  1. One of the greatest things about the ANG is being in the same place for all 20 years. That said, there are plenty of opportunities to go around, especially in the coming years as the airline hiring ramps up. Our OG receives opportunities all the time for random assignments. There are even more to be found if you seek them out. Not long ago, they were seeking volunteers to go to EUCOM for a 3-year AD assignment just to fill a pilot position (ie...not a staff job/embassy job/etc...). There are other opportunities for 30 day, 90 day, 180 day and 365 day assignments here and there. I was lo
  2. 29 yrs in the ANG, visited over 50 countries, worked in an Eastern European Embassy for 2 years. ANG HQ is in DC area with plenty of opportunity for assignment. You can do volunteer assignments in all places you listed. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app

  4. It may be doable if you have a ANG gig to supplement. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  5. I was in a similar position, but I have around 800-900 PIC from my Herk days. Due to BRAC, I was RPAs for almost 7 yrs, got pulled for a SQ/CC gig. My reward was I got to go to a manned flying squadron afterwards. Went thru an AC program but was a CP because that is what we do in the ANG. The proverbial switch flipped and I retired 1 Apr. Got hired at Atlas and start in a week. I didn’t get enough recency (100 hrs in 12 months, had 75) so I wasn’t really competitive for a major. I’m really looking forward to flying the 747 and building 121 time. I’m damn happy to be flying again. I know Atlas
  6. Do the -46 guys tell R model stories? Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  7. I will not miss any of that bs at all. I am thoroughly enjoying civilian life. Already on my 2nd beard, had to shave first one for an interview. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  8. This is actually great advice. After 29 years, as a pilot recruiter/hirer, as a DO, and as a SQ/CC- I have given this advice countless times. I have always said the answer is no if you don’t ask. Make them tell you no, don’t tell yourself. Apply where you want and let the chips fall as they may. Best of luck!

  10. Their bulgogi was surprisingly good, but that bulgogi food truck in front of the BX was awesome. Too bad they didn’t cater to us night shift bubbas. Enjoyed it Scooter and hope all goes well on your sandbox trip! Looking good on the other side stuff. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  11. Been a member of the check of the month club for 14 days now and I don’t miss that bs at all. I did a lot of ignoring stupid bs my last few months before retirement. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
