  1. I did Regular to IRR to SELRES to ANG to PIRR. Easiest was SELRES to ANG. The most difficult was ANG to PIRR due to required recruiter involvement. The recruiter didn’t know what to do or how to do it. I ultimately had to go above him to the regional recruiter who did know what to do. Additionally the ANG process is longer due to a requirement to get a conditional release from the chain all the way to TAG, which shouldn’t be a big deal, but took a lot of prodding.

  2. The opposite is true. ACIP and bonus should be paid at a monthly/yearly rate for part timers the same as active duty. Both have the exact same requirements to be ready to fly. Also for all the complaints about AD pay, the same goes for drill pay: it’s not enough for the skills brought and already invested. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Moose: Tricare For Life is a medicare supplement which kicks in when you get Medicare at age 65. Tricare Prime or Select prior to age 65: it is a benefit but it’s not huge. The premium for health insurance from my employer is $100 per mo. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. But but I was PTWOB! or I was a SOAR IP! therefore due to my superior cadet status I should skip UPT!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. AFAIK any reference to reserve obligation term date is interchangeable with the term MSO (mil svc obligation) which is 8 yrs total service which can be any combination of active and reserve. So in your case you take the date you were initially put into active service and add 8 yrs. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Pro tip: Get a VA disability rating if you have anything to claim and you’ll start paying down your debt immediately and be done with it well prior to receiving reserve retirement pay. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Two other things defined Schwartz’ legacy. A culture of robotic compliance and “we had to do a RIF because not enough ppl applied for VSP.” Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. He way overplayed his hand when he said something to the effect of “staffs—where the hard work of airpower gets done”. If I were unsure before, I was not after I read that. Up until then, good show. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. While he still has his wings he is no longer rated because he has been permanently disqualified from rated service. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Had a support 1st shirt come to the pilot section last Nov on a UTA lamenting that few pilots were in attendance. Then he bragged that a fix was in the works. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Popular rumor. Any injury must be substantiated. There’s no automatic anything as far as I know. There was another one being passed around a couple months ago that said if you were vaccinated with a certain lot of anthrax vaccine that you’d automatically get a VA disability. Hoodwinked a lot of people. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. The ARC isn’t the only furlough insurance anymore. The never ending war(s) have created the contractor segment which pays quite well in comparison. If you’re gonna deploy anyway, might as well make it count during your (probably short) supposed furlough. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Idk. Ask the question to the hiring authority or ARPC. There are over grade waivers, re-grading of positions, etc, but my understanding is that as a part timer, your promotion will not be held up regardless of the position to which you’re assigned.
  14. You’ll need to look at Mypers to find out the dates associated with the ANG promo board and the dates associated with the AFRES board, then time your transfer according to who you want to be promoted by. I’d suggest transferring to AFRES prior to the ANG and AFRES PRF accounting date. That way AFRES will write your PRF and you’ll avoid possible difficulties with the FEDREC process delaying your promotion. Also with an AFRES promotion you might be able to be accelerated, which is more rare in the ANG. So to sum up: transfer now and you’ll be fine. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Additionally, you do have promotion opportunity as an IMA (cat B) or PIRR (cat E). Many people get promoted to O-5 in these positions. The key is to do PME and have decent OPRs and a decent number of points (i.e. more than the minimum). So many people don't do PME that that becomes the main discriminator. Cat A, B, and E all compete on the same promotion board. Straight IRR has a separate board and almost no one (historically) gets promoted on the straight IRR board (what ARPC calls the non-participating reservists).
