    ENJJPT or UPT for AFSOC?

    I've been in AFSOC and the MC-130 community for my entire career; AFSOC is only place in the AF I want to be; all the aircraft AFSOC owns have some awesome capabilities/mission sets and as with any community each has some drawbacks. MC-130s have an awesome mission and a great community; as the MC-130J starts to get spiral mod updates to bring it to/exceed the MC-130H standard things will only get better; caveat, as with anything AFSOC, you're going to be very busy. If AFSOC/MC-130s are what you're interested in keep pushing for them, but since you're young don't close your eyes to other communities/opportunities as you go through training. PM me if you have any detailed questions.
  2. Having worked directly for 2 SEALs and around several others in a joint job the last 18 months, none of this is surprising. I've been unimpressed with their leadership and accountability. It seems like a marked change from the Olson and McRaven era.

    Pilot Shortage Deepens, USAF is SCREWED.

    That has to be a joke right?....

    Syrian Su-22 Shot Down by US Aircraft

    I feel a strong disturbance in the Force, like a 1000 Eagle and Raptor pilots collectively groaning in agony....

    What's wrong with the Air Force?

    It'd be a snort of the Irish if it's Redbreast

    History Friday

    I always considered myself extremely lucky and felt very humbled to have been trained by some of the guys who flew this mission. Getting to listen to their stories first hand during sims was always an awesome experience.

    Hiring Freeze on Federal Employees

    My wife had an interview cancelled today for a GS nurse position at the local mil clinic so I would imagine it'll impact the military indirectly at the least.

    Marine MV-22 Pilot to ANG

    New Mexico 150th SOW is a guard unit in Albuquerque that flys CV-22s for the Osprey FTU, they only have a few positions but it might be something worth looking into if you want to stay in the Osprey.
