  1. Yeah we can tell by your non stop virtue signalling. Is there not a Nav board for you to do that on?
  2. False. https://t.me/TommyRobinsonNews/26576 CDC director Rochelle Walensky now admits that the "vaccine" cannot prevent transmission.
  3. Is your buddy having surgery in the ICU? That's weird. It's definitely a staffing shortage. Maybe they shouldn't be firing/laying off people during a staffing shortage...priorities.
  4. Just because a process has "worked" on a small scale, does not give proof that its a secure model. Just because it has 'worked' has ZERO correlation to its susceptibility to fraud. "It worked" does not mean "it cannot be taken advantage of to win by any means necessary". Self checkout lines work. Is that going to stop a desperate crowd from stealing shit when the time comes?
  5. Hello,

    I sent you a pm. 


  6. In the future, I'll be full time at my unit for a few months for deployment spin up, but will be coming from across the country. Different than just the UTA + some AFTP days once a month, where hotel provided and rental car is a cheap cost. I should have lodging provided as I'll be outside commuting distance.. any tips on car? Or other tips in general on being outside commuting distance for 2-3 months? I also plan on cancelling my lease out of state to save on rental payments. Thanks
  7. Nothing about that sounds like a solid deal.
  8. What luck have guard guys had being able to sell it back? I'll be coming off orders at the end of Sep....
  9. I did AMS in 2014, UPT 2015, B Course 2016.. all of those were Title 10. When I did MEST however in 2017, it was about to be T10 but then NGB apparently came down and made them T32. I thought UPT+BCourse was always T10 because of where the money was coming from
  10. Also, as Guard/Reserve, any time you accrue under Title 10 orders can be applied towards reduced retirement age, I think in 90 day increments. So for a guard baby, that should at the very least be 2 years (AMS/UPT/BCourse) plus any deployments subtracted from Guard retirement age. Collect that money earlier! Its not automatic. You gotta go on vMPF, search for it, upload all your orders, and they gonkulate a new retirement date for you.
  11. Nice dig. The nation's leading experts are recommending the widespread use of masks -- not to protect the wearer from acquiring the virus -- but to help prevent those with the virus from spreading it further. For example, coughing with a mask on probably reduces the distance of the droplets. If you're within radius of the droplets though, and have a mask on, it probably wont do shit. My reading comprehension taught me that cloth mask filtration with virus is almost 0%. "Self-contamination through repeated use and improper doffing is possible. For example, a contaminated cloth mask may transfer pathogen from the mask to the bare hands of the wearer. We also showed that filtration was extremely poor (almost 0%) for the cloth masks. Observations during SARS suggested double-masking and other practices increased the risk of infection because of moisture, liquid diffusion and pathogen retention" "In the interest of providing safe, low-cost options in low income countries, there is scope for research into more effectively designed cloth masks, but until such research is carried out, cloth masks should not be recommended." To answer the previous question -- no there was no control vs effectiveness against no mask at all. So, is throwing a bandana over your face more effective when walking around walmart? Maybe, maybe not. If someone with the virus sneezes near you... no, its not going to do shit. If the virus is on your mask, is it more likely to stay there due to increased moisture retention? Yes. If some dumbass with the virus is out in public and wearing a mask, will it slow their infectious rate down? Probably. Could people walking around with masks now have an increased false sense of security, and start to relax their hygiene and other counter measures? Maybe.
  12. Masks can actually make things worse....
  13. Hired in september. Do you have dates yet? Have you even done anything officially on military duty? I just don't know if you have much room to work with. If you were off at training and they fired you... for sure. But it sounds like you were actively working for the company, and they chose to release you.
