Promotion and PRF Information

Isn’t that what the AF desires? A bunch of people trying to be the next CSAF regardless of everything else

The best interest of the USAF is to have everyone slugging it out giving 169% because they think they have a shot at being the MFWIC someday.

It works in a lot of cases. I know guys who have been repeatedly denied entry onto the HPO track yet they keep begging for their beatings.

Imagine if OPR’s were honest...dudes would be jumping ship even more often when they realize they aren’t going anywhere early on.

Even then there's a lack of feedback to allow people to make informed decisions. 
Never strat'd below 2 in any assignment.  I rx'd a wing strat (5/380) at my last base at the 6 yr mark.  Come to staff (sold as a "good job to get in Ops community"), no strat on last OPR despite running (and being recognized for) several DoD level programs, and CGOTY for div, blah blah blah.  Not selected by recent DT for a leadership position which I'd openly been asked about by the Generals where I wanted to go.  
Absolutely zero feedback about OPR, or future.  Actually, that's not true, I was told first that "someone didn't take care of me" and then I didn't have enough high level strats, so it was inappropriate to get a NAF strat yet.
Motherers think I'm inclined to have a "all others" kinda career, they're sorely mistaken.

What will we do without you?

Keeping on.  What's it going to do without all these pilots?  Already offered my AFSC a bonus because retention sucks.

Point was about the lack of feedback.

It's when you're not one of the chosen, but you haven't realized that the only winning move is not to play.

Not unlikely but the cure for that is to officially end golden boy / favored son programs / positions (exec and other such suckling jobs) and have the first 6 years or so of everyone’s careers be direct duties performance appraisal with leadership potential only judged around the 8 year point.

O-3 and below should be / is focused on operational proficiency / tactical leadership.
That has a strong rated view to it as other non rated officers primary function is leadership from the get go but that again leads to separate ratings / promotions for rated and non rated to address that.

Any 09 guys “as met” records show up on PRDA yet?

I just heard a rumor that the Majors board results won’t come out until March.

How does it take 4 months to release results of a board that didn’t include PRFs and will only look at cases of candidates with negative indicators?

The list still has to go through all the wickets.  SecDef office, Congress, etc.

It’s showing mid to late March on mypers.  It’s only 3 months from when the board finished. Until they start rolling it back like the 06 guys results then I really wouldn’t worry about it right now. But it still has to go through the wickets.

Yeah it shows mid March on mypers just wondering when the documents the board saw will be posted to PRDA under the Board section. My last board record was posted about 2 weeks or so after the board met if I remember correctly.

Because the process must still follow the law which means Congressional review and all the other things.

Granted, however most of the time is spent getting out of the AF. My last board went through the Office of the SecDef in like 10 days, but spent 3 months in AF circles.

duck you're getting out?

Actually changed my mind. I’m shooting for a school slot and directly into leadership, thinking maybe I’ll start as a DO, but definitely BTZ to O-6 (to catch up with my peers). I realized they never deploy, never do anything worthwhile and mostly spend their days forwarding emails. They also get to pretend to care about people and come up with cool catch phrases like “mission first! People? Yeah we got those too”. I’m “all in” now. Just picked up another strat for my O-5 board and if I play my cards right I should be able to be the Wing Exec after the last ass kisser moves on to ACSC. All in all, things are looking up for the Duck-nasty.

Since they never update the board status page, I emailed them and got an email back from the promotion people, the O-4 board was briefed to the SECAF and now with her “lawyers”. WTF does that mean?

Lt Gen Grosso briefed the Senate Armed Services Committee that it's still with SECAF last week, the "quality review board" that is...ha, appearance counts for too much. The lawyers are probably making sure the 'QRB' is legal.

I checked the other day.  Didn't see them in PRDA yet.  Hopefully we'll hear the first week of April.

I emailed the promotion guys a couple weeks ago about records and PRDA. I thought the “as met” shows up after the board convenes, but it’s actually after the board is released.

I am expecting to hear words around 9 April just based off the last couple boards timelines and the fact that SWA’s application window closes on 8 April. I’m sure the AF would love to screw the twice passed over guys just one more time if they can.

Well I hope for your sake that we find out sooner than later.

Alright WTF? The O-4 board release was just pushed back ANOTHER month. Used to be Early March, and now we are looking at Mid-Late May. Still stuck at SECAF level and hasn't been released to the Office of Sec Def. Anyone have any guesses what the fvck is going on with this clown show?

My gut tells me that they are trying to change something major after the fact, just like last board when they stripped all the school slots from the promotion results. That caused the last release to be delayed by about a month or so. Maybe this time they are trying to petition congress (or whoever is in charge of promotions above the AF?) to allow all IPZ/APZ O-3s to be promoted despite who was non-selected at the Central Selection Board.

Seriously, anyone have any vis on this?

I just find this comical now. They did something similar with the 06 yg and kept rolling it back over 2 months. Duck I think they know how bad you want out and are going to keep you for as long as they can.  But I do understand how frustrating this can be for folks who are planning on getting out and may already have jobs lined up. Who really knows what is going on with AFPC and those who are making these types of decisions. It just one more reason why they have lost the faith of the troops.
