  1. she was over the top... Even in the cockpit, no one could do things correct "enough" for her. Consistently tearing people apart who were trying to help her/the msn succeed... It wasn't just a periodic thing when someone slipped up, it was all the freaking time. If someone is consistently doing things wrong you either find ways to help them do it right or you find ways to get them out of that job... Problem was she couldn't get rid of everyone. Years of mental abuse from leaders like her, who only know 1 way to lead, is precisely why we can't keep good people. Good riddance, 20 years too late. Stop promoting these people.
  2. https://www.marinecorpstimes.com/news/your-marine-corps/2019/04/25/marines-fire-squadron-commander-of-hornet-involved-in-fatal-crash-with-kc-130j-that-killed-six/ sq/cc of hornet unit that had mid air with kc-j.
  3. former Sq/CC as well... PCS ADSC, no tasking, CC supported...The stupid form on MyPers doesn't allow much room to do any explaining, it is limited to a very small number of characters... not nearly enough to explain your reasons. I'm medically non-deployable and thought I was doing good by not being that "guy" that collects the benefits and can't pay the dues... and since I won't be able to fly I was looking to enter into training/school to give me a better skill. Who would have thought 2 months out of 20.5 years would be so important, apparently there is a pilot shortage and even keeping pilots that can't fly "counts"!
  4. I was recently denied for a 2 month waiver... I tried "benefit of the AF" and hardship. Long story but fell right in line with "deploy or get out" and I can't deploy for various reasons. It's a clown show, with a TSgt making the call and he could care less what some policy outside of his regs says.
  5. You think cargo loading is hard, you've never tried refueling: http://www.aerospaceweb.org/aircraft/transport-m/c141/pics02.shtml
  6. Now we know why we really conducted a "Light Attack Experiment" - to put $ away claiming we would purchase them... get congressional buy-in/support (bait), and switch to 4.5 gens at the end-game... timing is too good. OK, I'll put away my tin foil conspiracy hat. Of course, what did we expect hiring a Boeing dude as the SOD: https://www.militarytimes.com/news/your-military/2019/03/13/shanahan-faces-ig-complaint-over-boeing-ties/ “Mr. Shanahan appears to have participated in the decision to include more than $1 billion in federal funds in the 2020 budget cycle for the F-15X fighter aircraft,” the Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington said in their ethics complaint. “Mr. Shanahan’s reported conduct and comments appear to violate federal regulations and his Ethics Pledge, and CREW therefore requests that you investigate his alleged conduct.”

Fake news [/thread] https://taskandpurpose.com/stocks-marijuana "A recent story that troops and Defense Department civilians cannot hold security clearances if they invest in companies that legally sell marijuana and cannabis products has turned out to be half baked" Sent from my SM-G935V using Tapatalk
  8. Not only can we leave, we (all of us!) will make some money when we do! https://thehill.com/policy/defense/432681-paul-udall-introduce-bill-to-end-afghanistan-war $2500 each... Thanks Sens Paul/Udall
  9. What does smoking it with joe rogan do to your security clearance?
  10. It is/was only a matter of time... I doubt we're ready (as a country) to have this debate properly. I'm also interested in how the communal bathroom/showers will go in a few years (if sexual orientation is irrelevant, then modesty? is no longer guaranteed/possible). Either everyone in a single one (a la starship troopers... highly unlikely) or individual stalls/showers/etc. The eventuality won't be as nearly entertaining as the transition. Interesting thoughts from 20 years ago: https://pdfs.semanticscholar.org/8b33/c03ad294f32207a5a2ad0deecf1f4a16d8a8.pdf "If Professor Wasserstrom is correct, then sex-segregated bathrooms provide an order that fosters a heterocentrist society. Why else do bathrooms segregate by biological sex? Trans men and women, homosexuals, and bisexuals confound the purpose of sex-segregated bathrooms. Trans persons introduce the possibility that the anatomy of the "opposite" sex is present in the bathroom; homosexuals and bisexuals introduce the possibility of same-sex sexual attention. If we recognize that we are all truly pansexual, however, then there should be no need for bathrooms segregated only by biological sex. Preserving both the anatomical mystery (as if anatomy is really a mystery in this day and age) and the heterocentrist focus is no longer a priority. We may want to have individual bathroom facilities or private stalls in communal facilities that allow for personal privacy and modesty. Similarly, separate stalls may serve to reduce the incidence of violence against women in bathrooms, but our current system of sex-segregated bathrooms makes no sense from a pansexual perspective."
  11. I agree with the sentiments on some levels, but i thought the "weapon" was from the MWS acronym. Sent from my SM-G935V using Tapatalk
