    OCPs Arrive Oct 1st, 2018

    Mandatory OCP wear date is 2021 for all USAF personnel...That’s plenty of time for the Army to come up with a new uniform that’s differs from what we’ll be forced to wear.

    That’s a decent push line, the “if I had one more” statement is normally a positive indicator to the board

    If your retiring in two years then you’re in different place than younger FGO’s. Enjoy Snacko, the ole’ 10-2 workday with two days a month restocking your goods, enjoy [emoji106]

    With the 100% promotion rate to Maj, I envision a log jam for future O-5 boards. There will have to be discriminators, hello Masters and PME becoming very important again. ACSC sucks, but for the vast majority of LAF Officers, not completing it removes you from being competitive. There’s always the unicorns that make it without completing it...but safer to hedge your bets.

    C-130 down near Savannah, GA

    The security camera footage is horrific to see. Prayers and condolences to those here that are friends and/or work with that unit. [emoji481][emoji481][emoji481]

    VA Loans

    Just wanted to pass along to the group my great experience with NKTB. Amy Stuhr Paterson was my loan officer, she was prompt and extremely easy to work with. Got a great rate, definitely recommend. Made buying home prior to my next PCS location easy.

    Good luck with your Masters Capstone ;)
  8. Friend of a friend, who is in DC as AF Fellow attended the meeting between USAF and Airlines. His words "it was a horse abortion"; the USAF viewpoint was not looked upon with any type of sympathy. The overall gist was, we are commercial business who's goal is to make $ for our stockholders and company. I guess United was the most vocal in their displeasure. Statements like "you have mismanaged your pilots for over a decade". So I don't think it went like leadership was hoping...

    All I can speak to is my experience, when I was offered continuation, that was it. I had no choice between that or TERA. You could be correct; however it seems like the AF essentially tells you what your option is. You can take it or leave without anything.

    Gents, Update, I shit you not. I guess at the HAF whomever was in charge of creating the involuntarily separated notification memos went through the promotion spreadsheet and created them for anyone whom was passed over 1APZ. Our CC called yesterday and did some digging and helped discover the complete breakdown in process. They should be getting their continuation letter shortly...Unbelievable

    Neither of these guys asked for that. They were both plannning on next assignments, and assumed that continuation would be offered. These were not shitbags either, both checked all boxes and are working staff jobs.

    Two pilots at my location; both 1APZ, neither promoted are both being involuntarily separated...Makes sense seeing as how we have a pilot shortage

    Chicken you could be correct. However my continuation was only offered until 20 years, so I don't know exactly how it works to 24 years. And it was the "will be continued to 24 years" statement that caught my attention.

    From above: "each eligible LAF major, within a critical skill listed above, selected for continuation will be continued until they reach 24 years of Total Active Federal Commissioned Service (TAFCS)." If you accept continuation and are in "Critical Skill", you'll get to stay an extra 4 years past 20...Plan accordingly gents

    Leadership at the 'Deid

    In the summer of 2004 we could still wear civilian clothes, the mandatory PT gear didn't start until I think 2006 timeframe. My 2005 tour was great, no Chiefings and ladies in Juicy sweat suits
