    DoD "ready" for DADT repeal

    And it looks like Tony Carr's recently coined "Welsh Doctrine," which maintains that military members have almost no right to freedom of speech on or off duty can trace it's origin to this issue. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G920A using Tapatalk

    DoD "ready" for DADT repeal

    Man, the whole saga is pretty disheartening from the standpoint of personal freedom. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G920A using Tapatalk
  3. What's the big draw with Southwest that's worth the extra money? Isn't everyone else hiring?

    VA Claims

    So you're saying that since you know some people abusing the system then 95% of people are also abusing the system? And that instead of improving the quality of the VA so it can provide the service that the government promised we should just limit it to people who have had their legs blown off?

    VA Claims

    Unscorable at 6. It's earned compensation, not an entitlement. If my back and neck are going to hurt for the rest of my life then I expect to be compensated by my employer whether I'm able to hold a different job or not. Just like the GI Bill and the retirement pension, it was part of the deal when I signed up.

    Panetta to Lift Ban on Women in Combat

    Do they still require cock pushups? That's the only gender-specific exercise I can think of. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G920A using Tapatalk

    Leadership at the 'Deid

    W From page 1 this very thread, circa 2005.
  8. +1 for Cobra Kai. Got the job done, the price was right, and the location worked for me. A word of warning, though..they will charge you for going over the alloted time even though their instructor is the one driving the profile on the practice flights. A 30 knot headwind at 3,000' makes for a long sortie.

    Privately Owned Drones

    So what? I'm talking about liberty, not safety.

    Privately Owned Drones

    So what gives manned aircraft the liberty to freely use the airspace but denies the drone operator the ability to also use the airspace as they would like?

    Any small/med business owners here?

    Are you running a meth lab?

    F-16 & Cessna mid-air over SC

    2,300' AGL, 300 KIAS, 15nm radar downwind is an every day occurance where I'm at. Mix fast and slower jets in the pattern and that's what you get.

    Any small/med business owners here?

    I'm a Reserve AGR (full timer) and own a small business. It's not the most time consuming thing in the world but it occupies a lot of brain bytes. I couldn't imagine doing it while I was in UPT.

    Looks like he was on a low level commonly known as "radar downwind."

    Maj Gen Keltz fired

    Well, if you're handing out Art 15s for naughty text messages between consenting adults then maybe you shouldn't use racial stereotypes in a public forum.

    Is this true for the military with our pension system?

    Shhhh...Don't talk about the A-10

    One time we had to stop launch for a few minutes when a flock of birds landed on the runway. We're sitting there in EOR and here comes Post hauling ass down the runway in the white top trying to chase the birds away. It was pretty funny to see them take off about 5' up in the air then land after he passed by. I could just picture how angry he was that they weren't respecting his authoritah.
