  1. I'm a dependo under my wife and a TG. Correct me if I'm wrong, when I'm not on orders receiving BAH my wife is eligible for the dependent BAH? My wife was told by finance they see me as ANG in DEERS instead of being listed as a dependent. Anyone have similar experience with this, curious if we will have to make frequent trips to finance once I do go on/off orders.
  2. Most of my Army pals I met in ROTC and went on to serve are now civilians. Army likes to brag about how tough they are. Every time I’m on a sweet TDY to Greece, Denmark or even the Deid, I’m thankful I’m not sleeping on the ground clutching my woobie. Your friend can keep his pride.
  3. Would love to see what the recent drops have been. There’s got to be some UCSO/ICSO people on here. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Well I would say Ed Snowden is a traitor but I’m glad to know the truth about the US spying on our own citizens. I’m also happy to see Tulsi fight for our basic constitutional rights. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Couldn’t agree more. Point is some people only view him as a traitor and lose sight of what he leaked. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  6. Say what you want about Ed Snowden. What he revealed about surveillance programs against the US is unconstitutional. I stand behind Tulsi on this. Great to see this become a bipartisan bill. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Makes sense. Do you have personal experience with this? I'm interested in getting this done relatively soon. On active duty I worked with the base Optometrist in conjunction with flight med to get the paperwork routed. I'm assuming my DSG flight surgeon is my focal point. I shot him an email we shall see if he gets back to me prior to our next drill.
  8. I was scheduled to get PRK at Keesler AFB in March before COVID came and wrecked those plans. I'm now out of active duty on terminal leave and will be a Traditional Guardsman here in two weeks. I'm interested in getting eye surgery (I'm aware I have to pay for it since I'm no longer AD). What's the process like in the Guard? I'm interested in getting this surgery done prior to going to the FTU. Do I need permission from the CC and the Flight Surgeon?
  9. Such a cliché and non-sensical thing to say. Denigrates the intelligence and respect of us card carrying Republicans. Yes it’s dumb what they’re doing. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I don’t want you to be too worried about who is at UPT as a second assignment. Many dudes came to UPT without being asked due to the shortage of instructors and an excess of dudes in their former airframe. Point was why would there be so many dudes from “insert airframe” at UPT willingly after only flying it operationally for 3-4 years. Are they burnt out, taking a knee for their family via AETC? That’s what I was getting at. Learn about as many airframes as possible because at the end of the day it’s up to Big Blue. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Unless you have Silver Wings and not the dorky cheap $14 wings from AAFES. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Here is what you should be asking your IP’s. Where do you deploy too, how often did you deploy, what bases can you go too. I had a crusty Iron Major as an instructor once tell me to look around the school house and ask the junior captains why they were at a training base so early on in their career. Many people don’t want to leave their op squadrons after their first tour. That should tell you something about their community. As a pilot on the RC-135 variants, there is not a whole lot of vault time in terms of you having your head in the books. Many aircraft besides the pointy nosed ones
  13. I’m of the mindset that it is ridiculous to make anything that grows from the Earth naturally illegal. Refining that product into something harmful is another thing. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. For those of you that do the long commute. What do you do for lodging and transportation? I’m eventually moving to my unit but until I do I have to fly to get there. Do y’all rent a room from a buddy and have a commuter car there? I’m considering doing just that until I move. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
