  1. Blended Retirement System Puzzle

    Our guy is an enlisted troop who stayed DSG. Not sure why he preferred to be T5, but his call and we get to maintain his knowledge and experience.
  2. Blended Retirement System Puzzle

    Our first one started this week and he can’t be any happier.
  3. The new airline thread

    That wasn’t you in the DEN USO Thursday morning was it?
  4. RUMINT: AD FTU F16s to Kelly Field

    I remember the ramp at MacDill being loaded with F-16s and a bunch of other iron back in 1994 prior to the Haitian Vacation.
  5. The 105s were awesome and the easiest thing ever. It was too easy sometimes as we had a few get busted for signing them on a swing thru on the way to their airline commute. Needless to say, the process changed thereafter.
  6. I have the change message. I haven’t read it yet since it’s the weekend and it wasn’t pressing. I’ll forward it to your .mil.
  7. The word is the Bureau is short-handed. Things are taking forever. It’s hard to get anything pushed thru unless you personally know someone up there in A1. I do not and it’s like a black hole when packets go there. Pipeliners’s packets seem to move a little faster than already rateds, which doesn’t really make sense.
  8. Must be a young un.
  9. I think @17D_guy may be the only one. I’ll get my lone 17D to check-in here. He will definitely be able to answer your questions. He and the shop NCOIC broke down the difference between a 3D0 and 3D1 for me, but I’d rather he explains instead of me.
  10. I’m interested in seeing the responses. I not highly confident there are many Cyber Warriors perusing this forum.
  11. Who cares, it’s numbers. Papote do what’s right for you and don’t worry about the recruiter. Contact an ANG unit with a Cyber group and talk directly to them. I think the one on my base is posting an officer position as well. Can’t speak to their manning numbers, but they should at least talk to you.
  12. Cut the order for 179, break order for whatever amount of time, cut new order. Total seasoning time?
  13. Drone Pilots: We Don’t Get No Respect

    The missions I know about are legit and I do remember the days of moving stuff around, but RPA is different. After reading this article this morning, my kids were watching Disney’s Planes. There’s a line in the movie where Dusty is arguing with Skipper about how he’s a crop duster-he’s flown thousands of miles but he has never been anywhere. All I could think of are these young 18Xs that will never get to go anywhere. I couldn’t imagine 20 yrs of this, and in constant combat ops. PM me if you want to talk

  15. Taxes, the Deficit/Debt, and the Fiscal Cliff

    Is this time as well. Formal training is also exempt. Our Technicians are furloughed, will report Monday with expectation of being sent home if agreement isn’t reached. Us AGRs are business as usual.
