    What's wrong with the Air Force?

    Sounds like you have a bitch ass OSS/CC who doesn’t want to make a flight in Sq do their job.

    KC-46A Info

    I talked to a Boeing Rep years ago at an ATA about that. He said the USAF couldn’t afford to have them redesign the empennage to have a Boom Pod/ARO. Other countries have been flying the KC-30 with a camera system just fine, in color, unlike the Boeing system which is in black and white. Smartest thing the USAF did was a fixed price contract with this program.

    Flight Evaluation Board (FEB)

    Court martial. It was more of an example of civilian defense counsel isn’t always “better” than military assigned counsel.

    Flight Evaluation Board (FEB)

    I didn't go to jail, get a punitive discharge, had no legal fees, and kept all of my VA benefits. A prior Lt Col/C-17 guy I know paid $20K+ for a civilian attorney facing similar charges I was and got a dismissal (Officer equivalent of a Dishonorable Discharge), losing his career at 19 years and losing all of his VA benefits. One of us walked away in better shape than the other and the one in worst shape still owed $20K+ in attorney fees. YMMV

    Apparently people forget this used to be allowed.

    In these Hunger Games it doesn’t really matter if anyone is offended. All that matters now to the risk adverse managers of the USAF is IF someone COULD’VE been offended. Sounds like the four star didn’t want to leave it open for anyone to be possibly offended and wanted to show senior USAF, DoD, and Congress that he reacted to the alleged issue. The previous Vance CV was my Sq/CC when he was relieved of command over an ASEV failure, he was the fall guy. He eventually made O-6, but had to work twice as hard and the right people took care of him. So, I wouldn’t say this dude’s career is totally done. According to the article he just took over as Sq/CC, he probably has a few years before he’s retirement eligible.

    No CC these days will ignore the results of any CDI that involve criminal conduct. That whole careerism, appease senior CC’s and Congress thing, protect career thing. Why wasn’t he charged with assault consumed by a battery (Art 128)? If an A1C gets that charged for touching a girl’s ass certainly an Lt Col who’s a Sq/CC would get charged for trying to choke a dude in a bar.
  12. That snark from a Air Force GS that voluntarily lives in Clovis? Yeah, I I can’t imagine where that snark came from either.

    What the hell is going on with the SEALs?

    Valid. However, why doesn't the other SOCOM groups have these problems as bad as them?
