  1. Who is in the market for a VA IRRRL? Give Marty Medve and his team at Trident Home Loans a call. Trident was able to do a 2.75% interest rate with a small fee but not the 1.5 points others are charging. I think the rate without the fee was 2.875%. There was also a nominal lending fee of $555. With my VA rating there was no VA funding fee. This was one of the few times where the rate has been low enough (.5 below current mortgage) for me to be eligible. It’s a great time to re-fi and save some money. edit: to correct an error and for clarification.
  2. Thanks to Amy and her team at NBKC. Closed earlier this week on a “second” home so rates are a little higher at 4.375%. Amy and her team worked through all the underwriting hurdles (college town condo) and made this a reality. NBKC was the only place that I could find that was willing to find a way to make this a reality. Closing was in just over 30 days with Christmas and New Years holidays thrown in the mix. Recommend giving Amy a call when you are shopping for mortgage loans/rates. Great experience all around. Thanks again Amy.
  3. Interesting. CRDP may not be automatic but I never “applied” for it. Maybe my VSO did that in the background for me. YMMV. Combat related issues can be different but the general rule of thumb is 50% or greater gets concurrent receipt.
  4. #3...offset dollar for dollar if you get LESS than 50%... if 50% or more then you get full retirement pay AND the VA disability payment
  5. You CAN break up PTDY as others have said. I’m not sure that after being gone for 2 months that I would have wanted to come back to work for 2 days to out-process, like you are alluding to. If it is approved as terminal leave then your plan will not work. If you can convince your CC to sign an ordinary leave form for 60 days and then you come back, sign in and go out process then good luck to you. In my experience, this won’t happen but YMMV. Also, in your scenario expect your pay to be delayed and screwed up due to DFAS issues with processing it like you desire.
  6. And you’ll pay the ATM surcharge in order to get your own cash. But hey, if your friend doesn’t mind paying fees just to spend his own money then he is all set with this plan
  7. This has been rumored for months...I'll check a few sources and try to get back.
  8. Last number I saw was 80 per day, worldwide for the foreseeable future.
  9. I wonder if the Wing/CC called Killer? Is he still the AU/CC...I am sure he would not put up with this unless there is more to the story.
  10. I was paying about $420/month on a $240K home in Abilene (county taxes only). This was in 2009. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network Forums

  12. Holy thread revival!!! Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network Forums
  13. Not sure what the issue is with the 317th...Similar issues during the RIF back in 2010-ish. Back then we assumed it was the AG leadership... Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network Forums
