. I've also got more intel from other bros about the job and it's looking like a real kick to the junk.

    A- Not sure if it was official since it was over the phone but sure sounded like it. B- Check. Did that. C- Hope so! Thanks for the info but i'm thinking this is a 179+ thus handled by the OG at my base.

    Our OG keeps a tracker for 179/365's. Last I looked the previous month i was in the lower 50% for 179s and in the bottom 10% for 365s out of 30ish folks eligible. With 8 deployments, over 3 years overseas TDY/deployed and a STRD of 2012 i'm still scratching my head how i'm short man on the totem pole.

    Don't know yet man. Just got back from a trip this morning, woke up and had a call from the CC. Still on post mission so no papers in hand yet. More to follow tomorrow. Apparently they knew days ago but waited till i got back from overseas to tell me. 🙄 Purpose for this post is trying to find the regs governing a deployment without ADSC and separating. I've been combing thru the 36-2110 but don't think it applies to a 179+

    Retirement / Separation Considerations

    I'd rather separate and get an airline gig and hope to get hired on with a guard unit to finish my 20 than to waste away in the desert for another 7 months. YMMV but i've done enough deployments in my time to know when it's worth it and it's not.

    Gents, digging this one up for some SA and latest guidance. Just got tagged a 220+ air advisor deployment and trying to find my options. ADSC is up in October, retirement eligible Jan 2020. I'd rather separate than take this one. Is it even possible to 3 day opt at this point if i already got notified?

    OCPs Arrive Oct 1st, 2018

    Glad I'll be retired by the time the mandatory wear date takes place.

    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.

    myPay down

    Happens every year this time. System overloaded. Standard ops.
  15. 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.
