    Questions on the GI Bill (Tuition Aid)

    DoD is capping gi bill transfers at 16 years. If you're going to do it, do it now. https://www.defense.gov/News/Article/Article/1573240/dod-announces-policy-change-on-transfer-of-post-911-gi-bill-benefits/

    BLUE: Episode 25 Pilot Pipeline

    Sure. Give pre-commissioning studs a google cardboard and some 360 youtube videos with pilots doing normal stuff. Highlight the crosscheck where the pilot's looking. Cheap fam, gives context, and teaches good habits early.
  3. I'm not sure it has much to do with security clearances. Here's what TSA says the partnership is for. https://homeland.house.gov/files/Testimony Rosenblum.pdf

    Not the first time, nor likely the last, a caffeinated beverage has caused significant electronic systems damage to a military aircraft.

    What is right with the Air Force

    A few years ago, I was TDY to Holloman. The wg/cc spot at the commissary had a maternity parking sign covering the wg/cc sign. Personally observed the wg/cc park in the back and walk. Much respect.

    Economically, population growth is greatly preferable to population decline.

    The Next President is...

    I think he's cautioning her against the legal consequences of encouraging mob violence should her followers follow her prompting. Or, it could be a reminder that this is an election year, and the political ramifications of people following her advice could negatively affect her chances.
  10. PRFs should have four lines for the senior rater to fill out. 1. This candidate meets all eligibility requirements for promotion. YES/NO (no requires mandatory comment) 2. I have reviewed this candidates record and found no derogatory information. YES/NO (no is mandatory comment) 3. Strat. My #______/________ for this board. 4. DP/P/DNP Everything else the PRF communicates is already captured in the promotion record.

    Space Force

    Yes, it passed in the house in 2017 but died in the Senate due to AF opposition at the time. https://www.congress.gov/bill/115th-congress/house-bill/2810/text/eh#toc-HD6CAA416CAF74D1B9DE4FC89CF24A69F Text below of what passed. Based on today's announcement of it being organized similarly to the Marines relationship with Navy, I'd expect it to be similar to what passed previously ----------------------------------- Establishment.—Not later than January 1, 2019, the Secretary of Defense shall establish in the executive part of the Department of the Air Force a Space Corps. The function of the Space Corps shall be to assist the Secretary of the Air Force in carrying out the duties described in subsection Composition.—The Space Corps shall be composed of the following: The Chief of Staff of the Space Corps. Such other offices and officials as may be established by law or as the Secretary of the Air Force, in consultation with the Chief of Staff of the Space Corps, may establish or designate. Duties.—Except as otherwise specifically prescribed by law, the Space Corps shall be organized in such manner, and the members of the Space Corps shall perform, such duties and have such titles, as the Secretary may prescribe. Such duties shall include— (1) protecting the interests of the United States in space; (2) deterring aggression in, from, and through space; (3) providing combat-ready space forces that enable the commanders of the combatant commands to fight and win wars; (4) organizing, training, and equipping space forces; and (5) conducting space operations of the Space Corps under the command of the Commander of the United States Space Command.
