  1. https://www.mcclatchydc.com/news/nation-world/national/national-security/article247558165.html Interesting article on a congressional investigation into military aviation crashes. Summary of findings: - Do more with less due to Continuing Resolutions and Sequestration - Sims don’t replace hands on training - Admin has eaten into time that should be spent on training.

  2. Add in another satisfied customer. Reached out to Jon in Feb for a refinance and he was able to hook me up with a 2.875% rate. I know rates have gone up, but regardless of what they are hit up Trident whenever you are buying a home or thinking of refinancing. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Just closed with Jon at Trident (3.5% in UT). He was awesome from start to finish; I deployed when trying to close on one house and when the deal fell through, he took care of the cost of appraisal. On the second attempt, I was sent on a TDY that was going to cover the day I was supposed to close and Jon and Bri made sure this didn't impact the deal and minimized the pain even with the change in location. Jon and Bri were both quick to respond to any questions or requests and always had solutions to problems. It was great to work with someone who understands how the military can send you somep
  4. Just want to give a shout out to Jon and the team at Trident. They gave me a great interest rate and their service was top notch. Unfortunately, the closing was canceled because of shenanigans and not being forthcoming with information on the seller's side, but Jon offered to cover the cost of the appraisal so I would not have to pony up more cash on the failed endeavor. If you have an opportunity to work with the Trident team give them a call and they'll treat you like a bro.
  5. The plan right now is we start sending aircraft to the boneyard starting next year but continue to fly the JSTARS until 2025+, not sure on the number per year that will be retired though. As for the RECAP, it is yet again in limbo. Air Force wants to kill it but Congress was fighting to keep it going. Last RUMINT I heard though was a lot of the support RECAP was getting from Congress was lost when they announced ABMS would be put at Robins.
  6. Anyone here have experience with the Chase Sapphire Reserve credit card. They advertise 100,000 bonus points if you spend $4000 in the first 3 months, 3x points on travel and restaurants, and $300 annual travel credit. The annual fee is $495 but I was wondering if anyone knew if they offered a similar deal to AMEX by waiving fees to Active Duty individuals?
  7. With the TDY unit out to RODN, thanks to the 18th Wing for all the support they have provided us and a big thanks to the 33rd Rescue Sq and their help in bringing our brothers home.
  8. Saw this on John Q Public's fb this morning, anyone out there more important than me that can vouch for this?
  9. Just started getting the message today on my Mac using Safari.
  10. Surprised to say that Kick Ass 2 was pretty good and pretty damn funny. Never seen (or even heard of the original) Kick Ass but they did a good filling in the gaps I might have missed not seeing the first one.
  11. Just closed yesterday with Dave Devine, all the reviews above about him and NBOKC are spot on. He always returned my calls/emails and got answers to my questions when they popped up. Dave got me a great deal of 30 years for 3.25%. Couldn't be more impressed with the customer service offered by him and NBOKC. Highly recommend him to anyone looking at getting a mortgage.
