  1. Just got my final LES for CY17 and still have old flight pay rates.
  2. We are now over 2 months into the new FY and still no comms about this. Any DSG or TR see the increase in flight pay on their LES, yet?
  3. Question for medical folks. I have been told and I have read (in newsletters from ARPC and the medical community) an unattributed saying which is repeated quite regularly such that no one questions it. That saying is "You must be in a military status to use the MTF." I do not believe this is correct nowadays. The reason is because I have Tricare Reserve Select regardless of my military status, something that was not possible before around 2005 or so. TRS is basically Tricare Standard and people on Tricare *can* use the MTF on a space-available basis. How is it determined if space is available? No one can tell me that either. Their go-to is that space is unavailable. Easier to say "no" than to actually have to do something. So any docs or clinicians that can help me out with this and give me AFI references to support these two aphorisms, I'll appreciate it.
  4. Just got my first LES for FY18 (in which I did FY18 duty) and no increase to flight pay. Also no communication about this from anyone. Just one more thing for me to have to track down and take care of. ANG btw.
  5. PRF Recommendations

    Write a pretty darn good PRF based on their Navy records. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  7. What's wrong with the Air Force?

    Unless the guy was a criminal and given a dismissal thru a cm, given that we are supposedly in crisis, he should have been offered continuation. If he was not a criminal and not offered continuation, there's your evidence that the AF doesn't truly believe they're in crisis. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Not possible to retire from IRR unless you picked up at least 35 points from point-earning activity from IMA, AD, or SELRES (includes ANG and PIRR). USAF has two PIRR programs that are technically IRR, but AFRES treats them like SELRES in that they're on the same promotion board as SELRES and they get a CAC. The two PIRR programs are Admissions Liaison Officer and CAP-RAP. Straight IRR does not get a CAC, thus cannot do PME courses. The only points possible are 15 membership points for a straight IRR guy, so you'd need to get the other 35 prior to going IRR in that RR year for that RR year to be good. In addition, AFRES only let's you stay IRR for two bad years, then you're transferred to the inactive status list. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Meanwhile.... Where is the voluntary rated recall program? That's another tool they could use right now, but are not, as far as I know? True that most would not be interested, but some would be, and every body counts. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Better than talking about Masters degrees, which was standard at the FTU in the 2012-2014 timeframe. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. ACSC in the Guard

    NS Player: The links you provided mention a distinction between active and reserve points. Such that if you have 20 years' worth of "active duty" points then you qualify for an "active duty" retirement. If you also have "inactive points" AKA IDTs, then those are added onto the regular retirement. You can't retire on a regular retirement with 7300 points of IDTs, besides being impossible to accumulate (130 points of IDT per year max).
  12. ACSC in the Guard

    You absolutely need a cac to do acsc. So being IRR and doing acsc is not possible now. The only way to do acsc without a cac is as a civil air patrol officer, so good luck getting arpc to credit that for your military career. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
