  1. DP = 99.9% promoted P = ~50% promoted Doesn't matter what else is on there, P vs DP is the biggest discriminator. No matter what anyone says, it's all a guess how "strong" a P PRF is. Most O's (aircrew anyway) are well above average and Big Blue magnifies the smallest difference to be able to draw a cut line somewhere. It sucks that PRFs and OPRs are have unwritten rules only the select few are allowed to know, but honestly most non-military family, friends, future employers won't know and don't care. From presonal experience, don't get your ego wrapped up in the PRF and the board results. It doesn't define who you are as a person.
  2. Whatever... My name is GKinnear, and I'm a downvoter.
  3. You're maintaining it in the back stock at your local AAFES...just like every other Major... It's my preferred TTP
  4. Don't lose all faith. Check myPers for the Rated Command Oppotunities. It's not ROTC, but it's something... "Rated Lt Cols and (selects) interested...may also be considered for Air Education & Training Command (AETC) Recruiting (C83R) and Training (91C0) command positions."

    Latest Movies

    (slight spoilers to follow) Generally, I dislike prequels, it always feels rushed and parts are shoehorned in. "Ooh, look, this is the connection to that other film you like!" It felt forced and the character development and emotional hook/connection with the audience is non-existent, both of which are why Marvel movies are good. It isn't as bad as Thor 2 or Iron Man 3, I'll put around Dr. Strange. However, I, the wife, and the kids all enjoyed the movie. I disagree with @17D_guy (noted above). One scene involving a random nameless background actor I thought was unnecessary. It could have been resolved the same way to advance the story without that particular dialogue (little too close to current feminist complaints of being patronized). Some of the interactions between Captain Marvel and Nick Fury felt choppy. Probably a rushed editing job and my dislike of prequels. The soundtrack was the soundtrack of my Middle and High School. "Just a Girl" by No Doubt was too on the nose though. Additionally, I don't understand some of the decisions made regarding the Mar-Vell character itself nor the Skrulls. I'll have to wait for more movies to see if thy will eventually resemble their traditional role in the Marvel canon. I enjoyed the visual theme of the hero always standing back up. It was consistent throughout the film and a good metaphor for real life. I will also caveat all that by saying that while not near as bad as it's been reported in some outlets, I thoroughly enjoyed it, there were some issues...however I don't think I would have noticed half of them if it's media relations had been handled different. Just my opinion, but the controversy is mostly self induced. It's a good popcorn flick whose faults would have been passed over had the public not been keyed in to look for them. Overall: Solid B+. Go see it as a matinee.
  6. FYSA...LuLaRoe doesn't count as "opening a business"
  7. If you're good enough to get a BPZ DP, you're good enough to talk directly to your Senior Rater or look it up yourself.
  8. For most if us still in uniform and idealize the pre-"peace dividend" USAF...why? Sent from my Pixel XL using Baseops Network mobile app

  10. Shaw down $200 over 2-yr span...small-town dynamics repeated over multiple locations
  11. IMO the only worthwhile change is the IKE jacket, otherwise no one cares
  12. On a positive note, her three years as an ART/C-5 pilot should prove the validity of the "flying only" track not being a career killer for future command opportunities... It appears as if something's up in AMC for a ARC asset to be placed in charge, not that it'll ever make down to masses. I hope that some of the Reserve mentality makes it into AMC's thinking to slay some of the queep.
