  1. So what exactly does that guy want? There isn’t much the current generation can do for sins committed hundreds of years ago. I’m thinking he and those that think like him should move somewhere else and start their own country because they clearly have zero desire to be a part of this one. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  3. I guarantee they will find another reason to uphold it next time. The Supreme Court has gotten out of hand. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I did something similar. With TDY en-route, you will still be receiving BAH based on your losing base location since it is unaccompanied. Check BAH rates for both locations, because when you check into the gaining base the BAH rate will change. If it’s significantly less than the old base, you might have to come out of pocket. However, finance can adjust the BAH based on dependent location. Your living expenses as a geo-bachelor will be all out of pocket. Be sure to keep your new unit informed of your plan, you will have to take leave to get the family moved whenever it is time. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Pilot or bust. When I applied to OTS, the Air Force was producing far fewer pilots annually. I was told by the first recruiter that I wouldn’t be looked at for a pilot slot with less than 200 hours and multiple civilian ratings. When I finally was able to submit my package to the board, I only put pilot. I was told the same line about the selection board valuing me being willing to do other jobs, but I wasn’t buying it. I got selected for pilot on my first board with only 30 flight hours and I got the chance to live my dream. I had to put up with a lot on active duty, but the years I spent hacking the mission with some of the greatest people you’ll ever know will always be some of the best of my life. The Air Force is much more in need of pilots today than when I was selected. Go for it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Thanks for sharing these words. Too often we see losses of our brothers on here and except for the few that know them personally we don’t get to hear much about their lives or stories. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  8. Your separation orders should specify. Mine showed my ANG unit as the gaining unit and I was given 7 days to get there. Technically I guess that means I could have sworn in 7 days after separation, but I moved while on terminal so I swore in immediately after. I would ask the question to a personnellist just to avoid a break in service. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Shack. The ADSC was the death knell. Nobody who is interested in this program wants to be on the hook for that long, or at all. That guarantees you a 365. As for the pay issue, Over 6 year flight pay in 1990 was $650, it’s currently $700. Adjusted for inflation it should be $1,282 per month. The AF can pay $800 in flight pay for Over 6, and $1000 for Over 10 but they refuse. I’m not saying it’s all about the money, but erosion of these benefits over time has an effect on retention. I didn’t even mention BAH value cuts. Fixing issues like this and allowing guys to stay on a ‘fly-only’ track that preserves their ability to make decisions about their future might get them to stay for an additional assignment or two.

  10. The implementation of the PTDY rules are fuzzy. How many times have you checked into a new unit after PCS and been given the 10 days PTDY for house hunting even if you already had a house? For me it was every single assignment. I had zero issues asking for the 20 days for separation, and my CC was happy to approve it as long as I cited that rule in the reg.

  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. HarleyQuinn? Or whatever your name was, is that you? Sure seems very similar... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. 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
