In a gesture of goodwill, Southwest named a row of seats after her.

Been doing this long enough now to see the slide from something I dreamed of doing all my life to something that is absolutely unbearable at times.  Dad flew for 28 years before me and both of my gran

No dog in the fight.  But the 480FS Wikipedia page has an awesome “Woke era to present write up.” never seen that before must be a new AF Historian.

Anyone having any deployment issues with people over 30 BMI? I’m hearing people not being allowed to deploy of over 30 BMI...

There was some guidance released last week, well “kinda“ guidance. We are trying to figure it out. PM me a .mil if you want more info.

Oh ya, he’s  serious.  Pretty much as he said, if you have a BMI over 30 you need a waiver to deploy, as some CDC study or something came out saying people with a BMI over 30 are more likely to have Corona virus complications. 
 

For the general population it might make sense, but for fit people BMI is a absolutely horrible indicator of over fitness. Hint hint, muscle weighs more than fat, and plenty of military folks weight lift. 
 

And ya, quarantine and airlift are still a total CF. 

 

Sorry folks, nothing really secret, If Danger41 needed more info I  didn’t want to disclose deployment timelines and processes all over the webs, and a lot of the processes/waivers/tracking are pretty uncertain at this point so I didn’t want to spread bad info.

Not to be "that guy" but a minor point that muscle does not weigh more than fat.  1 pound of muscle weighs the same as 1 pound of fat.  Muscle is more dense, therefore 1 pound of muscle will take up less space than 1 pound of fat.

You might be the only person who doesn’t understand the conversation.
