  1. Do you have to contact them for them to apply the SCRA policy or is this done automatically once the loan is procured?
  2. Being in a similar situation years ago, I wish I would have gotten some guidance back then that would have saved me a lot of time in the process. With that said, I'd highly recommend guard or reserves over AD. Things worked out in the end and I'm a currently a reservist in pilot training. Best advice, Take advantage of TA and CLEP/DANTES exams to get your Associates Degree and CCAF Associates degree. many universities offer classes on base a couple of days a week. Go to the education office to look whats available at your Base. The exams are free to take the first time and they give you full college credits. Once the CCAF is complete, educate yourself on the AU-ABC program provided by the Air Force. In which you can transfer the full 60+ credits you have obtained through your AFSC and the classes you have already taken to a participant college/university to complete the bachelor's. (this would save you a lot of time in school) You can complete the bachelor's in less than the 3 years you have left and could possibly get your PPL in that time as well. By the time you separate, you can decide to either join a guard/reserve unit(or just get out completely) and start rushing/applying to units in locations you want to live, already meeting the basic qualifications. Good luck.
  3. As a guard/reservist, how long do your orders have to be for AMEX to waive the fees on their AMEX Platinum Card?
  4. Your understanding is correct. The only change is in how often the AFRC boards occur. Up until recent, only two boards were held per year. One in the summer and one in the winter. Now they are having a board every two months. Candidates will continue to require sponsorship by an unit or send their unsponsored application directly to the board via a recruiter.
  5. This is correct, and it can be frustrating since there is no guidance. But nothing worthwhile comes easy so don't let that discourage you. you can look on http://www.guardreservejobs.com/ to see available spots for guard and reserve. If don't see the unit that you would like to apply to on that site, then you will have to do the leg work of finding phone numbers for the squadrons and asking the chief pilot when will they be having their next board. Best advice I can give you is to go visit the units you are interested in and have some face time with as many people as possible. Good luck.
  6. Really good info. Here is the same file in PDF for those of you with windows computers. LOD.pdf
  7. The next AFRC board will be 5-6 Sept 2017. AFRC will then begin hosting UFT boards every other month (Sept, Nov, Jan, Mar, May July). UFT packages are due no later than close of business the final day of the month prior to each month a board is held.

    This is where I get them from, http://liquorliquidators.com/jeremiah-weed-100-proof-bourbon-whiskey-750.html Order a few at the time because shipping is expensive if you order a single bottle. Shipping was relatively quick too. Enjoy
  9. The reason he most likely he chose that route is because he did not find a fighter unit to sponsor him and he did not want to end up in a heavy as he was already a Nav.
  10. Congrats dude! See you at OTS/UPT.
  11. No intent to disrespect what happened. I was a response to a previous answer regarding doing a google search. But since that answer was deleted, my post is no longer relevant. I will delete mine as well.
