  1. When I revealed buffoonery in my past, the main question was whether or not someone could use it against me to, say, influence me to reveal secrets or whatever. In my case, I had been pretty open about it to folks, so it wasn't a deep dark secret I was trying to hide; my answer was "No," and that seemed to be satisfactory.
  2. Problem solved on the pilot shortage.
  3. What's wrong with the Air Force?

    I think he was responding to a post I made in another forum following up on the F-16 crash in DC back in April. Somehow ended up in the wrong forum.
  4. What's wrong with the Air Force?

    Per the reg (AFI 36-2905), paragraphs 2.25.8 and 9, which have to do with being current when PCSing and also having a 42 day acclimation period following extended (>30 days) TDY, fall under the responsibility of your unit/squadron commander. This person shouldn't get a say in it if your commander is good with it. There's also nothing in AFI 36-2905 (Assignments) saying that you have to do this...in fact paragraph says being out of standards does not affect your assignment, in and of itself.
  5. Viper down in DC

    Follow up article to the initial thread topic. https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/air-force-loses-dollar22m-f-16-due-to-engine-assembly-error/ar-AAu6jQE?li=BBmkt5R&ocid=spartanntp
  6. What's wrong with the Air Force?

    Not sure why this should be limited to bag wearers...shoe clerks shouldn't have to be at the whim of...other shoe clerks either.
  7. This article is interesting in regards to the B-52 alert. If STRATCOM's not ordering it, then why is the AF implementing it? Kind of leads you to think it's some sort of posturing.
  8. Leadership at the 'Deid

    Not really an option. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-kyrgyzstan-usa-manas/u-s-vacates-base-in-central-asia-as-russias-clout-rises-idUSKBN0EE1LH20140603
  9. My understanding of the force management world tells me that moving something to AFSOC does not automatically and immediately place it under SOCOM's authority (e.g., B-1s are in AFGSC, but aren't directly owned by STRATCOM). I could be mistaken or have old info, though. It seems like that would introduce a little bit of complexity that AFSOC would have to deal with.
  10. North Korea at it again

    I don't know how mutual it would really be.
  11. Non-Availibility lodging/letter

    Per AF lodging policy, not having pet-friendly TLFs doesn't make them inadequate...AFI 34-135, paragraph 1.19.6. As far as space being "adequate," paragraph 3.3.3 says, "Lodging assigns families to [Civilian Lodging] on a voluntary basis when TLFs are fully occupied or adequate space is not available (lodging manager will determine if VQ space is suitable..." So, that's the AFI for what it's worth. I'm not a fan that the lodging manager has the authority to determine the adequacy of their own space since their operation is funded by your per diem dollars...seems shady. However, convincing the lodging manager (or his/her boss, or boss's boss, or IG, etc) that the space is not adequate is up to you and your leadership.
  12. LICW TDY

    Do a constructed travel worksheet to show that it saves the government money. Perhaps the underlying issue is appearing to use the city pair discounts to do leave travel.
  13. Absolutely. But the GS-6 didn't tell the commander no...he/she told some random person on the phone the current interpretation of current policy as they had been directed.
  14. I wouldn't call the person a rogue...this is a new policy that old procedures haven't caught up with. GS-6s follow the procedures they're given. I wouldn't expect one to just look at a policy memo (even from the CSAF) and then selectively interpret how to implement it. Someone owes that person better guidance and instruction. In any case, your SR and MLR will have a more authoritative take on implementation.
  15. Finance Problems

    That SrA is just trying to do his/her job...blame the leadership who won't/can't streamline this process. This should be as simple as scanning orders and your ID card when you show up on-base. Any further details can be provided by your unit during their daily personnel report. Your orders have enough info that they can determine your gaining unit, your accountability/vRED info. It's a travesty, and I bet some of those young Airmen would love to figure out how to improve the system (maybe I'm optimistic). However, the SNCOs/officers who came of age in the MPF/Finance dumpster fires are so entrenched in the system that they quash any innovation.
