  1. Yep, that's my point. T-0 - Outside the Air Force T-1 - HAF T-2 - MAJCOM T-3 - WG/CC There's no tier for NAF.
  2. Probably not many rated people. We can't even release people from my community to do "high-priority" staff jobs or other gigs (like the financial leadership thing). Can't imagine they'll release you to not fill a billet for three years.

    WTF? (**NSFW**)

    These are our allies...
  4. AFGSC is already our waiver for anything above the WG/CC. Remind me which tier of waiver authority the NAF holds again?
  5. Aside from all the financials... There's a reason people are battling right at year twenty. So far, the Air Force has been unable to overcome this reasons. Why would someone who got out due to the BS, started another career, and planted the family in their permanent town want to come back? Seriously... People can already run these numbers before they retire. Why would coming back on AD years later be any more appealing than just staying?

    TSgt John Chapman MoH saga

    I don't fault him for leaving Chapman behind. In that kind of chaotic situation, having already taken multiple casualties, and trying to evacuate whoever was left, I can definitely see how easy a mistake that would be to make. I am upset with the SEAL community's inability to look at the video and admit the mistake, and to double-down by arguing Chapman doesn't deserve the MoH.
  7. Except that 12th doesn't send all of 12th at a time. So they're already splitting COCOMs. Just like when we send BUFFS to Guam (PACOM) and Bones to AUAB (CENTCOM). How hard would it be to dissolve those staffs and put their positions at the MAJCOM?
  8. We could probably just dissolve the NAFs entirely. Do they actually do anything? In my somewhat limited experience on the Group and Wing staff, I've never sent anything to 8th Air Force...it always goes directly to AFGSC. Get rid of the NAFs and you may have a decent shot at staffing some of the MAJCOM billets currently going unfilled due to the Rated Staff Allocation Plan (or whatever we're calling it now).
  9. Twenty bucks is twenty bucks. I'm a sole breadwinner, man.

    Promotion and PRF Information

    So, why even allow the Senior Rater to allocate DPs and Ps? If the board is just going to override the decision, why even give the WG/CCs the decision at all? Just remove the check box and let the board decided if that person is a DP or P.

    How's life over there in the pilot group? Because at my wing, we have an Operations Group.

    What's wrong with the Air Force?

    Apparently it's not our job to kill things anymore. The irony is that there are probably plenty of articles out there with far more details about weapons drops and shooting terrorists that are still considered "just fine" by AF PA. I don't understand why we are so bi-polar when it comes to recognizing that the Air Force is a military branch, and therefore, that we kill people and break things.
  13. Welcome to AFGSC, where not a single WG/CC is in charge of a base that houses the MDS they grew up in. Both B-52 WG/CCs are B-1 guys by trade, both B-1 WG/CCs are B-52 guys.
  14. I think you're missing the part where these women were already in treatment for things like rape and sexual assault. I wouldn't call their judgement regarding the person who was supposed to make them whole again "impartial". It's the same reason Larry Nassar was able to get away with it for so long. People invest a certain level of confidence in their doctors to know what they are doing and to have the patient's best interests at heart.
