  1. What's wrong with the Air Force?

    PIC has always been the waiver acceptance authority. Also charged with the safe conduct of the flight and mission.
  2. A talented coworker owns a great engraving business and also makes customized holsters. He's a retired CMSgt and can engrave anything you can send him a picture of. Reasonably priced and quality work! @onpointholsters
  3. Flight Pay increases

    Especially considering the percentage of promotes in rated career fields isn't anywhere close to 22.3% higher (in fact, about 4% lower)...
  4. FWIW, there's a lot of guys who went to AMC first who were able to come to AFSOC (across the entire spectrum from C-21 to C-5 and tankers). These guys have the flexibility to potentially flow back (saw this with an EC-130 guy) to their previous MDS. The flow in the other direction is much more difficult. If you grow up in AFSOC, there isn't a lot of flex to get you into other options out there. If I were young again, I'd spend some time seeing the world in another MDS, and then determine if I wanted to flow into AFSOC or not later on in life. But I grew up limited to two locations and a continuous deployment rhythm to the sandbox over a decade with little opportunity to expand beyond certain theaters. AFSOC is exciting, but it can quickly become Groundhog Day. YMMV.
  5. What is right with the Air Force

    Shortest. Thread. Ever.
  6. Promotion and PRF Information

    Actually, you'll probably see select percentages go down. Why? Because everyone left will HAVE to fly the line, leaving the REMFs as the only able bodies to man the Wing Bake Sale.
  7. What's wrong with the Air Force?

    Actually, most of the non-promotes I know are/were on staff when the board met...
  8. Retirement / Separation Considerations

    Clearly the above question is meant for those without ambitions to keep ANG/AFRC as a part of their future plans.
  9. Retirement / Separation Considerations

    For those separating for the airlines: how many of you are switching to the new retirement system? Is this a consideration in the calculus for people on the way over the fence?
  10. Lost Another - Pilot OK

    Apparently also not allowed to say "fucking"
  11. Flying around Kunsan

    Hear there's a few really cheap FBOs a few hours north of the base. Check them out!
  12. RyanAir ridiculousness

    Just going to leave this here... http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4585716/Couple-sex-Manchester-Ibiza-Ryanair-flight.html?ito=social-facebook
  13. The minute the Air Force: a) ...puts Integrity First; 2) ...starts to realize the "Self" means a person is involved; and d) ...becomes Excellent at SOMETHING with regards to this shit show; ...then I'd expect others to reciprocate back to the Service and stop voting with their feet. This one-way covfefe (which has lasted for nearly 3 DECADES, for those keeping score at home) has gone on long enough. I've worked in this current job for a few years in the Puzzle Palace. I've learned promotability drives action and inaction. MOST of your GOFO members are at the summit of their careers. What drives many of them is achieving escape velocity to move on to the next job or to maximize retirement years. The very last thing many of them want is someone making waves in their portfolios since they can't go any higher. Kind of ironic considering our greatest Air Force heritage is "change"...
  14. Round 2 of no AirBnB/Crashpads

    "Suitable". Hmm. Pepperidge Farm remembers... http://www.military.com/daily-news/2016/10/25/inspector-general-report-widespread-hazards-military-housing.html https://www.airforcetimes.com/articles/al-udeid-the-ghttp://www.military.com/daily-news/2017/02/26/hundreds-attend-service-veteran-who-warned-burn-pit-hazards.htmlood-the-bad-and-the-very-ugly http://www.military.com/daily-news/2017/02/26/hundreds-attend-service-veteran-who-warned-burn-pit-hazards.html Glad the Air Force recently showed interest in the places we sleep on the road...
