  1. Depends on the type of industry or position you are pursuing, emphasize keywords that align with what you are thinking. In my humble opinion, these are decent LinkedIN profiles (just did a quick random search) to emulate, and TAP will go over some of this stuff as well. https://www.linkedin.com/in/kalethwright/ "- Advised Commander/CEO on leadership, health/welfare, and utilization of 5,700 personnel at world’s largest air refueling wing resulting in successful execution of 56,000 flying hours and 6,500 missions with a 97% mission effectiveness rating" The focus is on the w
  2. Get a professional photographer to do your profile picture, should cost around $200 or so. You might be able to get away with iPhone portrait mode but don't use a casual or funny profile if you are serious about looking for a job. Use keywords in your description or history that civilians can understand and search for. Instead of SQ/DO try something like Assistant to the Regional Manager. You get the idea. Golden LinkedIN might also come with online courses you can take in different fields that gets you certificates that will go on your LinkedIN profile as well.
  3. At the end, the VA's bureaucracy and inefficiencies were just too much to handle for the terrorists. The terrorists chose to surrender and be taken away rather than continue to argue with the VA staff...
  4. But why the VA hospital??? Sean Patrick Flanery (Boondock Saints) stars as decorated army veteran Jason Hill. While on a routine visit to the local VA hospital, organized terrorists infiltrate the building and take hostages, including a decorated general, and Hill's wife. The highly trained veteran is outnumbered and the last line of defense, taking on a building full of armed insurgents before it's too late. https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/assault_on_va_33
  5. Inflation is here already. Look at real estate and stock markets. And it's not just in the U.S. And for fucks sake, $20 for haircut at Bolling??
  6. We ain't gonna do shit in Thailand or Myanmar. Complicated situation and everyone sucks. We are lucky CG is still going on uninterrupted in Thailand. Thailand - Been under human rights scrutiny since ~2014, new King and PM are both unpopular. Young people want to overthrow the government. The student leaders are arrested. Heavy COVID impact. Soi Cowboy is empty... Myanmar (Burma) - ASSK got released from prisons, partners up with the Junta to shit on the Rohingyas and is under human rights scrutiny. The Junta arrests ASSK and putting down mass protest.
  7. We literally went through this exactly 10 years ago. I guess we didn't sanitize enough the first time around. What's next? Return of Blues Monday for the sake of heritage? Re-rewrite of the AF song?

  9. Different Service, same shit show. https://www.armytimes.com/news/your-army/2020/12/08/defense-bill-would-pause-army-combat-fitness-test-roll-out-pending-an-independent-study/
  10. The whole thing was nothing but a typical AF good idea fairy experiment that does more bad than good. The Lackland GS-13 who invented the program was able to persuade the GOs to go along with this thing that morphed into a promotion and force shaping discriminator. Let's not forget the birth of the FACs who are made up of unqualified GS-6s that had more power over an airman's career based on how tight they want to pull on the tape or the visual inspection of the elbow angles. It was never about health, everything we do in the Air Force is about promotion first and foremost. How can I
  11. The drawback is the Dems might lose a Senate seat if she leaves for the Pentagon.
  12. The RIF was set in motion when the USG decided to cut FY21 DoD budget in 2019. Then in Summer 2020 we announced we are pulling out (STS) of Germany and sending some folks back to CONUS while starbursting then rest all over Europe. We are also pulling chock on AFG. With the AFG troops coming home, what will they be doing? You factor in COVID, no one is leaving the military. We don't have another war to replace AFG (yet) to keep everyone gainfully employed.
