  1. 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.
  2. Hello everyone. I'm now a ROTC cadet looking at Reserve and Guard options. I should hopefully be commissioning in 2019. I have been searching for RPA and Space Ops units, but unsure which units are still operating with the same mission at this time, since most information online is from years ago. The ANG website is more straightforward, but the Air Force Reserve is not so much regarding what positions are available in which units. I'd greatly appreciate if any of you have information as to which units are available for me to consider applying to for ANG and ARC for RPA pilot and space operations officer positions. I know it's pretty early but ideally, I'd like to be able to best prepare my applications for these type of units. Thank you very much!
  3. Question came up in recent discussion with an old friend and I really didn't have an answer. He's flown charter, skydive aircraft, did the whole CFI thing for a little while, and is now flying CRJs with one of the regionals. On the quest to step up to the majors, he's also been scoping out some of the common foreign employers: Emirates, Korean Air, etc. He's had in mind to apply to a few Guard units as well and was wondering if the idea of working for a foreign company is even allowed while serving. Of course there are many considerations with such an idea: age limit, traveling back and forth overseas, employer's willingness to accommodate Guard commitment, deployments, etc ... but the question is just hypothetical for now. Anyone here dealt with this before? Or at least know someone that's flown, or even just worked for a foreign company while in the Guard? I fly on the helo side of the house so other than general knowledge on the standard airline employment process, I honestly don't know if this is a common question with the fixed-wing Guard bros. Whatever insight you guys have on the topic will be appreciated. --- PK...
  4. Separate from guardreservejobs.com, what are good ways to reach out to the Guard/Reserve community? I'm doing some consulting work for a northeast Cirrus air taxi operator. We've found that hiring guard bums and reservists fits our model very well. Anyone have any insight on how to target guard and reserve pilots?
  5. [i know this question is asked occasionally, created a bunch of keywords to help search results] 1. Do all Guard/Reserve units require me to have my degree BEFORE the board date, or before the application date? I'll be commissioning through ROTC so if I get accepted I can get started right away... 2. Where are the best places to see which units are hiring? WantsCheck is always broken... 3. If a unit isn't hiring, how would one go about asking to see if they need new guys anyway? Is there a law or AF reg that says the position needs to be advertised?
  6. Hey folks, I'm trying to start back up GuardReserveJobs.com. I realize it used to be a great central resource for units looking to hire and people looking to get hired. I've rebuilt the site, and I'm hopeful for a decent amount of traffic. What I could really use is the word of mouth network to spread the request for units to post job offers and for people to post their resumes. Thanks in advance for helping me to rebuild what used to be a great resource for folks fed up with active duty life and for ANG/Reserve units!

  8. Active Duty Air Force Announces Personnel Reduction Initiatives, the below statement is taken from a letter send by the Secretary of the Air Force Eric K. Fanning referring to the future downsizing of the Active Duty Air Force:“ we are now faced with some very difficult financial choices that force us to reduce the overall size of the Air Force. To be blunt, we are going to get smaller... smaller than we've ever been as an Air Force.” However, the chief of the National Guard Bureau feels differently about the future of the ANG.Gen. Frank Grass told soldiers and airmen that the 460,000-member force is capable of continuing missions both overseas and domestically. The National Guard Air and Army units should be able to maintain their readiness and deployment capabilities indefinitely despite a murky federal military budget outlook... It appears that the Air National Guard is the place to go if you want to continue your military career. Coincidently, it just so happens that the 152nd AOG in Syracuse NY is currently in search of the following vacancies: Officer AFSCs: 11 F/B/R/M - Pilot 12 F/B/R/M - Nav/CSO/WSO 13 B - Air Battle Manager The 152nd Air Operations Group is looking for qualified or previously qualified Fighter, Bomber, Recce, Mobility pilots/navigators, O-5 and below/all services, to fill key unit positions.

Together, the 603rd and 152nd provide USAFE with command and control of air component operations throughout Europe and Africa. This mission is exciting and we depend on the expertise of experienced rated officers from a variety of aircraft and mission backgrounds. These are part-time traditional guard positions at Hancock Air National Guard Base, Hancock International Airport, in Syracuse, New York. Served by most major airlines, the base is easy to get to from anywhere in the country. This is an excellent opportunity to continue your military career in a rated but non-flying position. Flight pay is available to those who have met the necessary gates. This an exciting and important mission, great people to work with, a flexible drill schedule and an opportunity to continue to build your military retirement.
