  1. I’m 2 months in and still have like 16 AFTPs that haven’t paid out. New finance system to roll out in FY2021... Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  2. Honest question, but how competitive has this program even been in recent years? Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  3. Gosh we are run by a bunch of idiots. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  4. You aren’t the only one. My best friend in my unit somehow left UPT without ever signing his 10 year service commitment. He brought it up to our Personnel people here on base but they told him that he was under a 10 year commitment to the ANG. Hopefully someone on here can point you to the right place on where to find it. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  5. Here’s one for y’all... My retired parents need to downsize from their house and I’m trying to get them to move closer to me. My dad was a Marine Vet in Desert Storm and I need to get him applied for VA Disability. They bought their house via a VA loan for $375k four years ago. They already have a family from their church who wants to rent the house for around $2,850/month. The only other income they have would be his Military retirement and I’m guessing Social Security (They are 66, but I haven’t asked them if they are pulling that yet). I found a townhome for $280k right down the road from me. With the new VA limits and law changes, what does the rough math look like? This is all taking place in Alabama. Thanks!

  6. 6 months for me with Palace Front. I emailed for an extension and was granted a 1 year extension. Pretty easy process. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  7. Yeah I failed mine too 14 years ago or so. The tech said it was the highest failed item on the test. I don’t recall what the retest involved but I can tell you it was SUPER easy. I have never had depth perception issues. Once I found out it was always 2, 3 or 4 and never 1 or 5, it made life a lot easier and I never failed again.

    Divorce

    That’s a really good question that I wish I had the answer to. I think a lot of it boils down to society and this entitlement attitude everyone seems to have. I know in my case the mentality was you owe me this, I am entitled to this. She never wanted to work and stayed at home by her choice. Even when the kids started school she was happy just sitting on her ass and going out with friends shopping all the time. Whenever I mentioned her potentially working she always had an excuse of how she was so overloaded, even though the laundry was always piled up at home, she never cooked dinner, and the house always was messy as $hit. If you ever do have to go to court you will soon find out all about sexual equality. Us men do not get a fair shake most of the time. Even with all the damning evidence that I had and the fact that our kids hate her and don’t want to live with her it was still in my best interest to settle with her out of court. If you would have flipped the script and I was the chick I would have easily had full custody and not had to pay her a dime. But yeah equal rights for women. Fcvk that. Let’s be honest women always fare better in court in almost all cases whether it’s an accused rape or simple divorce. Rant over. I am actually doing fine but I still feel like the court didn’t do justice for my kids. If I was just one case that would be one thing but I have met more and more fathers who have been screwed by the court system. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app

    Divorce

    This is spot on and exactly what my lawyer recommended. I was scared for my life the past year. Sucks to be a prisoner in your own home. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  10. Had one of my old Commanders on my jumpseat, he had just separated from the AF and was going through training. He told me that during his 2 year Command tour he didn’t PCS a single Major. 100% separated. Glad we fixed the pilot crisis. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app

    Divorce

    I definitely have more to tell, but unfortunately due to some recent developments, this thing isn’t over. Good for me and the kids, bad for her. As far as the military retirement, we were married for 12 years but she didn’t care about it. It was obvious she just wanted cash right away. So I get to keep 100% of that.

    Divorce

    That was the biggest shock. With the evidence I had, this age of “equality” and the fact the kids didn’t want to be with her, it was shocking to see how I was the one who was on the defensive. I will say that some states are better on men than others... Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app

    Divorce

    Just got word today actually that the divorce is final and the judge signed the final judgement. There is so much to tell and I’m at a loss of where to start. The good news first. I got 50/50 custody of my kids through mediation. When it all came down to it all she really wanted was money. If we would have gone to court in our county in Florida I would have gotten reamed. I got unlucky and we got assigned a pro-mommy judge. So glad we settled out of court. The craziness is enough to write a book on, and maybe one day I will. During mediation, my lawyer asked me if I knew what “Borderline Personality Disorder” was. He said that my ex definitely has it. That actually answered a lot of questions I had about what the heck happened and I’m 100% convinced this is the case. Life is sooooo much better now. I didn’t realize how miserable me and the kids were. Now that I have my own place and my own life, I feel 100% free. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app

    Second this. A while back at Sheppard personal firearms were being taken out of the armory by SF and used on the range then returned without being cleaned. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
