    Commanders are dropping like flies this year

    Damn shame. Wg/cc was/is a great individual. Sad to see things end on this note for him.

    Car loans and interest rates

    GD dave ramsey. Best and worst thing to happen to personal finance talking points in recent memory. Like dude.. we get it, dave said debt is bad.. you don't need to continue berating the entire room with what you heard dave say on his sunday morning talk show. JFC. Whoever asked about best rates - Navy Fed, Pen Fed, nearest CU, or ask the dealer what their best rate is. Personally, I hope we're nearing the horizon of the next slowdown.. it may not be for a while yet, but the 10+ year bull market has kept prices of some luxury items I want artificially high. A good recession would clobber some people who shouldn't have bought them and prices will come down.

    How big a deal is that waiver? I'm guessing if a unit really wants you it makes the waiver less of an issue..

    All true, and I agree. I mention some of that queep for context, not because i thought combat time was going to get me picked up for anything. I got senior rater (Gp/CC and wg/cc) strats, as either #1 or #2 joint officer the last 3 years leading up to my IPZ PRF. Apparently something else on my PRF read like a steaming pile of dogsh1t, though. Anyhow, no one GAF. just throwing it out there for anyone curious.

    Sounds like lots of us are in the same boat. I've had consistent strats since my 2nd OPR, several yearly's, 3 FGOQs up to the 2-star level, 2x DG , was an evaluator, 1500 combat hrs, never bought a checkride downgrade and no PFT busts. I honestly thought I was squarely in the middle of the bell curve. I guess I can GTFO, though.. which I will gladly do.

    second the the motion. must be a side effect of sitting within earshot of a civilian who stutters badly and tries to talk over people. his voice will forever haunt me.

    Take it FWIW.. my last two sq/ccs were 2bpz. Both 11Ms, 1 was a WIC guy, went straight to 4-star aid as a capt, then school, Jt staff, sq/cc. The other catapulted to wing exec as a mid-capt, off to acsc, sq/do, saass, jt staff, sq/cc. they are both btz to O6 as well. I'm sure a sprinkling of DGs and certainly #1/(insert largest number the SR can strat them against) highlight each line on their PRFs.

    Finance Problems

    Anyone deploy with conflicting statements on their orders regarding per diem? I've got "Government meals available and directed" (standard, as per every set of orders I've ever received) and Line Remark "WBM - Member Authorized Full Rate per diem." I will be lodged on base so I honestly think I should get the on-base rate, but if my remarks say i'm authorized full rate i'll be damned if I don't try to get it.

    What's wrong with the Air Force?

    Yea.. Gen Holmes is pretty far detached from most of us. He's a dyed in the wool military dude who doesn't compute that not everyone wants what he has. In Jan '18, I heard him try to convince a bunch of WIC dudes to stay in with the reasoning that they would get great experiences on 365 deployments that they wouldn't otherwise get...
