  1. Anyone else get pinged by leadership as to why they didn’t sign/renegotiate? I was considering renegotiating from my current 25k to 35k but this year they reduced the renegotiated amount to 25k which buys me nothing except commitment. I am truly puzzled by the mismatch between those who say it’s critical to retain experienced pilots and the message of, “You are worth $25k per year down from $35k last year.” Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  2. Nope, I’d have built 690 more F-22’s. My point is that technology has changed the core competencies of being a fighter pilot. Time to stop training like we did in 1975. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  3. Yeah, we’ll, that’s because we spent a lot of time teaching stuff that dudes had to be proficient in at UPT but never really need in real life. Number of times I’ve needed to do a formation landing in 3,500 hours of mil flying....ZERO. Granted, it’s all good stuff to have experience with but a lot of it is low likelihood contingency items, great to be familiar/safely able, not necessary to be masterful. This goes beyond UPT. Call me full of sh-t if you like but go visit the AOR, it’s PGMs and BOC 99% of the time. I can get a wingman to a CR level in 2019 much quicker than I could in 2005 and the reason is technology. I fully support updating the training syllabus and technique. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  4. “Rolling up” when I was a Lt was known as being “hog tied” and nobody was ever injured or killed. Most of us have a great story about what got us tied. F-ing 2019 pussification. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app

  6. Even at that, the USAF doesn’t auth the full amount for a lot of groups. Very telling. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  7. Nothing secret about it. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  8. I think it’s a bit higher with a “p” in the range of 45% however my point remains. If you are one of the people not destined to make O-5 even with a P, you are not in the running for school. Read another way: school slots usually go to people who were going to make O-5 regardless. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  9. Please dear God tell me this isn’t the reason anyone does it. You have a 75% chance these days of making Lt Col and if you aren’t in that group, you were never close to getting a school slot anyhow. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app

    Divorce

    Spin it to let her keep some equity in return to help fund the refinance. Do not stay financially tied to that chick at any cost. Get the f-ck away from anything that ties her spending to something that affects you or gives her leverage. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  11. Felt real nice to click to click “confirm” to opt out of consideration. Great system. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  12. Back in ‘07 timeframe I remember when I supported the COIN mentality wondering why we wanted so many -22’s. 12 years later I eat my words. We’ve seemed to learn nothing, still bogged down in the Stan. Still have supersonic A/A fighters and low level swept wing supersonic bombers spinning holes instead of light attack. A lot of criticism from many corners back then was based on the belief we had competent decision makers elsewhere. Now we’ve worn out our fighter fleet, short F-22’s and thinking about buying new F-15’s. Hindsight Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  13. 1. Undesirable attached jobs go to O-4’s 2. PCS’s will happen regardless 3. 365, O-4’s are same boat. 4. Simple, don’t apply for the CC list 5. School? Don’t apply/decline. There are a LOT of O-5’s flying the line because of the experience shortage. It’s awesome. If you are a pilot, especially an 11F, the USAF needs you more than you need it. Don’t avoid O-5 because you think life gets worse, it’s not true. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  14. Received this email today: “The DoD Consolidated Adjudications Facility (CAF)’s current legal position is that ownership of marijuana stocks is considered involvement in drug-related activities and would be a "reportable incident" under the Continuous Evaluation process. OUSDI is currently drafting implementation guidance of the Security Executive Agent Directive (SEAD) 3, Reporting Requirements for Personnel with Access to Classified Information or Who Hold a Sensitive Position. Among other reportable activities required by SEAD3, the memo will address reporting requirements for covered individuals with financial investments or holdings in companies who sell or manufacture schedule I substances legally under state law. While the DoD CAF is currently working on guidance that will address marijuana-based investments, previous guidance issued by the CAF remains effective. Marijuana-based investments are considered a reportable incident and should be reported via the SF86C through the Unit Security Assistant to the IP Office and we will submit to the DoD CAF. We will keep you informed of any changes or updates from the DoD CAF or OUSDI regarding this subject matter. In cases where your member isn't directly choosing the stocks, he or she has the responsibility to stay informed and avoid violating the federal law.” Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  15. I also applaud her political works however I’m not going to discount that while she was in in the USAF, she was known as a careerist who would do anything to make a name and get noticed. Highly likelihood of exploiting things/topics for political leverage. And until I get details, I’m always skeptical of what = rape/assault/harassment in 2019. I drove some libs nuts one evening during a Kavanaugh debate where I recounted my story of being grabbed and forcibly kissed by a girl while in a drunken state thus making me by their definition 2 min prior, a victim of assault. They went off the rails on me, which I then accused them of victim shaming and being part of the problem. Great fun to see them attack their own argument.
