  1. That’s awesome! Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  2. The way I read it, you would need to be done with your 10 year UPT commitment. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  3. Yeah, I guess I just don’t understand what the big deal is if you had already finished your alert commitment for the month. I guess if you could somehow take leave that last week or try to drop one week of orders you would be good? Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  4. Ignorant question. Whats to stop someone from being on 30 day alert orders, sitting their 12 days of alert in the first 3 weeks of the month and then picking up and flying an airline trip the last week that you are off but still technically under orders?

  5. It was held up due to pushback from the SECDEF office if I remember correctly. We had a couple brothers on here effected where their names were pulled from both the “select” and “non-select” lists pending an appeal from the AF on why they should be promoted.

  6. What about just having an honest conversation with your Commander and telling him you feel like you need to win an award to be competitive for where you want to go, but that you feel like a dirty man-slut for submitting yourself? Ask him for promotion advice and let him draw the conclusion that he needs to put you in a position to win said awards. The Commanders that I Exec’d for always seemed to get giddy when someone came in who actually wanted to be promoted in the AF and asked for advice on how to do it. Most of the Commanders I had loved talking about how they got promoted and how their path went. Just a suggestion. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  7. I’m getting a 404 error on the link, but whatever is going on sounds hilarious. Someone fill me in? Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  8. If he had to give you a P because you were the only eligible, why the heartburn towards the Wg/CC? Lots of people have refused to do ACSC now a days. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app

    I am hearing that VA compensation in Florida is used as income in the calculations. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  10. Loved the video. It just seems so empty after a decade of “you’re replaceable”, “if you don’t like it quit”, and having to fight everyone in every other organization just to get some support. I wish them the best, but I’m glad that I am out. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  11. One of my favorite Rhat stories: OG in SW Asia, He was notorious for having the radio in his office and bedroom tuned to ground frequency in order to squash anything fun or what he deemed unprofessional. A guard crew ended up telling Ground that it would be easier to understand them if they took the dicks out of their mouths. Rhat was listening in his room, hunted down the crew and told them they were going home on the next rotator. They were both Airline dudes and started celebrating going home early. Rhat heard about it and called them back in to tell them they were going to finish out their time but they were now on probation. Lol Totally backfired on him.

  12. Yes traditional are eligible. However it comes with a 4 year commitment from what my retention office said. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  13. I know of a unit that when they were forced to switch from fighters to heavy they took all the squadron furniture threw it on the flightline and set it on fire. This was at an international airport nonetheless. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  14. Only one warning from your post... if it flys, floats or fornicates it’s cheaper to rent than own. I’ve ops tested 2 of the 3 and I’ve found this principle to hold true. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  15. This cat has made so much money recreating the wheel it’s not even funny anymore. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
