  1. I see so problem with what you did. Some people write out "hashtag", so using "pound" in its place is perfectly acceptable. I can't see why you'd be punished for supporting the #metoo movement. For if you do, then shouldn't we blame the whole movement itself? And if the whole movement itself is guilty, then isn't this an indictment of our social institutions in general? I put it to you, Commander - isn't this an indictment of our entire American society? Well, he can do whatever he wants to you, but I for one am not going to stand here and listen to him badmouth the United States of America. Gentlemen!
  2. When I was applying to OTS, my recruiter asked what other positions I'd like to put on my application. My words to him were "you can just put pilot down 3 times". He responded with "well putting other positions down shows the board that you're willing to do anything to join" and my response was "I'm not joining to be a nav. If I can't be a pilot, I don't want to be in the AF." I was selected for my pilot slot a few weeks later. Bottom line, don't put something down that you are not prepared to be doing for the next 6-9 years. You'll realize quickly that no one will look out for you but you.
  3. It's impossible to wash out of UPT these days so you'll probably be fine
  4. I'm a TR who can't travel to my unit because I'm out of the local area. It'd be nice to have that option but until then I'll just continue to sit on my ass, drink beer, and grow a beard.
  5. Sarcastic? I too am a junior guy with SWA and give me this job with the uncertainty over AD any day. I'd honestly rather go apply at Home Depot and sort hardware than plan an ORI or build a power point for the WG/CC.
  6. I'm not saying walk in there in flip flops with a cigarette in your mouth because you're guaranteed a job, but it's going to take a lot for us mil types to really fuck it up to not get a CJO from somebody. I personally don't know a single mil guy/gal that hasn't gotten a single CJO because they fucked up the interview, but of course anything is possible once the door is closed and it's just you and the company suits.
  7. The only thing keeping a mil dude from getting hired by ANY major right now is going to be a felony or failed drug test.
  8. I'm all for sticking it to the man, but I don't think I could ask for 21 days PTDY leading up to a 106 day block of leave with a straight face. My CC would probably get a good kick out of it too.
  9. The medical portion was probably the easiest of the entire process, at least with me. You schedule an appt with your SHPE, he/she will then schedule you a couple appts, and when those are complete, you'll get your 422. Pretty straight forward.
  10. I'm pretty sure AA will be hiring anyone with a pulse for the next 6-9 years, so as long as you're still breathing and have managed to keep your felony count to <2, you'll be fine.
  11. Stop what? Is anything I said untrue? I'm not speculating, I'm just saying something doesn't add up and I'll be damned if I'm going to take some Taliban reporter's account as truth.
