    What's wrong with the Air Force?

    I'm glad some bases have it good. My biggest complaint would be when medical information or referrals need to be faxed. "We faxed it sir, guess they never received it." How hard is it to fax, then call to ensure the paperwork was received? I don't understand why this is so hard. Don't even get me started on the doc who thought a cyst was a pimple and tried to pop it. Thus causing an infection and a ton of pain. My dermatologist just shook his head. He used to be a flight doc back in the day. Returned from a TDY with a knot on my arm. Called flight medicine. Can't see you for a week. Went to see my dermatologist and he was like WTF? This could have been an infection and killed you. Look at the size of the knot. I just shrugged my shoulders... flight medicine said...

    What's wrong with the Air Force?

    Basically, I've seen specialists off base who disagree with our flight doctors. I've seen this happen 3 times now and I have lost a little faith in flight medicine. I have seen doctors and specialists off base completely disagree with flight doctors. Pretty sure I'm not the only one here. I had surgery a few years ago. My surgeon called flight medicine to ensure the pharmacy would have my post op meds. Immediately after my surgery, I had my girlfriend drive me to the base in order to pickup my paperwork for quarters. I waited 2 hours and still didn't receive my meds. I told the airman at the pharmacy counter twice I was post op and the gauze was pretty easily to see on my neck. I fell asleep and still didn't have my meds so I went off base and had the prescription filled in 15 minutes. I was totally embarrassed in front of my girlfriend because she receives the best care through her company's insurance plan. Also, I was told someone at the pharmacy walked off the job that week creating total chaos. A CC I spoke with said this is becoming standard and I'm not the first so I just accepted it. PCS to a new base. Had an issue that was misdiagnosed at the previous base. I was in pain on a scale of 10/10 at this point and on narcotics. The flight doctor sent me in for an MRI via referral management. After my open MRI, I felt dirty because the lady gave me a Panera Bread gift card. I told referral management not to use that place again! Luckily, my surgeon didn't accept the MRI images or results. He said I needed to have them done at a certain hospital because the place where I went MRI images would be too blurry and he hadn't even seen them. The report from the MRI said everything was negative. After having a closed MRI, my issue was pretty obvious to my surgeon when the images came back. I was battling the issue for years and flight medicine did not properly diagnose me. The flight doctor I helped is the one who got me to the right specialist. I had surgery a few weeks later and my problem is gone! Took 4 years bro! When your quality of life and health care starts to suck. It's time to go. Med Groups are starting to mimic the VA model. Do you guys feel as though our on base care is diminishing or is in decline?

    OCPs Arrive Oct 1st, 2018

    Airmen and pilots operating downrange wear the Army Aircrew Combat Uniform, known as the A2CU, which has OCP-patterned fabric and the same fire-retardant properties as a flight suit. https://www.military.com/daily-news/2018/05/14/its-official-air-force-switching-armys-ocp-uniform.html
  4. This was well done to bring awareness and to highlight a predator. WARNING: KLEENEX MIGHT BE REQUIRED.

Granted they never poke the Chinese and there is no NATO umbrella or an Article 5. Taiwan is equipped to fight alone according to one of their officers who spoke to us back in the AFROTC days. It was a female officer who gave us the go at it alone speech.

    Promotion and PRF Information

    Medical Hobby Shop..I am dead! You are right Champ. However, I don't know which doctors to recommend off base. I didn't want to make my post too long by including this information either.

    Some squadrons are pretty tight with their flight doctors. Maybe you are not accustomed to that relationship. At least two enlisted personnel have come to me because their symptoms were being overlooked by doctors due to them being young airmen. I texted our flight doctor and he rolled in on the doctors in the Medical Group to resolve the issues. Someone from intel needed to be cleared for a TDY and the Medical Group was dragging their feet on the paperwork. Texted the flight doctor and he rolled in once again to save the day. Flight doctors aren't always mentored properly just like any other career field. They probably have leadership that solely looks out for themselves. I was surprised when the doc asked me about his PRF. I actually had to call a Medical Group at a different base for the information. And I showed the doc on MyPers how to figure out when he will be IPZ for the Medical Corps. Bros taking care of bros, no matter the AFSC. If you aren't in the AF anymore, how can you call a flight doctor an idiot for seeking out mentorship? I don't think any idiots make it through med school. Bendy....have a snickers.

    I'm sorry! His cult deserves it.

    Promotion and PRF Information

    No PSDM drop yet for the next majors board? I learned a few months back our flight docs do not receive a PRF. A letter is submitted for them. "Met all reqs. Promote!" "Did not meet all reqs, attempted to pop a cyst, thinking it was a pimple. DO NOT PROMOTE!" Just that simple. A doc was asking me about whether or not he needs to submit a PRF before his PCS. I was close to saying, "Damit Jim, I'm a pilot snacko, not a doctor." I made a call, and low and behold, no PRF for them. Just like SOS is optional for flight doctors.

    If you think telling someone to drink a glass of metamucil is a personal attack then you got me. Calling a rescuer of the Thai teenagers a pedo though is on an entirely different level wouldn't you agree? "Elon Musk called a British diver from the Thai Cave Rescue a 'Pedo Guy' — then Deleted the Tweets Hours Later with No Explanation" http://www.businessinsider.com/elon-musk-british-cave-diver-pedo-feud-thai-cave-rescue-2018-7

    You can just not read the thread too. There is more to life on a Saturday than you complaining about a thread some dudes like and some may hate. It's in the squadron bar section for a reason. You did post a picture of Space X rockets landing just a page back. Yet you keep coming back to the thread. Does my posts trigger you? How about you load up on your metamucil and log out of the forum for a bit?

    "Elon Musk can 'stick his submarine where it hurts', says British caver who helped rescue Thai schoolboys" https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/asia/thai-cave-rescue-elon-musk-mini-submarine-british-driver-tham-luang-vern-unsworth-a8447166.html A British diver who was instrumental in rescuing a schoolboy football team from a flooded cave in Thailand has told Elon Musk to “stick his submarine where it hurts”, describing the entrepreneur’s offer to help the mission with a miniature submersible a “PR stunt”. Vern Unsworth said a six-foot submarine the SpaceX boss invented and handed to the rescue team “had absolutely no chance of working” because the billionaire inventor “had no conception of what the cave passage was like”.

    The people who can't keep their hands on the steering wheel are the same ones buying "not a flamethrower" in California of all places. Brilliant idea. In this forum, we might not like what some individuals post. But personal attacks are for Lts who wasn't loved enough by their mother, father, and IPs. Illiteracy is a huge problem. I mean if your mom COULD actually read the instructions on the side of the Plan B box, you wouldn't be here right now. Everyone loves a good mom joke..😁

    Elon Musk & Tesla EVs

    Gasoline and diesel vehicles make up 99% of cars sold. EVs only account for 1% of sales. When Tesla can actually sell 10 million cars in a year like Toyota did last year, we can have this discussion. Having 450K reservations doesn't come close to measuring up to the 20 million cars total that Toyota or Volkswagen actually sold last year. There is a huge difference between a reservation and sales. Sell 10 million Teslas and lets see how the safety records compare. Battery packs can reignite after the fire has been put out which puts first responders and those trapped in a car in harms way. Why were those drivers negligent? Because Musk was making these claims and during interviews he had his hands off the steering wheel while driving himself. Tell that to the mother or father of a child who gets run over by a Tesla in a school zone because people believe everything he has to say. Musk has a cult of 22 million followers who calls him Tony Stark. Musk said, "The probability of an accident with the autopilot is less" at the 1:25 mark per your savior. I'll take the white Toyota from behind by a semi over the Tesla that hit a barrier and burst into flames because the owner was driving around on autopilot. The Japanese know how to build stuff that lasts.
