  1.

This posting is for a Part-Time, Traditional Reservist position. For more information: http://www.guardreservejobs.com/newjobboard/jobs/c-130-pilotnav-uptuntprior-rated/
  2. I rock this watch on days I'm not flying. Tough to read during the day and about impossible during night ops. IMO the one thing(s) it is missing is the battery-less technology available in some other watches out there and/or atomic clock. It sure does look the part though!

  5. I haven't, but I sure hope not...that would be a great way to finish up here at The Rock - finally qual'd and no where to go. Where did you hear that?
  6. Only minor errors...They read the Whiteman RPA wrong..both are to Creech. The KC-10 to McGuire is Reserve. And most importantly, the Guard C-130 on the "East Coast Somewhere" is actually Reserve to Maxwell. Why most importantly, you ask?? Because it was me!
  7. My brief Reserve timeline.. Hire: March 2009 Brooks: May 2009 AFRC Board: Sept 2009 AFRC Decision Results: November 2009 OTS: March 2010 IFS: June 2010 UPT: September 2010 It actually went about as smooth as it could have gone for me. All in all 1 year from hire to OTS. Hope that helps.
  8. Man, that would be nice if they would do that for the Reserves too! :) Doubtful...
