  1. I’ve asked various commanders I’ve worked for why we don’t strat more than 15-20% unlike the Marines that strat everyone. Most say something along the lines of “the Air Force doesn’t care about you if you’re not in the top 15-20%. It’s just another method to discretely maintain an HPO system. I wish we would strat everyone 1-n, there should be no question on where an officer stands relative to their peers. But that would eliminate the cat string that causes officers to think that they still have a chance.
  2. On the MAF side, 50% of those selected for Phoenix Eagle did not do residence IDE. Many of them are commanding flying squadrons now. The real benefit of IDE for folks that want to stay in and command is an automatic vector to a staff assignment before DO/CC.
  3. Cool debate and back and forth per usual...what does the congressman think about our discussion? Air Force pilot to Air Force pilot..??
  4. She’s a huge social justice warrior and nonner; of course the dude was obviously the bad guy in this divorce mess. Good lord does she have anything better to do?
  5. What OSS is that? OSS ADO is nothing but queep..
  6. It is an entitlement and most CCs will not get in the business of denying leave especially for life events. CCs also get scrutinized when their members have a ton of leave especially ‘use or lose’. 10% rule applies but like everything else can be flexible with good proactive leadership. Only seen leave cancel for a short notice deployment.
  7. They’ll be Covid tested though right? Asking for a friend
  8. It’s a waste of time and reiterates why 90% of Congress is worthless; and one of the frustrations that influenced the Trump movement in the first place. Maybe if Congress actually did their job it would help regain some trust in the very institutions we need to rebuild the political unity in this country. After recent events, I wouldn’t worry about Trump even thinking about reelection. “Formal condemnation”, who cares? There has been plenty of condemnation from both sides, maybe focus on why Capitol police officers just let the rioters waltz in, or unfuck the NDAA that you passed several
  9. We spent the last month removing metric tons of equipment and personnel out of an unnamed third world wonder...only to be told we have to prepare to undo that and put everything back in a few weeks..
  10. I’m impressed you took the time to find that. Except I don’t consider the idiots storming the Capitol conservatives. True conservatives value rule of law and order, neither of which was embodied today. Goes back to my previous point that that the extremes don’t define the majority. So I fail to see your point.
  11. No one on this forum claimed that the right doesn’t / can’t riot. Most of us hate these idiots on the far right as they delegitimize our values. I would bet every Trump supporter in this forum, myself included, condemns this violence and hopes for a peaceful transition. Likewise we don’t claim that the actions of antifa are representative of the mainstream democrats. Groups should not be characterized by their worst people.
  12. While I don’t think it was Trump’s “inflammatory words” that cost the right the senate (at least one senate seat in Georgia, fingers crossed to keep the other for the sake of this country), I do find Ted Cruz’s grand standing counter productive. I’m obviously a huge MAGA fan and not ashamed about it but Trump lost. It’s time for Republicans to deal with it, thank him for his service (sincerely), and focus on their fight against the Green New Deal and its radical supporters the next few years. Or worse, court packing and going after the electoral college. Buckle in, hope sticking it to Trum
  13. A lot of tough talk on “Accelerate Change or Lose,” to Russia and China yet waste time on this PC BS. AF leadership is probably just trying to preemptively toe the line with one of the many “priorities” of the incoming administration.
  14. Sure dude, if it weren’t for those asshole fighter pilots hurting everyone’s feelings, they would be able to process PCS vouchers in time, or ensure the DFAC was open for those night lines and mid shift maintainers, or not screw up PCS orders so bad, or screw up people’s pay, or volunteer at the CGOC while their flight can’t manifest cargo worth their lives. There is a reason for Brabus’s scorn, and while much much more than 10% of our non-ops brethren are worth their weight in gold, the nonner mindset is a thing, and it has nothing to do with AFSC or how close to the flightline you work.
  15. They could get rid of SOS and the service’s capabilities wouldn’t change nor would anyone worth their salt blink an eye. The only positive things I hear about it are trivia night downtown, stellar BBQ and drinking games, all of which I can do at my Squadron bar anytime. SOS DG was also a self licking ice cream cone of HPO production, many of whom didn’t have to do jack all to remain on said golden path. If they actually want to teach doctrine, keep it virtual with some reading material and essays. There were some good lessons like the promotion board exercise (which made many of us even mor
