    ENJJPT or UPT for AFSOC?

    Where’s Toro to give the young’n some mentoring?
  4. I'm not sure that's correct. That was one of the big spears thrown at the original version: no USERRA protection, and I'm not reading a substantial change to that position with the current iteration. However, I worked alongside quite a few furloughees in the past decade, and their airlines were willing to play ball and let them defer recall to stay and finish 20, and then return well after their 5y clock had long expired. So who knows?
  5. Sure. But that same conversation needs to also happen with the A-staffs who conjure up quite a lot of the queep.

    Changing/Switching airframes

    Met lots of “recats” who were either unsure how they had been recatted or felt they had been sold a bill of goods. Will be decades before the TAMI hangover is gone.

    Viper Mishap at Lake Havasu, AZ

    MX is asking for a pilot to go get it, otherwise it's an OPS CNX for the morning go.
  9. With a family? uhhhh, no.

    Raptor Gear Up at Fallon?

    Let’s cut to the chase then. If he wasn’t Green Dot current, look no further.

    History Friday

    I don’t know, I think it’s a fitting description. If the thing actually flew, it looks like it would be a horrible nightmare for both the flyers and maintainers.

    Help with a Divorce

    If you do not have to involve finance/DFAS, then don’t. That’s an entirely unecessary risk; they will fvck something up, given the opportunity, as you’re already experiencing. I paid mine via auto bank ACH.

    What's wrong with the Air Force?

    Had my work laptop on the passenger seat when I got stopped once. Amn Snuffy reading from his clipboard "Sir, the reason we stopped you [lots of words] searching for contraband, government property...[more words]...do you understand the briefing?" Yes, go bananas {while I stand there checking FB on my phone}. Search over. "Sir you are free to go." Uuuuuhhhhh, can you read me that part about what you're looking for again? "[words]...government property...[words]" . Ok, so...nuthin? No? You sure? Final answer? Hokay then, deuces! No shit. Bradley Manning could have been driving off base with the motherload. Theater.

    TAMI-21 Pilot Survey

    And wouldn't you know it, just a few months later, TAMI dudes started getting TX orders. A few that I know are still in. TAMI was a lesson in values. Shared values. And messaging. And fucking up that messaging...wholesale. Yet, noone was fired, near as I can tell. Back to values...
