Promotion and PRF Information

Recommended Posts

If you have been legally prescribed a medicine, you don't have to worry about popping hot. They look to see if you were authorized the meds based on your medical records/prescriptions. I assume there are reasonable time limits that goes with your prescription and DDRP.
I think his point is... or at least what I got out of his story is that it looks like there was a good chance he was definitely being profiled and if that was the case, HTF did the drug testing people know of his medical records? That is HIPAA stuff right there.

I would assume medical on base or a lab off base tests the results. The DDRP lady isn't testing your samples. Personnel running the tests already have access to your records or don't if sent off base.

I was put under and had a screw put in on Thursday, went to work on Monday and got popped. I had to go to a off base provider out of town because the shithole town I was in didn’t have a specialist, so in no way did my doc on base have a record of this surgery or prescription. I told my leadership before I left to pee that I had a legal prescription from my off base doc and I was going to pop positive, and I doubt that the base had my records for this yet, just to CYA. They just said go for it. I told the pee test lady my situation and she said if someone pops positive they compare what’s in your system to current medical records, if you have things in your system from recent surgeries/current prescribed meds then you are g2g. 

Moral of the story, they most certainly can access your medical records.

A few weeks back I was visiting my parents in a state where MJ is legal and after dinner I grabbed for an artisan caramel I saw. Luckily my sister saw me because it was her edible MJ and stopped me.

I’m not sure what I would have done if I had eaten it. Tell the USAF and get screwed or hope I don’t get popped for a drug test.

What would you dudes have done?

,For those who don’t know, and I’d guess quite a few, you would know right away something tastes different.  It’s a lot more “earthy” and it takes a bit more butter to activate the THC.  When your memory starts to go away and you laugh at everything, you’re busted.  I’d fess up, shit stays in your system for like 30 days, it’s a simple oops I’d hope.

on a side note, I’ve been told if you have no gal bladder edibles won’t work at all.

Looks like some more year groups (at least for Cyber) got vectoring again.  The whole top/mid/bot-third w/ three pushes. 

CC walked in with mine today...this shit is so black magic I don't even care anymore.

So I'm sure a few of you saw the AFPC mail robot requesting more officers for recruiting, ROTC, OTS, and Academy jobs.  I filled mine out hoping to go to an ROTC gig back in my home town.

I called the det in my home town.  They were super-excited to have a rated officer interested.  They're undermanned and need instructors.

My own community is shrinking.  Leadership is running through COA after COA for where we can possibly place all these pilots and WSOs as squadrons draw down to almost half their size, and as we're being told attached flyers will do all their currency and training events in the sim (if you're in the OSS, you're probably not going to see the inside of a jet again for a while, if ever).

So...after a couple phone calls and an email or two, I get my answer - rated officers are completely ineligible to teach ROTC due to the Rated Staff Allocation Plan (or whatever we're calling it now).

So, instead of not flying but executing a CSAF-directed task of bringing new officers into the Air Force, I can not fly and sit in an office here at Dyess because the UMD is programmed for a flyer.
Thanks, Air Force.

I seriously doubt you will get selected as a rated guy

 

we are in a rated manning crisis; big AF won’t approve that, and if they do, it will be very limited....so your chances would be slim

Just My Opinion though

You’ve been around dude, there are exceptions for everything, you just need to talk to the correct person.  Who that is?  I don’t know.

I guess I'm more valuable not flying at Dyess than I am not flying at an ROTC detachment

Don’t undersell yourself- you’d be most valuable not flying on a 365 to AUAB.

1/2 the size? What is driving this? The RSAP is difficult to deal with for us. Can’t fill legit staff positions at the MAJCOM due to this—-so sorry mister Burnout Major who has deployed your tail off you have to stay in the Ops Sq because the squadrons need to be manned.

Is there any thought to reflowing anybody from GSC to AFSOC?

No idea.  What's driving ours specifically is a severe shortage in aircraft availability.  A bunch of SQ/CCs (ops and MX) got together for a week to crunch the numbers and presented the whole thing to Gen Ray.  Bottom line, we don't have the iron necessary to support our current commitments or squadron sizes.

We're currently just sending folks to Growlers, Pensacola, UPT...places we were already sending folks, just at a trickle.  Now we're sending more.  They even had a short-notice tasker to send a WSO to the F-15E FTU...like, email sent out on a Monday for a class start that Thursday or Friday.

We're also planning to send a bunch of people to the BUFF, even though the BUFF is already overmanned in the flying squadrons.

“Overmanned.” Go with data.

I only have what the functional tells us during roadshows.  That's the excuse given for why BUFF guys can get staff jobs and teach UPT while guys like me have been unable to PCS for six years.

Don't lose all faith. Check myPers for the Rated Command Oppotunities. It's not ROTC, but it's something...

"Rated Lt Cols and (selects) interested...may also be considered for Air Education & Training Command (AETC) Recruiting (C83R) and Training (91C0) command positions."

One more reason to hope and pray for promotion.

The ROTC commander I talked to said there were 25 total rated jobs across all ROTCs in the country.

Can’t speak to the GSC side of the house, but AFSOC is still looking for rated bodies, probably across the board. I’ve known a handful of BUFF EWOs cross over to MCs. I imagine there’s a handful of bomber dudes who found themselves in gunships as well. However the biggest limfac in gunships is the AC-J pipeline. U boat crossflows have created quite a backlog from what I understand. YMMV, but most schoolhouses (except maybe U-28s) have limited student throughput.

U-28 pipeline for pilots is backed up, CSOs however are in demand, couple started class a few weeks ago that graduated nav school 10 ish days prior.
