  1. Had 3 interviews and I asked the same question in all before each one. For all three I just had to knock an come in. Maybe the heavy guys I was interviewing w were somewhat relaxed. No one told me to come in, salute and say reporting as order sir/ma’am... is it just an army thing? Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  2. Anybody else waiting for FY20 UPT dates to drop on the Guard side?
  3. Is Chuck broke or does he really have a case against Airbus? https://www.theglobeandmail.com/business/international-business/article-the-wrong-stuff-chuck-yeager-who-broke-sound-barrier-sues-airbus/?fbclid=IwAR1nqqAaKdOr09sYfypdvv-tK7ccHkyFUjl6D3UihDDOSHdtnWeg2CokfzU
  4. your a young dude. Just keep showing up to UTAs and take every opportunity to stop by the squadron to say hello. Put your name out there. Don't be a tool and bring gifts (booze preferably). If all of the pilots are busy, don't be afraid to wonder over to the crew dawgs and wrench turners to chat with them. Their job is just as important. For one of the units that I was rushing for, I brought booze for the squadron bar and chick-fil-a for the crew dawgs. cheers
  5. Just finished reading "The Dream Machine" by Richard Whittle. Covers the development, marketing, and integration of the V-22. Provides an interesting look at a machine that could still revolutionize air travel....
  6. Perhaps you can try to get her fired from the military like that one marine that said "screw obama" a few years ago... next thing the poor fella is apologizing and getting kicked out of out of the military. We have a few folks holding office in our state, but I never hear about them mixing the military with their political views or agendas. Or perhaps I haven't been involved enough to experience senior officers unable to draw a line between military duty and political preference. If Generals can do it... then why not lower rank individuals. At the democrats' convention, Marine Corps Gen. John Allen, loved by all devil dogs out there, offered a thinly veiled swipe at Donald Trump. "I know that with HC as commander in chief, our international relations and foreign policy will not be reduced to a business transaction or deal" But my personal favorite was at the Republican convention. Army Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn joined the crowd's chants to arrest Hillary Clinton. "Lock her up, that's right," Flynn said. "Yeah, that's right, lock her up". I believe that our nation's soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines should not have to wonder about the political leanings and motivations of their leaders. But I guess in a non-military status, everyone is entitle to their own opinion.
  7. You shouldn't have any issues getting hired by a heavy unit. Might not be as competitive for fighters. If you aren't set on a specific location or aircraft, reach out to the bogidope.com guys to help you put together a solid resume and cover letters to cast a wide net. Good Luck. Cheers!
  8. The process is long. Its never to early make an introduction and express your interest in a military flying career. Even if you aren't ready, just talking to squadron folks will give you an idea of the type of community and aircraft you could see yourself in. Also, the more you can show up to UTAs and meet and greets, the more the squadron bros will get to learn about you. Hopefully, they'll think your a "cool" guy. Don't be a tool or a dbag when visiting squadrons. 9 times out of 10 when cold calling ppl, they will be more than happy to talk to you about squadron life or point you to proper person to talk to. Good Luck. Cheers
  9. https://www.foxnews.com/opinion/sen-lindsey-graham-abandoning-afghanistan-would-pave-way-for-another-9-11 According to Trump, peace talks are dead. I never thought that making a deal with the Taliban would be the answer to the "how to leave Afghanistan" question. I don't necessary agree with the above article on how abandoning all hope would pave the way for another 9-11. Interested in what anybody else on here thinks or has to say.
  10. Being a sponge didn't take me very far at Rucker... "you can only have X number of penguins on an iceberg. One jumps on, another jumps off"
  11. I had a 2.6 GPA Civil Engineering. In all the interviews I have done (both military and civilian), no one has asked me about why it was too low. I think for the most part, when applying to ANG slots, they just want to have a degree. As far as which one is used, they will input the highest one. Also, I never rushed fighters so their exceptions of a high GPA might be different.
  12. Do all syllabus tracks get the same amount of T-6 solo hours? Only 3 hours seems to be a extremely low. If that is the case, it might be more of a "check in the box" ... "you did it, now move on to the next box" which brings no real benefit in my opinion. But hey, my opinion might not mean anything. I am a nobody Army helo guy UPT bound.
