At my AFRC 130 unit, the OG developed guidelines on how to dole out the pain. They made a spreadsheet of the instructors (which was not made available to the squadron at large) with a timeline going back over a decade and listed all the deployments the member had done, both in and out of the unit. Some kind of partial credit was given if they were in a formal school during the unit's deployment. When the requirement dropped, they went in order of who had gone the least with exemptions for members in dwell, the CC/DO, and maybe a few others. When given the tasking, you could accept, retire, or go IRR/IMA. Management was not willing to sign a 1288 to allow transfer to another unit, and the subtext was that you wouldn't be welcomed back by the current administration if you went IRR/IMA. This bullshit made up 69% of the water cooler talk at the unit for the past year. Seems like most units went through 3-5 bodies to get a taker. Anyone in ARC who had anything to do with signing on to this hogshit needs to get dick/ punched.
