    It's Official, OCPs are Coming!

    2, it’s always fun to trigger some diamonds and Chiefs. Helps to separate the shoe clerks from the SNCOs you can actually respect and turn to.

    Promotion and PRF Information

    Disagree with the “you are what your record says you are.” How many dirtbags can we all think of with stellar records on paper that are now in command/06s? There was a time not too long ago that the best records were those of the Christmas party planners, the ones who did masters work instead of studying the airplane as copilots and generally the biggest brownnosers. Heck those people still sort of thrive. Likewise, I am sure we can think of a few dudes that everyone of our peers respect in and out of the airplane that aren’t on any “command track.”

    For an Admiral, he has very a poor understanding of how the constitution works.

    What's wrong with the Air Force?

    SecFo “earned” their berets? If having the lowest ASVAB score amongst all AFSCs and checking ID cards makes you think you are badass then it’s no wonder other services make fun of us. There are grunts our there who do god’s most dangerous work and have legitimately earned those berets.

    They don’t have to be, but it helps, here is why: you can’t force a civilian to come in at 2200 on a Saturday to give malaria pills or ambien to aircrew deploying short notice the next day. Also, it’s a lot harder to fire civilians when they suck at their jobs.

    It’s awfully quiet here. Republicans keep the senate while Dems take the house. The house will do everything in its’ power to get rid of Trump while tripping over themselves while Trump has guaranteed himself another Supreme Court pick when RBG bites the dust thanks to the senate. Here in Texas there is hardly any “blue wave,” as some would wish. Let the 2020 blood bath begin.

    Aaaand this is why we have a retention crisis, incase anyone was wondering.
  10. Why don’t units just buy the J? Eventually Lockheed is going to refuse to support MX for the H.

    Grumpy MC Driver

    We IPs in the MAF are getting tired of this. Whether a shitty copilot who shouldn’t have made it through UPT is babysat by an experienced AC/IP or not..he/she is still a safety hazard and a liability. Yes, some are coachable but some do not belong anywhere near an airplane.

    Just curious, why do you think Trump won’t run in 2020?

    What is next for the UPT-Next graduates?

    Everyone would wash out, the “distractions” nearby are too scenic for studs’ own good. Enoid single moms looking to latch an officer down was enough reason to keep to the room to study and chairfly!

    Traditionally, yes. The HPO process was formalized by being a “school select” at the 04 board. However, now that they haven’t designated school selects on two 04 boards in a row, it’s more of less open game. Those who would’ve been selects will probably still go and become a HPO and those who still want to play the game have a better chance/ more time.

    I’m too young to remember her antics as the “first female wing commander” or something but she has been a phenomenal senator and an outspoken advocate for national defense issues and the military.
  17. One of the best herk drivers I have flown with. He embodied the community and what it means to be a tac airlifter. I too will have a can of Copenhagen straight for you sir. Godspeed.

    LAF Major Board

    The SECAF released a memo today reiterating that 100% promotion opportunity means just that, opportunity, not outcome. Your senior rater can still tank you. How that plays out THIS promotion board is yet to be determined, esp after the fiasco that was the ‘09 board.
  19. Same in this corner of the MAF. Lot’s of former RPA or white jet guys within 3 years of the commitment that are already refusing to upgrade. Many of the other IPs planning to punch at the earliest opportunity. It’s okay, we don’t need instructors...

    What's wrong with the Air Force?

    “The composition of flight squadrons needs to reflect the entire U.S. population, he said. Squadrons today, particularly fighter squadrons, are still mostly composed of white males, something that must change to reflect the country's demographics, he added.” ....Yepp, this is why pilots are leaving the Air Force, too many white males!!

    What is next for the UPT-Next graduates?

    Is this going to be one of those “too big to fail” programs where there is downward pressure to pass these students along?

    People always bring up the Nordic countries as an example of socialist success. First, those countries are sparcely populated and highly homogeneous that share similar ideology..stark difference from here in America. Second, their economies are actually starting to suffer because wealth creation and free enterprise is suppressed. There is a lot of displeasure with their government and that is starting to take a toll. Finally, who would want to pay a 50%+ tax rate!? I will agree with you that no country is truly capitalist or socialist but rather a mix of ideologies on a scale.

    Bernie was on welfare in his early adult years, then somehow became a politician and is now a millionaire. No one becomes rich in politics unless you are a corrupt crook. I’d pay money to see him run again, watching him get evicerated will be entertaining.
