    Just watched Hostiles on Netflix. Quite good if you like westerns. Kind of a shorter Dances with Wolves. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Active retirement in ARC

    From my previous investigation into this, I thought it would be based on the full base pay rate of your last 3 years. The definition below seems to support that, so as Loach said why would they not take his High 3 from when he was on active orders? High-36 Plan The retired pay base for a qualified reserve retirement under the High-36 retirement plan is the total amount of monthly basic pay to which the member was entitled during the member's high-36 months divided by 36. This includes months to which the member would have been entitled if the member had served on active duty during the entire period. Usually this will be the average of the 36 months for the member's pay grade and years of service taken from the pay tables in effect for the 36 months immediately preceding the date that retired pay begins, regardless of when the member stopped participation (i.e. went into the gray area). The High-36 retirement plan uses a multiplier % that is the same as the final pay plan. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Active retirement in ARC

    So how exactly is the High 3 calculated? It sounds like Loach is saying they chose to not use the time he was active even though it was the highest paying. I thought it was just the average of the full-time base pay rate of your last 3 years of service. Do they actually base retirement pay on what you’re actually paid those last 3 years of guard reserve? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Promotion and PRF Information

    Damn pawnman, if you didn’t get a DP with that record I definitely don’t stand a chance. Being a MAF/RPA/MAF reject, I wonder why my SQ/CC and others are trying to convince dudes like me to stay in. If I did, it would just be a few more years before I’m passed over twice and deciding between continuation or separation. So why not make that decision now, move back to where I can spend time with my extended family, and get on with the rest of my life? Other things I hear are that 06-07 guys are all but guaranteed O-6 if they just stay active duty. Somehow I don’t believe that. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    What’s the planned buy of the T-X scheduled to be? It would be better to just go back to generalized UPT and I hope we are able to do that in the future. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    The Fed really has no choice at this point. We couldn’t stay at interest rates of zero for forever. As for the “pipe bombs” it sure seems real convenient, huh? None exploded, and some were possibly not even capable of detonation. And they’re all sent to people the President has been critical of. I’m not surprised by anything I see these days.

    This has a lot to do with the hoax mail bomb scare and the Fed insisting they will continue to raise interest rates. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  11. I can’t believe they eliminated ADSCs for PIT and cross flow. Whatever we did to make that happen, let’s do the same for a 150k/yr bonus. Then they might get a few people to stay. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Retirement / Separation Considerations

    Is it worth it to make O-5 in the guard/reserve? An extra couple hundred a month seems like it would be worth a few tests and BS papers. I still haven’t been able to motivate myself to complete the second module. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Hurricane Michael

    I’m glad someone mentioned this. There are tunnels in coastal cities all over the US, even with the high water table. Houston has no tunnels, but has underground walkways downtown. The issue would be controlling the flooding from a storm surge, but I’m sure that can be figured out... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Or maybe just do the maintenance somewhere else during hurricane season... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Hurricane Michael

    No one is arguing that these jets take a lot of maintenance or that this is the reality for tactical jets. But saying “this is how it’s always been done, sorry we weren’t able to hurrivac 10% of our nation’s premiere 5th gen aircraft” and going on business as usual can’t continue. Maybe it’s not such a smart thing to have aircraft disassembled in phase checks on the Florida panhandle during hurricane season. When you purchase a fraction of the fleet size needed, you can’t treat these aircraft like every other fighter fleet. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
