Hello everyone,

thank you so much for the valuable information! I apologize in advance as I'm sure these questions have been asked multiple times but I'm more looking for advice rather than a definitive answer.

I have extensive experience working very closely with an F-16 ANG FW on a almost daily basis (civilian federal position), and while I don't know any of the pilots personally (everything was handled over comms) would it be appropriate to ask them for a letter of recommendation? From my understand LoR's should come from individuals who know your character and work ethic on a personal and professional level, but at the same time I worked with the pilots every day in fairly significant role, just never met them face to face. They probably recognize my voice though!

Additionally, while I am correctable to 20/20 vision (and flight surgeon passed for FAA use), I'm pretty sure I will need lasik. I know recovery time is 6 months and technically speaking I have to be 1 year past the operation to be eligible. If I want to try for the Vermont board in a few months, would you recommend I get it (which would obviously be now), or is it essentially already too late? Do you think there might be time after the board and before MEPS when I could theoretically qualify?  

 

Thanks!

Check your DM, dropped you some notes about the VT unit. Can't speak to your specific situation regarding LoR from pilots in your unit, but off the cuff, would seem a bit strange and wouldn't necessarily fit the "know your character on a personal level" bit.

Went looking through posts back to March and couldn't find an answer, sorry if this is redundant. Anyone hear any news from the DCANG (113th Wing)? The last update I got from them was in May saying to expect an update in mid-June. Curious if anyone's been called for an interview and they don't bother with the "thanks but no thanks" for the rest of us, or if this board is still on hold.

Anyone getting responses from the HIANG yet?

I haven't received anything from them. It's only been about 10 days, so it'll probably take a little longer.

Nope. Just talked to the recruiter and she says they haven’t made any decisions yet.

Any of you wonderful folks got a contact at the 305th Rescue Squadron flying the HH-60 out of Tucson? Would love to see if they have any UPT boards upcoming this fall. Can’t quite dig it up on their site...

I was told to check back in about a week (8/17) for Hawaii.

Has anybody gotten an update from Jacksonville or DC?
