  1. That’s exactly why we’re using spice brown. God forbid we get mistaken for being the Army....ya know, after we shamelessly stole their uniform
  2. But hey, at least a little common sense broke out and they did the patch reverse on the OCPs rather than the bag!
  3. The Navy has been hanging all kinds of pods off the P-8. Seems like a logical alternative for us too.
  4. I really hate the age categories. The current Army test changes the age standards every four years, ie 18-21, 22-25, etc. It also counts push ups, sit-ups and the run equally.
  5. Buddy going up for his 1APZ board showed it to a couple of us. Didn’t see where it came from. My sq/cc said he’d seen the same thing, too.
  6. Saw an email that said for the upcoming O-5 board, it’s an 85% promotion opportunity.
  7. A step in the right direction! The CSO concept was good on paper, but the career field is far too diverse for a jack of all trades, master of none approach.
  8. "...some particularly outraged folks online said made them feel "unsafe." Yeah, welcome to the real world, there are bad guys out there. Geezus...Heaven forbid we ever have to fight WWIII, because with this PC, thin skinned, hipster latte swigging generation, we might as well just throw in the towel now.
  9. If I had any ambition to be a commander (which I did not) after the last couple of months it would be well and truly dead.
  10. We have to make it different, just for the sake of making it different.
  11. Just saw a new guidance memo, with parts effective 15 January 19...OCP patches authorized on the FDU. Color patches still authorized. The stupid part is that they’re writing the reg to make bag patch wear mirror the OCP set up. Get ready to wear your squadron patch on the left and and wing/WIC/TPS/flag on the right.
  12. Was told recently but have not confirmed that the age limit has been raised to 33. Don't think of it as a touchy subject. If you want it, go get it! It is a highly viable option. I have a couple of buddies right now, one who is 34 and who had eight years AD, in UPT with Guard units. You just have to find a unit that is willing to go to bat for you. Some units are willing to work waivers, while others are not. The trick, I think, is to find undermanned units and target them. Units in places like Charleston or Seattle have a line of applicants out the door and around the corner, but some place that's less desirable would probably be an easier road for you.
  13. News to me. I've known a couple of Navy pilot to AFRC pilot types, but that'd be a new one. You looking at active or Guard/Reserve?
