Still nothing at my base (besides the two upper level execs being notified). I did have a friend look me up on the list and my name wasn’t on there, but until I hear it officially, I am holding off on the Duck Passover Party (clothing optional).

Sounds like an SOS type of party. Security Forces enter a dark hallway, then an open room. Nothing but naked officers run out and in the other direction. It happened...Naked & Afraid SOS.

My wing is going to announce on Monday. I have heard of at least one APZ that got told he made it already.

Well Gents, it’s been fun but Duck is now a twice passed over Captain on his way out the door. I appreciate all of you who reached out and offered me advice throughout the years. I know that I will have a ton of questions going forward as I transition to the next step. This community is awesome and I love (most of) you guys.

Congrats man! I have a feeling you’ll be missed (in your real life squadron.)

Congratulations Duck.... it's much better on this side. If you don't have your airline applications ready to publish, get on it ASAP. Let me know if you have any questions on the 2x passed over process.

Been there. Did they not offer continuation? I got continued on AD then Palace Fronted and made it first time in the Reserve. Highly recommend that option if you can find a unit. Feel free to hit me up if you have questions.

Has there ever been a more crystal clear sign that an organization is fundamentally broken than the fact that this celebratory thread (the largest in years) is for an individual essentially getting notice he is being fired? 

That said, congratulations!

I don’t know yet about continuation. My Commander called me late Friday night. He said that a letter was supposed to be attached to the email he got about my passover but MPF forgot to attach it. He said we will talk Monday. Thanks again guys. I feel like I just won the lottery.

Dick will most likely be continued to 20 years as a captain with the option to take it or get processed after 6 months.   

 

No no way does the Air Force "force" him out with it not being his choice.   If they did that, it's just like being RIFd or VSPd and they would owe him approx $100k

How F-d is an organization where a dude asks not to promote and gets congratulated for not doing so.

Congrats man.

IF you go ANG or reserve, don't take the money, you'll thank me later.

Does anyone know anything about permissive leave that a Commander can authorize for people separating? Is that a thing? I have about 55 days stockpiled, but wondering if I can add to it for terminal. Thanks for the kind words brothers!

I also found out yesterday. I’m a 1APZ and I made it. So far all the APZs I’ve talked to have made it. I wonder of guys that were passed over again if there are any that didn’t have a QFI or asked not to be promoted.

I know one who asked to be passed over to get out got what they wanted. Plus they already have things lined up.

Yes, you can do that. I ended up with about 3 months of terminal.

Get your TAP class scheduled and knock it out ASAP. You miss a week of work and you don't want to be doing that shit while you're in the middle of PCSing, separating, and job hunting all at one time.
