  1. I’m all for taking a critical look at the training pipeline, but let’s take a step back from the ‘jump to conclusions’ game and see what the actual causes are of this rash of fighter accidents. Mechanical failure, maintenance practices, weather, human factors, or training could all be possible factors. Let’s give the investigating teams time to do their job and then address their findings with the proper focus and effort.
  2. The time to experience savings of six months is interesting, but not the main benefit. BTW - did anyone else notice that the time to experience chart used 4FL as the metric under the current system and 2FL under the proposed T-X system? A bit of an apples-to-oranges comparison. There is basically no savings in the time to experience when you look at the time to be a 4FL. The time to create an MR wingman is also longer under the proposed T-X system. The real benefits from the proposed T-X system are: repurpose some FTU jets to be CC-coded due to lower training bill (increase sq PAA or increa
  3. I called USAA and they stated the Limitless Card wasn't available in my area (NW Florida) yet. They were unable to provide an estimated timeline. So, no card for me...
  4. Copy all. I searched the USAA site and no luck. Apparently I'm not a part of the Limitless club. I'll give them a call next week. Thanks for the help!
  5. I can't seem to find the USAA Limitless Card on their website. I read on another website that the USAA Limitless Card was released in Fall 2016 to a small sample group on a trial basis. Seems like a good deal that I'd like to take advantage of. For those that have it, how did you get it?
  6. Andrews has one as well. Call to schedule: DSN 857-4654 or Commercial (240) 857-4654
  7. I think what personal finances really come down to is your approach toward money. Meaning some people have no idea where their money is being spent, which is why David Ramsey is popular with some people (personally I never heard of David Ramsey until a couple months ago). He offers a very simple, common sense approach to making a budget and spending only cash to ensure you know how ever dollar is spent. This can help some people develop a solid understanding of where their cash is actually going. For others, he is far too basic as they have moved well beyond his baby step system. I'v
  8. Single source income. Just hit the 14-yr mark. I am a pilot and currently on the bonus (annual gross approx $155k), but we've been investing 30% +/- of my gross for a few years now. I think one year the investments got as high as 40% gross. We realized that was a bit extreme and backed off a little. No debt of any type. Being financially secure is a great feeling! Really appreciate all of the great financial advice and perspective everyone brings to this site.
  9. One data point: we've been investing roughly 30% of my gross income for the last several years. Start by maxing out two Roth IRAs and the TSP. On top of that we put $500/month in a 529 and invest another $1k/month in a variety of stocks and mutual funds. Goal is to stop working by 55 and pay for the kids college. So far we're on track...
