  1. I didn’t really have strong justification so I just went with needs of the AF. Since 11Rs are so “overmanned “ that they didn’t warrant a bonus, surely it benefits the AF to get a line-flying old O-5 off the books. Someone probably had a good chuckle as they stamped DENIED on my request. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  2. Yes they denied mine. Even had support from my chain. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  3. Met a guy at my Delta interview who was an Army WO with some C-12 time. He retired and spent about 5 years flying some rich guy’s private jet. He got a CJO. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  4. Wow I feel like I must’ve missed something after reading Clearedhot’s experience. I did a 45 minute phone call with a VSO who went through my record with me and submitted the paperwork. Then I did some bloodwork, a hearing test, and a mobility test/ q/a session with a Doc contracted by the VA. Did all of that in one location, took about 2 hours. Don’t have my rating yet, probably going to get shorted. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app

  6. You can do either. An SHPE appointment at the base clinic or just go straight to the VA for them to do the physical. Not sure if one route is better than the other. I did the VA physical. Was super easy. But I’m still on terminal so don’t have my rating yet… Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app

  8. There should be someone at your base who handles that. For me, our base TAP coordinator put me in contact with him and he was able to send me screenshots of the program he used to estimate my retirement pay for a few different retirement scenarios. Basically, it’s done by calculating your actual base pay in each of the previous 36 months multiplied by the percentage which is prorated to the month.

  9. But how many of those unvaccinated people would be in the ICU if they’d made more healthy life choices prior to their choice to not get an experimental vaccine? If they weren’t obese/diabetic/heart disease/etc due to an unhealthy diet promoted for decades by the USDA and immensely influential corporate entities, would their vaccine status matter as much? We should always look beyond first-order effects. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  10. The other problem is the wife loses the payout if she remarries. So if you are basing the calculations on you dying young, also consider that your young wife would likely remarry and lose the benefit. We just decided to go with an 800k term life policy for $45/month from AAFMA. Will be self-insured by the end of that policy Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  11. Thanks fellas. As usual, better info on here than from our AFPC “professionals” Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  12. I’m regular. And am aware of the high 36, but that’s the same whether my retiree ID says Maj or Lt Col which is what I meant when I said it makes no difference. Aside from $, is there any other considerations I might be missing? For instance, if I ever returned to AD, would it be as O-4 or O-5? Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  13. I’m retiring with less than 3 years time in grade as O-5. Apparently that means I’ll be retiring as a Major even though I’ve been pinned on Lt Col for 2.5 years. Can anyone explain to me what this actually means? My pay isn’t affected since the high-3 doesn’t take into account what grade you retire in. Any other ramifications of this that I should be aware of? Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  14. Not sure about the PC option. But I requested a SecAF waiver to curtail my bonus ADSC and pay back the unearned portion to retire at 20. It was denied. But this was also pre-Covid. YMMV Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  15. And my apologies for the old reply that may as well be 10 years old given the pace of modern attention spans. But still relevant. As is all this old stuff: [/url] IMHBAO, this rhetoric over the last 4 years has done more to cause the insurrection of last week than anything coming from the White House.
