  2. I was never more ashamed of being a member of the Air Force than the day I heard that news. As for Flash’s case, I’m wondering what was done to help him while all of this craziness was going on with his wife. He was at Creech for an extremely long time, maybe PCS orders and some one-on-one counseling about the benefits of leaving said stripper behind in Vegas could have helped. The best thing to do for all involved would be to learn from it and better heed the warning signs in the future. It’s just plain sad. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Flash was on my combat team at Creech several years ago, we were named together. He was always kind of a goofball, but I would have never expected something like this. I can definitely say I’m glad I wasn’t young and single when I was sent to Vegas to kill people for a living, who knows how I would have handled it. Whether he actually did what he was convicted of or not, his life definitely took a dark turn the past few years. I’m shocked to say the least. He walked into his naming stripped down and wearing a toga, Roman helmet, and carrying the Spartan shield and spear. It was pretty hilarious. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. HarleyQuinn? Or whatever your name was, is that you? Sure seems very similar... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. My In Service Recruiter said I could not have a set date of separation while applying for Palace Chase. I wanted to hedge my bets same as you, to avoid a 180. So you’ll have to choose one or the other, I believe. Also the built up leave probably won’t protect you because they’ll just make you sell it back instead of letting you take it as terminal. So you can roll the dice with PC and maybe be out in June and have terminal prior to that. Or you can set a separation date for December which might buy you an even earlier 180 day to meet the timeline. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. You can’t 7 day opt a 180. However, having a PC application already pending may deflect it to someone else in the Ops Group. In the MAF, the 180s were handed down by the OG. If you get approved while on said deployment, they would have to task someone else. AFI 36-3205 has a restriction against sending applicants TDY without coordinating with AFPC/DPSOS (1.4.13), however it does not apply to aircrew members. I’m not sure if that would include 180 day ground deployments. My belief is that is to allow a crew member to be sent on short term missions while awaiting application (makes sense). However, you can bet someone will use that to their advantage and still try to send you on a deployment. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  8. Too bad only those who would never go postal on their co-workers and/or stage an attack on Offutt will follow his rules. This gutless “leadership” is why I left AD at the earliest opportunity. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. A toast. [emoji481] I also would like information on scholarship donations for the kids when able. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I have done this before as well with TX-1 at Holloman. We packed essentials and lived in base housing during the TDY and it was unaccompanied. Big Blue expects you to leave your family at your current duty station and have your wife manage kids and the entire move process solo. Hopefully you don’t get a dick at finance like the QA civilian I dealt with. It took 6 months to be paid correctly because she argued I didn’t receive any lodging or perdiem for the TDY because I was “staying with family.” Your other issue will be having your temporary HHG storage extended, I was able to do it twice with just an email.

  11. Near peer preparation has driven more currency items to the jet. More tactical sorties and flights in chem gear. If AMC asked for IPs back to finish the training, what aircraft would they fly? We didn’t even have enough to fill the current required training sorties to keep the squadron current and get all the beans finished each semi. There is definitely no excess training capacity for UPT phase 3 or 4, or whatever you would want to call it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. On my installation in the TXANG, all of the buildings have No Firearms signs posted on the doors. I wasn’t even aware that we could carry on base until I saw the post a few above this one. Now I know why those signs exist. What good does the freedom to carry do for us if we can’t bring them into the buildings? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. So we have RPA operations all over the globe, why not open a few additional LREs outside of Afghanistan to keep a lid on the cesspool? We used Uzbekistan prior to 9/11, but I’m not sure how helpful the Pakis will be at this point. We just “withdrew” from Syria, yet we are targeting guys there today. There’s no reason why we can’t support the government of Afghanistan in the same way by playing whack a mole with the inevitable shitheads that will try to take over the country. It’s not a perfect solution, but lying to the American public for 20 years for no gain has to stop. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  15. The only reg I cited was the leave reg. Both Finance and my SQ/CC had no issue with me using the 20 days. I think it’s kind of a norm like how you are given your house hunting after signing in while PCSing even if you have a place already (happened at every base I was stationed). As for the moving early, that would be on your dime completely. TMO won’t do anything without orders, and even weight tickets that pre-date your briefing won’t be paid. If there’s family close by you could move just them with bare essentials to stay with family until you can get HHGs shipped. We paid double mortgage for a month because we had to close prior to being able to move. The house sat empty for 5 weeks before we moved in. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
