  1. You’re gonna be okay man. I mean by the time you hit your Majors board, it will be back to 85%.
  2. I wonder if he knew he wasn’t going to make it or if it was a surprise to him? The blame has to fall with his numbered AF Commander right? I think that’s who writes Wing Commanders PRFs. The AF just can’t get out of its own way.
  3. Bashi, what’s going on in your life man? You’ve been a negative Nancy for a while man.
  4. The apple (or in this case the grenades and ammo) never falls too far from the tree now does it?

    If you are worried about a full time job, I know plenty of ANG units where Lts back from UPT are full time ARTs making just as much as I am. The old part time Guardsman is a thing of the past...

    Military appreciation has jumped the shark

    This is how I differentiate between what I accept and what I don’t choose to participate in. I’ve never preboarded, and when I go out to eat I make sure I tip the majority of the discount back to the wait staff on top of the 20% pre-discounted amount.

    What's wrong with the Air Force?

    We are having a safety down day... perfect opportunity to catch up on all the ancillary training that we have been behind on since we have been flying and doing the mission so much.
  9. T-6s and although you are right about Active Duty, there have been tons of reservists who have just left fighters. For what it’s worth I left PIT over a year ago.
  10. I plan on retiring from this board when I separate. Growing a beard, smoking weed down on the farm.

    Pilot Shortage Deepens, USAF is SCREWED.

    I’m freaking out about this stuff here. If I don’t get passed over it will have been over 5 years deployed thanks to my T-6 and PIT tours. Any clue on when these are going to be dealt out? Last I heard they were starting in April, but I haven’t heard any rumors of guys getting hit up.
  12. I bet you got trophies for 2nd place in soccer growing up too huh? Kidding. Yeah I’m not saying good classes don’t get good drops, it just sucks to see things not work out for good kids that you grow to root for over 12 months and luck falling on the side of some weak swimmers with less than optimal attitudes. “Needs of the Air Force!”
  13. I’m sorry, I can’t help it.
  14. Isn’t that how it always goes? Some of the best classes I had got the worst drops and some of the worst classes got the best drops.
  15. The Guard although better than AD, has its own problems.
  16. It’s a direct result to the institutional lack of focus on flying. If it’s not a priority to the AF, it tends to not be a priority.
  17. And I completely understand you calling it as you see it with your massive military aviation experience. As a PIT IP, I have been surprised by how terrible a large number of AF pilots are regardless of airframe.
  18. Damn you Hopeful. Damn you.
  19. Just when I got all the fvckin cats in the basket, you say something like this. Do you realize this pissing match happens every couple months? Nobody wins.
  20. T-38 drops look pretty rough to me. Not 2009-2011 rough, but not great.

    Emirates Short of Pilots

    There’s enough hate to throw at the Air Force without throwing it at each other. Y’all buy some whiskey tonight and just chills.
