Is any other wing in AETC going for "full mission ready status"? Instead of reacting to increasing tensions with N Korea by focusing on making students that much better, we all have to do CBRNE, expeditionary active shooter training, etc.  This is despite the AETC push within the past 12 months to protect all FTU aircrew from deployments.  I'm pretty sure if there's a full blown war a) the production pipeline will still need to go on, and b) all that stuff would be waived anyway.

Nah.  They'll find that the squadron fostered a "culture of insubordination" because you can't go stepping on the some individual's freedom of speech.  It's the internet...which is basically a safe zone, right? 

Just fire the squadron commander, promote the wing commander, and move on.

Are you a UPT guy or an FTU guy? 

And if you think CBRNE will be waived in your North Korea example, I think you may be mistaken.

The first sergeant concluded his email by reminding them about former NBA superstar Michael Jordan’s habit of appearing at press conferences in a suit and tie, even without a dress code requiring it.

"He was never seen with a gaudy chain around his neck, his pants below his waistline, or with a backwards baseball hat on during public appearances,” Parish said.

Hopefully that shirt can turn in his papers.  What a joke.

Want to lose all credibility as a leader?  Use the term “microaggresion”.  #Triggered

 

Also, STEP promote that shirt to E-9 ASAP!

Our FTU is doing the same thing, despite shedding the DOC statement for x crews to support ops squadrons in an effort to make the most of our minimal manning. The things we're asked to do seem kind of random though...CST is a must, but we can't get any time to shoot the M9...

What’s more concerning is the undermining of a military force O-6’s, GO’s, and E-9’s do to maintain a fucked up political correctness.

We must be more careful with our words. If we want our young leaders to be successful in macroaggressions during war, we must avoid exposing them to, and victimizing them with microaggressions.

I much preferred the days when Academy staff used macroaggressions to show cadets what worthless maggots they were enroute to earning a commission and respect.

Seen a fair point on a FB page "if tacking on stripes is now hazing, how long until fini-flight spray downs are considered hazing as well"

It's already in there...

"(7) Subjecting another person to excessive or abusive use of water"

Guess they’ll need to drain the solo dunk tanks too when the T-6 is no longer grounded.

Soon SERE training will be accomplished by CBT since most of what goes on is prohibited by this policy.  Unbelievable.

I feel hazed and my feeling gets hurt whenever I received LOR/LOCs.  Can we abolish the letters?  The microaggression from my supervisor needs to stop now!

Is it considered a micro aggression or a macro aggression if I tell someone to grow a pair of goddamn balls. Probably highly offends the gender neutral sensibility as well. I vote Democrat lately and consider myself somewhat left of center. This is the kind of thing that gives liberals such a bad name amongst conservatives. These people need to understand how to be progressive without being such pussies about it.
