  1. Please let the ones headed to Kirtland know that they’ll be MC-J and not on the Chariot of Armageddon. They get trained exclusively at HRT if they’re headed that direction.
  2. I’d say your odds are pretty decent for 1 below. Ours went up blank with a “P” if leadership didn’t feel we had a chance, so if yours went up filled out and with a “DP” you’re not wrong in being “cautiously optimistic”. Plus, unless there’s a big shake-up (regime change, UIF, etc) before your IPZ package is submitted, you should still get a solid push in the zone as well.
  3. Blue thread? Sure, that sounds good! Green nametapes like some flavors of DCU had? Nahh...
  4. Sounds like cooler heads prevailed in what could’ve gotten ugly.
  5. “III MEF Marines”released on FB that the second Marine found had passed. Still no other news, but it sounds like everyone who can get there is out looking. Here’s hoping for a Christmas miracle.
  6. https://www.armytimes.com/news/your-army/2018/09/05/the-army-is-making-progress-on-fixing-its-pilot-shortage-so-its-turning-the-focus-on-maintainers/ Interesting “atmospherics” from our Army aviation counterparts. “So, we are short pilots, just candidly speaking,” he said. “I mean, we are under our authorization for aviators, most predominantly seen in the AH-64community.” For the past year and a half, flight school has upped the number of training spots to meet the shortfall, he said But, he added, “you can’t fill the void with just accessions because then six, eight years later you would have a relatively inexperienced force.” So the Army can see the problem with producing away the shortfall... huh.
  7. I applaud your nerd-ness good sir. Dilly dilly!
  8. For their reading/educational pleasure. https://www.aircommando.org/sites/journal/ACJ Vol 6 Issue 2 Allied Force Sep 2017.pdf
  9. Nope... the rumors have once again died. They should start again in around 36 months or so though based on past trends.
  10. Beginning all the way back in T-44’s, “working engine, working foot” and “raise the dead”. Standard Herk stuff, the read was very depressing.
  11. More delays? Say it ain't so... another '05 purge survivor here.
  12. Money for MWR and WG/CC’s being willing to accept risk... even a little bit, is in short supply these days. We have one, but it’s cheaper to rent on the economy.
