Haven’t posted on here before, but I’m just looking for some advice. I’m dropping in a few weeks and dream sheets are due in a couple weeks. I’m graduating out of Sheppard and have been an average T-38 student. My mass score etc. is roughly middle of the pack, which in the current environment means I could be assigned a wide range of stuff. Some background, I’m married, planning on having kids in the next couple yrs, and I’ve also had some long term family challenges arise with my parents/siblings. I even had to go home on emergency leave to take care of some stuff with my folks. Long story short, I’m curious what some of the more experienced ppl on here might think are better assignments for 1). Family life/time at home/stability and 2). The potential for palace front/chase at the 6-7 yr mark (though I know this is rare). I’m an AD guy, I love flying, and honestly could really be excited about anything from an F-16 to a B-52 to a C-130 if I feel like it will give me at least a decent amount of time and stability for family and/or a higher potential for a guard/reserve option in a few yrs. Please let me know if you have any wisdom in these areas, or have seen guys deal with this kind of perspective who may have 2 cents to share. Thanks!!
So I left active duty after serving 4 years of my 6 year contract with the intent to rejoin AD as a CSO. I recently found out the I have literally no depth perception according to all the AF tests. The Navy has a career very similar to the CSO that does not require depth perception. I am REALLY wanting to go Navy after I complete my degree in Summer 2017. At that time I will have slightly over 2 years left on my Palace Chase contract. I noticed in the Palace Chase AFI (36-3205) in section 220.127.116.11 that the "Gaining ARC Personnel Employment Element and/or Selecting Officials" may "not release PALACE CHASE members for transfer to non-Air Force components." This seems to be a huge roadblock in my plan as there is no additional verbiage on the possibility of a waiver. Does anyone have any insight on this topic? Thanks a lot!! -Mike
