    Hurricane Michael

    Dude sitting outside Tyndall main gate when eye wall hit. https://www.pscp.tv/w/bo5NxzIyNjQ5ODR8MU95SkFRV09xeW9KYkKrH5qtJnOuBdGaCtKpNjP-EkwO_K3u8DZVkr8ZYjL5?t=3s. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app

    I was down at the beach until we were under a mandatory evacuation order. Word was the base was under mandatory evacuation as well. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  4. We are Eastern Europe as well, NATO and EU members. And actually SPP=State Partnership Program. The Peace part went away in the 90s. New focus and most recent additions have been in Africa. Have fun with that. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  5. No, he meant BAO-Bilateral Affairs Officer. It’s an SPP position and it’s awesome. Similar to FAO, but doesn’t have all of the training requirements. I was one for 2 years from 2008-2010. One of the coolest things I’ve ever done. I had an office in the Embassy and an office in the Ministry of Defense. I travelled thru out the country and it rocked. Met my wife, who was also working in the Embassy. Can’t say enough good things about being a BAO. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app

    The Next President is...

    Damn, I would have had the same demeanor as Kavanaugh if I was being accused of the same as him. They were personal attacks and I don’t blame him for vehemently rebutting them. He’s supposedly never had any issues with demeanor previously while on the bench and I don’t expect that he will have any in the future. I can’t imagine he’ll receive any such treatment while in the SCOTUS courtroom. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app

    It's Official, OCPs are Coming!

    I’m reading my ANG Wing’s FAQ on OCP wear. Q. Will aircrew also wear the two-piece flight suit version of the OCP? A. The Army Aircrew Combat Uniform, or A2CU, is certified for wear in non-ejection seat aircraft. Aircrews flying non-ejection seat aircraft, including rotary wing and mobility aircrews, will be issued this uniform through their normal equipment issue process. Many aircrews in U.S. Air Forces Central Command and Air Mobility Command are already wearing the A2CU. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app

    Mustache March

    Because he had a full beard and that’s not the intent of the waiver. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app

    Mustache March

    There’s still a required no longer than length of beard with a waiver. I made someone trim it up into reg after last CC call. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app

    Upcoming Boards

    I guess every unit does it different. We have always talked to the prospects and let them visit/hang out. We announce our boards thru Recruiting, who puts out the formal announcement that we write. Using Recruiting allows us to screen folks even more since all ANG ascensions have to pre-qualify and the recruiters are the expert there. When we write the announcement, we put our requirements in there as well as the recruiters putting the basic requirements in. We let them compile the packets and then we decide who we want to interview. Keeps a lot of extra work off our plates and leta the folks that are the experts in the paperwork do their job.

    Upcoming Boards

    [emoji115] Recruiters are just the clearing house for the apps, making sure everything is in there. Once deadline is closed and they compile the packets, they pass them to the squadron. Once the board selects the candidates, the selectees are put back into contact with the recruiters to get more paperwork completed and to be ushered along in the enlistment/commissioning process.

  15. So you have less than 4 years TIS? Can you explain why you are so disillusioned? Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
