  1. I previously used NBoKC (saw the recommendations here) and everything was super easy. Like Hindsight said, you will just have to give LESs and several years of history. Also, if needed, you can get your commander to write a letter saying you have xx amount of drills, xx amount of FTPs, AT days, etc and at 1LT pay, you will be guaranteed to make xx dollars. It may take a little more effort for part-timers to get it done, but it happens all the time.
  2. Between Dec-Jun '03, I spent many days/nights sitting in the U-2 hangars guarding the planes as a security forces airman. Definitely lots of memories from that place.
  3. Thanks for the reply. I had heard several versions, but wasn't sure. What you said is correct from what I'm seeing. After checking mypers, I found dates for the SecAF & SecDef (just happened). My date of rank does now show the date I met the state board. Thanks again.
  4. For guard guys, can you tell me the process/timeline for date of rank and pay(or backpay). For example, once the PV has been approved by SecDef, is that your new DOR? After that it has to be passed on to the National Guard Bureau? How long does that process usually take? Is it after the NGB approves it that you actually start getting paid at new rank? Thanks
  5. I don't know anything about HALO, but what altitude is considered high? When do you need O2?
  6. That only happens to the special crews with Navs
  7. If one were to file an 1801/FAA international flight plan through Foreflight or DUATS(800wxbrief), how do enter AR Tracks or ALTRVs in the route of flight and in block 18?
  8. Post now. I believe most airlines like to see apps updated frequently. Even if you aren't currently, and may not be available for a while, it looks good to keep it in queue with updates at regular intervals to show interest. That's just my suggestion, though.
  9. I think I pulled the trigger on that one as I saw your post. Arrived today. Thanks.
  10. I haven't been in a while, but believe ACU type ball caps are now authorized in CENTCOM. What are the best brands and where are people getting them? Thanks for any input.
  11. latest and greatest from the deid... https://www.airforcetimes.com/articles/air-force-as-many-as-135-patients-may-have-been-exposed-to-hiv-hepatitis-at-al-udeid-clinic
  12. Sharyl Attkisson, a former CBS investigative journalist and author of Stonewalled, wrote in her book about Petraeus, which could bring a different perspective on why the federal government might bring up felony charges. http://sharylattkisson.com/the-u-s-govt-vs-gen-david-petraeus/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+SharylAttkisson+%28Sharyl+Attkisson%29
  13. I got a Fenix PD34 2014 Edition several weeks ago for doing preflight walkarounds. There are 5 different intensities that you can choose, as well as a strobe that is at max brightness. Typically, I use the mid brightness, which is 180 lumens and last up to 10hrs. The max brightness puts out 960 lumens. Very happy with it so far. For $70, I don't think you could find much better out there.
  14. Why is this in the WTF thread? Seems pretty legit to me
  15. Why is everyone getting upset by what Butters says?! For one, who cares! If that is what his idea of a good QoL is, so be it. In fact, I bet most everyone that is getting pissy about his comments are airline/future airline types. Him not going the airline route is actually beneficial; one less guy clogging up the pool of applicants for the majors. Let him speak and maybe he will convince some others to follow his lead. Just my $.02
