    What's wrong with the Air Force?

    Isn’t this why we have WIC? So commanders can do command shit and have an expert like this on staff to integrate/deconflict effects?

    Personal credit card on the road?

    Local voucher is a decent fix. When they cancelled the orders in DTS, it should have had a message where it says something about fees paid, etc that the cancelling party likely blew past without reading where it could have been fixed in seconds. Sometimes we’re too efficient for ourselves...

  4. What the hell are you talking about? Not quite to Stockholm Syndrome yet, but your data points are entirely misinformed. After 7 months in the Kabubble, I haven't once had an "Enshallah" moment" from a student I've flown with. There have been a few "Hey, that runway looks a lot like a taxiway, don't you think?" moments, but no one here is holding a gun to anyone's head to prevent any nefarious activity. The ARC dudes coming here are flying and enjoying life. Most volunteer; haven't heard many stories of anyone having to be coerced to do it. Extending an ARC dude takes a Presidential Decree, it seems. When they volunteer to stay longer (and many of them do), they're told "no" by the powers-that-be. Force protection is an important element of what we do, but there is very little concern about 99.9% of the dudes we fly with. These guys are typically targeted more than Americans by extremists and still come to work to fight the good fight. And they're constantly under a microscope. You do have an AD commander, who is on a 365 and allows free reign of expertise across the MDSs. And no one is doing room inspections. So there is that.

    Almost as good as the article shitting on a piano burning, because God forbid anyone be memorialized in a traditional fashion...
  6. Except the reason we’re even talking about it was as a way to shorten an ADSC without a waiver.
  7. The caution here is that selecting 24 and asking for 20 later then complicates asking for separation due to ADSC, requiring waiver instead of the automation in ADSC reduction associated with selecting 20. Know what you truly want and do some soul searching when you get to this junction. A lot of pieces and effects tied together. Love our personnel system 🤬

    I don’t think WIC and IDE in-res are mutually-exclusive, as that math implies. But you’re right in the general statement of difficulty you’re presenting.
  9. *dependinf on the current rules of the game The myPers site for Active Duty Officer Promotions Unser Continuation shows what the SecAF offerings are for critical career fields. Pretty much any career field with incentive to leave gives continutuation UP TO 24 YEARS. You don’t have to select 24 years. You can ask for continuation to 20. Seen it done and seen it in progress with signs of approval.
  10. Unfortunately, the only way you’re getting out of an ADSC to retire without a waiver is if you sign continuation paperwork that expires before said ADSC. Everything else has to go to the Puzzle Palace for forgiveness. Sorry.

    Staffs actually tend to do worse. Less overall DP opportunity. Ive always been bothered by our promotion construct. We take our “top XX%” bodies and move them up to staff. Then we allocate the same DP proportion to the staff bubbas as the Wing guys. So you can be 3/4 staff weenies when you would have been solidly in the DP pool if you stayed at the Wing with a 55% DP. MAJCOMs make up for some of this in the MLRs, but the Air Staff rarely has an aggregate large enough to make a difference due to the effects of staff cuts from PBD720 (less staff is good, unless you’re looking for a DP while on it).

    What the hell is going on with the SEALs?

    It’s amplified in select-hire organizations. The beauty of being able to pick dudes who share your values comes with the curse of homogeneous values: right or wrong.
  15. Whereas the contamination is a serious issue... Airmen assigned to CVS: Let us bring nice things to Clovis. We need affordable and safe housing. Clovis leadership: If you don’t like it, you can always go to Iraq/Afghanistan. And buy these houses that jumped $95K after we went out to see what cost per square foot is in Florida. Can’t imagine where the snark came from.
