  1. I've searched to no avail, and not sure if Finance Guy is still around but here is my question since the JTR isn't very clear (go figure). Scenario 1: Let's say that I'm on a 179-day TDY in country A living off base, that turns into 183 days TDY (not including travel days). So under the flat rate per diem rules, I would receive 55% of the full rate for country A. I get that. Scenario 2: Now let's say that at the beginning of this TDY I arrive in country A, spend 10 days there, then go TDY to country B for 2 days before returning to location A for the remainder of the 171 days. For this scenario, my understanding is that I would be paid full per diem for the 10 days in country A, 2 days in country B, and then 75% of the full rate for the remaining 171 continuous days at country A. Or would I still get paid at the 55% rate for country A since my total time there was 181 days, although it was not continuous. Any help would be appreciated! This shit would be much easier to figure out if we didn't have this stupid flat rate BS. Techsan
  2. Staff Officer, Pentagon 1. Ops Tempo/Deployment M-F, 0730-1630. Deployments aren’t too common…mainly because they are good deal to Staff Officers as they get them out of the building for months at a time. 2. Lifestyle/ Family Stability Stable. You can expect to be home every night, as well as most weekends. That is unless you work in the Engine Room or Joint Staff, then you can expect to work 0630-1930 M-F, and sometimes on weekends. You’ll find yourself making unnecessary dental appointments just to get out of the office 3. Community morale You work behind a desk in a small cubicle, far removed from anything with wings or rotors. 4. Advancements & Future of the airframe You’re well on your way to your next rank, especially if you’ve mastered TMT. The future of the Staff Officer is bright…they’ll always needs someone to write pointless bullet background papers, and recycle power point briefings. 5. Preferred PCS locations N/A

  4. VA Loans

    I'm kind of curious to know as well. I purchased just 5 months ago...$500K @ 3.75% for a 30-yr fixed VA. Are rates really that much lower to be worth an IRRRL?
  5. VA Loans

    Any lender credit with that rate?
  6. Free app for tracking mil pay, DTS, AROWS etc.

    Seems legit. Where do I email my SSN & credit card?
  7. VA Loans

    Just closed on our VA loan with NBOKC, and was blown away @ the service we received. Matt Hering was our guy & was always available to answer questions over the phone or by email, even on the weekends. Like others have mentioned, both our agent & the seller's agent were skeptical that we could close in 30 days, but Matt & his crew easily surpassed their expectations. His good faith estimate was only $5 off from actual closing costs. We had the choice of 3.5% and no lender credit, or 3.75% with $6700 in lender credit. Here's Matt's info: mhering@nbokc.com 913-383-6479 www.nbofkc.com/mhering
  8. VA Loans

    What kind of rates are guys getting these days for a VA loan? Been thinking about jumping in.
  9. Promotion and PRF Information

    We must see said checklist.
  10. Non Continuation for passed over Majs

    Tanker dudes are 11M. Maybe he's talking about an FTU guy?
  11. Non Continuation for passed over Majs

    You've been in 15 years, and aren't going to put in another 5 yrs part-time to get a retirement later in life? You must REALLY hate the AF.
  12. Promotion and PRF Information

    I'm interested to hear how the twice passed over guys fared. Out of 3 guys I know, 2 were offered TERA, and 1 was continued. The one continued has prior RPA experience. Hmmmm.
  13. Promotion and PRF Information

    The DP allocation was 40% last year for IPZ, and this year was 60%.
  14. Non Continuation for passed over Majs

    My $ is on continuation being offered for the twice passed over guys, vice non-continuation and TERA. I'd be willing to bet the promo rate will be at or above the 84%.
  15. Depends what you are using them for, but generally speaking 1 point = 1 cent for most categories (travel, gift cards) Cash back: 1 point = .625 cents
