  1. Upcoming Boards

    It eventually got on Bogidope, but I found out about it through Facebook
  2. Upcoming Boards

    Notices for interviews went out last week no-go’s went out today
  3. Post-Select Pre-MEPS Process (ANG)

    The squeaky wheel gets the grease. Keep on him. I would reach out every week. If you are local, a face to face visit always helps too.
  4. How do you feel about your airframe and mission?

    That's quite a work load! Any comments on the reserve side from anyone?
  5. How do you feel about your airframe and mission?

    Any C-17 guys have any words for us?
  6. Upcoming Boards

    they just did their open house this past weekend. I would expect it to be sometime soon.
  7. Army to AF Transfer (Green to Blue)

    That's awesome. I look forward to sporting both wings once I get picked up by a unit.
  8. Army to AF Transfer (Green to Blue)

    I recently saw a picture of an Army pilot went green to blue. His name patch on his pickle suit had Army and Air Force Wings on it. Do they still allow this?
  9. The explanation I was given (from a guy who went through the course and passed) was it was almost like what you and I would think of an AQC....they assume you already know everything about helicopters...you are just going to learn how to fly that specific airframe. That was the biggest reason. A lot of guys who flew rotary wing all their lives were being put through a course without any basic instruction on fixed wing. It was a real baptism by fire, and some made it through just fine...but not enough for them to justify keeping the program alive.
  10. I would not expect it to be coming back due to the washout rate they experienced when the course was in place.
  11. WTF? (**NSFW**)

    I will respond with one reason to consider for removable magazines. Consider the home invasion scenario where you have multiple homes invaders with the intent to harm you and yours. The majority of malfunctions within a semi-automatic firearms tend to be the feeding device. A removable magazine is essential to you remedial actions when dealing with a malfunction in a gun fight. If Tap/Rack/Pull doesn't work, the next option is, drop the mag, clear the jam, insert new mag, go. Again, this is one reason to consider. I am sure there are many more reasons individuals can come up with. For me in my home, I always have multiple magazines loaded and ready to go for every self-defense firearm in my home.
  12. Track Selects and Assignment Nights

    Are Reserves typically pushed through pretty quick as well?
  13. Track Selects and Assignment Nights

    Is this an active duty specific thing? Do national guard get pushed through faster? I ask because this was the case at Army IERW. You would have guys waiting for months for their advanced course while the guard guys were turned around in a couple weeks.
  14. AF Form 8

    I am coming from another branch and am having trouble finding out what exactly a Form 8 is so I can provide the equivalent copies from the Army. Can anyone give me a description of what this form is used for?
  15. Details on Age Requirements

    sounds like a typical recruiter
