    AF Light Air Support Aircraft

    I fully expect the light attack will be this. But with a ball, and armed.
  2. To him. We have too few heroes in this world that deserve looking up to. He was one. https://www.airforcetimes.com/news/your-air-force/2019/01/14/air-force-legend-medal-of-honor-recipient-joe-jackson-dies-at-95/

    What's wrong with the Air Force?

    Not all weapons create kinetic effects.

    A few other gems from the article to consider. AETC seems to be working hard to keep the retention crisis going. Interesting that the investigators did these focus discussion groups with people that did not have first-hand knowledge. It makes me question what they were trying to prove. Out of? This statement is completely meaningless without a denominator. And this one made me laugh... Especially after this post on TPN a few days ago

    The article never said what happened to the jogger. Did he ever get his motrin?

    But we paid millions of dollars to use those licensed terms...that work so well on college campuses.

    Isn't the point of retirement that nothing is time critical?

    Finance Problems

    Different colors of money. I imagine kickbacks can be spent without congressional oversight.

    New BAH rates are out.

    Huge increase in Pensacola. Big drop for Eglin. Amazing how different market conditions can be on either side of Hurlburt.

    Exception to Policy

    I was in your same boat in 2004. I didn't take a $72K bonus as a SrA so I could preserve my options. Instead I applied to OTS during a time when AD selection rates were around 5%. I have no regrets. I've still never taken a bonus, and I still have no regrets. Everything has an opportunity cost, and I chose to 'spend' those lost bonus dollars on freedom of maneuver.

    Chang deux. I know the last round was a troll, and well done. I expect this one is too. If this attitude becomes pervasive among our combat corps, we won't survive the next shooting war, and these things won't matter.
  12. When you go to the commissary on the first and fifteenth of every month, the SF Airman at the gate will say 'good morning major' instead of colonel.
  13. So, now the base is making quality of life worse for the dairy owners? Please, someone say to the dairies, "if you don't like it, you can leave."
