    Palace Chase info

    I heard that either once enrolled in TAPs a year out from DOS, or finished the capstone you can’t be on ced orders? You can still do normal TDY’s, just can’t be on CED orders. Any truth to this, and if so where is it in the black and white?

    What the hell is going on with the SEALs?

    Maybe Green dot is working for them. Or those guys get help, or they are way better at hiding it.

    What's wrong with the Air Force?

    So that’s the reason why the pacaf commander and amc commander got picked not because of their merits? Diversity.

    Stocks for Dummies (Aviators)

    What’s the opinion on target date mutual funds? I.e. vanguard target date retirement fund? Vs spreading that out over other mutual funds investments? Specifically, only Roth IRA contributions, Not other 401k, IRA spread out over growth, international, ETF’s etc. you can insert any other company for vanguard, although from my public school education vanguard has been one of the best.

    11-217: should it stay or go?

    That’s your answer why it needs to be dropped. We put too much red tape on everything.

    11-217: should it stay or go?

    Yes get rid of it. Why not just use the AIM and FAA books like the instrument procedures book etc that are maintained by someone else.

    Promotion and PRF Information

    https://www.jqpublicblog.com/air-force-eliminates-school-selection-o-4-promotion-boards/ While I am absolutely confident this is the right decision, I am equally confident a good portion of our officer corps will be skeptical. Given all the turmoil and instability of the past several years, trust in senior leadership on these issues is not high. Sent from my iPad using Baseops Network Forums
