  1. PSDM is up on myPers Cooter
  2. Totally agree, There are multiple 11X/12X in critically manned career fields at my current job. Very little what we are doing involves air at all and in most cases NOTHING to do with it. Not one of us here can come with a plausible reason for us to be here given the current aviator retention issue. YOu have a higher probability of getting forgotten about in critical windows than you do anything else. Cooter

    Afghan Caravan (208) 365

    Yeah called a while back and the earliest I heard was Feb19 which would keep me beyond my normal staff “get out of jail free card.” I’m also investigating another flying option as well which could also be a quick turn. I may give the -365 guy another ring regardless. Cooter

    You hear any mention of 12S? I’m HIGHLY interested but heard the call would be fall at earliest. Cooter

    Hahaha sorry bad joke, I was asking for me. Trying to seek out a flying -365 as I am looking for a change of pace from my intellectually stimulating (sarcasm) Joint job. Cooter

    More Uniform Changes!

    Can I get a talk on to where to buy (reg would be helpful too!)...I want the couple of AFSOC guys at my shitty staff job to post up one more F U to the dumpster fire that is our command. We’re also having to wear ABUs due to some additional shenanigary... Cooter...dying on staff

    SHACK! We were on the cusp of going up to KS to get some backseat time as well. Two things that hindered it at the time (2014/15) was lack of data and human-machine interface. You can actually pack more into it than two people could realistically handle. The modular bay can (20x3x3 if I remember) hold weapons, sensors, fuel in a mix if need be. BLOS being what is and the potential opens even more doors, think dudes in a JOC controlling sensors, etc. plus the log chain exists, something like 80%+ parts commonality around the world. NOT my personal choice but it has a lot going for it. Multi-sensor/SIGINT/capably armed...F3EAD in one package. Sells itself...in theory. Whatever the baseline package is add $10M+ for kit...EASILY. Regardless, somebody warm a seat for me... cooter

    True true true, very fine line. I'm personally butt hurt due to my "staff" time not counting for jack and shit. SO post school I get told it didn't count and get sent to, what I can only equate to an insane asylum. I know what the right person on a staff can do for a community but at the same time, can ID when there's a grosse oversight. Again fine balance...but my current predicament is leaning to the side of lunacy! cooter

    I was hired help at AFSOC A5 ("duties at"...which is another point of contention) but now me and 4 of my recent school grad buddies are all doing BS jobs at a "staff" (quotes intentional). GFM, force disposition, regional country plans, GSOS, general horse buggery, etc...great way to utilize the talent of a group of dudes with 20K+ flight hours (half or more combat I'm sure). We've done maybe a few things that have required any air expertise let alone SOF air expertise. "Is this thing on????" tap tap tap, "hello USAF, you're sending a mixed message!" How bout give us a few LAAR at staff and we'll shop them around to partners of choice (godammit, hate that term) while moving about our AOR. Plus it has the added benefit of me not wanting to swerve my car into oncoming traffic every morning...just sayin'! cooter
  14. Just realize you might be MORE than excited after a dozen deployments, a year of school and two years of staff that you'd do anything to get back to that...literally anything. Be careful what you wish for down the line, those three years combined are enough to make anybody want to suck start a 12-gauge...unless you're ONE of those people. AND yes I do mean YOU people.
