  1. Has there ever been a more crystal clear sign that an organization is fundamentally broken than the fact that this celebratory thread (the largest in years) is for an individual essentially getting notice he is being fired? That said, congratulations!

    What is right with the Air Force

    Nah, it must be because you're a "millennial."

    Just because a place sucks less doesn't mean it doesn't suck.

    What's wrong with the Air Force?

    I always wondered what would happen if people stopped jumping through their asses to get orders. Just do nothing, and when your DEROS is up or whatever and you don't have orders, you stay an extra week while the FSS gets fucked by some O6s.

    BGI Employment

    BGI is a good company. All of the rank and file pilots they employ at the location I work at are good dudes.

    ALPA has supplemental life insurance too.

    There's no shortage of people applying to be pilots.

    Viper Mishap at Lake Havasu, AZ

    Have they eliminated SFOs out of the B course syllabus, or is that on deck for the next iteration?

    Any truth to the rumor that it was being taped for the benefit of someone's young daughter, and wasn't meant for public consumption at all?

    Syria strikes underway

    AGAIN, TO OUR VERY FOOLISH LEADER, DO NOT ATTACK SYRIA - IF YOU DO MANY VERY BAD THINGS WILL HAPPEN & FROM THAT FIGHT THE U.S. GETS NOTHING!

    Thanks for the words. The non-signature is from bureaucratic incompetence at the FSS; nothing administrative. I didn't lose my qual for any sinister reason. I did a QOL benefit analysis and told my unit I was going to move on when my palace chase ADSC expired. It's simply been so long since my fini flight that my form 8 is long expired.

    AFRC. They said I'm required to stay in until the end of the year (I assume fiscal). There is no assurance that I'll be let go at that time though - just that I'll be allowed to try again. It's like this inescapable loop, with my family caught in the middle - 1. 4Q17 - Submit letter of resignation 2. 1Q18 - Letter not signed. 3. 2Q18 - Letter not signed. 5. April 4th - Because your letter is not signed, you're stop lossed. Try again next October 1st. Go to step 1. I'm not qualified to fly my airplane anymore (I stopped flying a few months prior to submitting my letter of resignation). I'm not even assigned a job.

    From what I understand, congressional inquiries (like the IG) are pretty worthless.

    Update: just notified today that I'm stop lossed. Submitted for resignation last November. If anybody has any suggestions on how to fight this, I'd appreciate it. I'm a TR.

    Signed by whom? I have some skin in this fight, as my chain of command has been slow rolling my paperwork like nothing I've ever seen before.
