    What's wrong with the Air Force?

    Palace Chase info

    I’m curious what ADSC you have to separate early from when you’ve been thinking about PC for 14 years... I’m about to be in the same boat, paperwork will be submitted in the next few weeks. I’m only looking for 3 months off of a PCS ADSC. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Flying Videos Thread Part 2?

    He sounds like he was a great guy. https://airforce.togetherweserved.com/usaf/servlet/tws.webapp.WebApp?cmd=ShadowBoxProfile&type=Person&ID=177012 Great movie, I sure wish the Air Force was still that way. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Congratulations for making it to 20, I applaud you for that. I was gonna give you crap for talking about service if you left prior to retirement...there goes that idea. I too plan to retire, however from the guard with a little more control over my last 8 years of service. Not that those who choose to leave at the end of their ADSC deserve any less credit, at least they raised their right hand and chose to serve in an all volunteer force when most do not. We’ve discussed ad nauseam on here about how difficult it is to keep people on active duty with feckless leadership, less compelling financial incentives, and difficulties of military life on families. I don’t fault anyone for leaving, and I’m grateful for whatever time they did serve. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Honest question, did you retire or separate prior to 20? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I was just a kid back during Gulf I, but I remember during OIF in 2003 that Saddam was the head of the Iraqi military and thus a legitimate target. I mean, the guy paraded around in military uniform quite a bit. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. When someone in my squadron with a STRD one year prior to mine had to 3 day opt a 365, the threat became very real. That’s why I won’t accept any kind of ADSC and will be jumping ship at the first opportunity. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    It's Official, OCPs are Coming!

  10. If that’s the case, run. 300 days in 18 months, no thanks. Edit: Sorry for the thread derail, let’s get back to talking about the non-existent bonus program. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Any chance of a 365 is too much of a chance. As I’ve said before, dudes are tired and asking us to continue the same mindless strategy for another 17 years with no end in sight is why we are leaving. Pointless Air Advisor deployments where you’re only needed at work 3 days per week, the above non-flying SE gigs, then flying deployments with broken airplanes and not much flying. I’d rather be at home watching my kids grow up. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    F-15X on the Air Force's Budget Request

    I took it to mean it would be the beginnings of replacing C/D models which are mostly flown by the guard. We don’t really need F-22s doing the air sovereignty mission and new airframes would cut maintenance costs which is an argument made in the article. This idea is not coming from Air Force leadership, which makes me like it more.

    Retirement / Separation Considerations

    You state your vulnerability runs from 8 months to 2 months prior to your ADSC. I would say to establish a DOS at 8.5 months out and roll the dice they won’t try to send you and get you back 30 days prior to your DOS. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Retirement / Separation Considerations

    Is this true with a deployment less than a 365? I understood that until you establish a separation date you can still be tasked with something that would extend past your ADSC. A 365 however, can be 3 day opted. But we (as officers) have an Indefinite separation date until we raise our hand and say we want to quit. Am I totally wrong? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Finance Problems

    Leave it to the government to give us all a travel card that charges fees for foreign currency conversion. Isn’t the point of a travel card to avoid fees like that? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
