  1. Actually, I think these numbers have more to do with the airlines than anything. Most former RPA dudes in my community don't have the TT or PIC time required to be competitive at a major, so a lot of them are planning on sticking around for that reason alone. I also know a couple Bone dudes that are in the same boat due to them getting something like 2 hours a month for the past year. I don't know how the Buff and B-2 dudes do with respect to flying hours, but I bet the Bone dudes alone are enough to skew the numbers. Or I could be completely wrong on all this.
  2. You just described my last 2 years of AD. No ragrets.
  3. All I did was tell my ISR what I wanted my new date to be and he updated the 1288 and sent it to AFPC. Didn't seem too cosmic.
  4. Wills was the DLF WG/CC back in 2008ish (years run together since I was there for 5). He seemed like a good dude then and it's good to see he's trying to make it right. I don't necessarily have an issue with his policy, I have a problem with the execution. If this is the new norm, however, where will these extra 11F/Bs come from to fill the cockpits?
  5. So where do you draw the line? If something is responsible for 3000 deaths then it should be a mandatory 1-year sentence? What about 2000? 1000? Since your only piece of evidence is pointing at death statistics, then you have to have some figure in mind. Your mandatory sentence is stupid because you're putting way too much weight/confidence in a breathalyzer or in a cop's judgement to whether or not you're impaired. A lot of crimes are black and white. If you steal something, you're a thief. If you kill someone, you're a murderer. Those are clear cut. But if I have a beer and drive, I am at the mercy at the technology of a breathalyzer or a cop's judgement as to whether or not I will automatically spend a year in prison. Fuck that. If you want to put a mandatory sentence on something, make it black and white.
  6. Driving while tired is just as dangerous as drunk driving. Might as well lock up those tired fucks for a year too. A year for drunk driving? GTFO.
  7. Go fuck your face. The author of that "sob story" is one of my buddies and one of the most patriotic, humble, well-liked dudes I've known in my years in the AF. Not many people here have had assignments cancelled after: signing papers for a house, wife finding a GOOD job, and enrolling kids in school mere days before it starts. I don't care what you've been through, that's tough on anyone. Now, because one GO thinks heavy drivers aren't capable of teaching tac form, he has to do it all over again, but now he gets to pull his kids out of school mid-year and enroll them somewhere else. His post should be something we can all rally around as another feather in the "Big Blue gives zero fucks about us" cap. Most of us in his situation would punch at the soonest opportunity, middle fingers in the air. But knowing the author, he will take the kick in the junk and keep moving forward because he cares about Mother Blue and legitimately wants to fix this cluster fuck and leave it in a better place.
  8. Doesn't matter. With the amount of people turning down school, every alternate and even some not on the alternates list will be going. If you're not punching, and you're not a total shit bag, you're going to school.
  9. Is having a beard worth not getting this position? The people on the board might not give a fuck, but they also might. Why not just remove the doubt and shave for one day?
  10. Impossible. We're either deployed, TDY, or separated. OG/CC would be the only person there.
  11. I know a handful of 11M's that got orders cancelled to T-38 assignments last week because of the previously discussed 2-star's decision. [obligatory]"And they wonder why people are bailing at record rates"[/obligatory]
  12. I'm talking about a week just to in-process and do whatever else I may need to do.
  13. How early is too early to take mil leave? Is there such a thing? I got hired at a major and will start training right when I begin terminal leave. I also Palace Chased but won't have a chance to in-process with my unit until after airline training. Would it be frowned upon to finish training, then immediately drop mil leave to head up to my AFRC unit to in-process? Is there an unwritten limit on how much mil leave I should take in this instance considering I'd still be on IOE and probation?
  14. Question for the DD-214 worksheet on vMPF... Block 6 states: "Reserve Obligation Termination Date" For us going to the AFRC, is this when our Palace Chase reserve obligation expires? It seems straight forward, but when you click the little question mark next to it, it goes on about your MOS and DD 2-1-2 or something (I can't remember the form). Any help?
  15. Is there a backstory here? Has she failed multiple PT tests or something?
  16. Thanks Marty. I'll give Jon a call tomorrow morning.
  17. Is there such thing as a mortgage pre-approval just to see what amount I could be approved for? I don't have a specific house in mind, but I do have a dollar amount that I'd like to shoot for. I'm an AD Major that's separating soon with an airline CJO and hoping to move in the near future. @Marty - Trident Home Loans, I used you guys for my last refinance and had a great experience.
  18. Inside of 30 days from final or tentative approval? And are you talking actual separation date or start of terminal? @Pretty_Darn_Good
  19. Congrats! Let us know how your separation date request goes. I'm still sitting at tentative approval and haven't requested a new sep date yet.
  20. Not to be a dick, but isn't think what we've been wanting? Do we want people promoting based on awards and strats or do we want them promoting based on job performance? Not saying your job performance sucks, I'm sure it doesn't, but I thought we we've had our pitchforks out for years because the Christmas party planner/Wing FGO OTY/Strat queen was getting promoted over dudes that might have a better overall record.
  21. I actually want to move my sep date since we're so close at this point and I'd be missing out on over half of my terminal leave. So does changing the sep date require a call to AFPC or can you annotate it on the 1288 (like mentioned earlier in this thread)? I don't see where on the 1288 it'd be annotated.
  22. Can anyone explain how I go about requesting a new separation date once I get the tentative approval email? Once I get the final approval I'll be past my proposed sep date. Apparently I'm the first guy in the history of my base to do this because everyone seems perplexed when I say I want to change it.
  23. I saw your post so I just logged into CMS and it looks like the O-6 approved mine as well. However, I can't see the signed "approval instrument" on my application because the link isn't working on my laptop. Did you get an email or are you just going off CMS/vMPF? I'm about to drive my happy ass to work to print this fucking thing out!
