SNAP (1/4)



  1. True, but the hypocrisy is even more highlighted when you fire someone in the exact same command billet that you’ve held. Sorry we broke the AF boys. At least the grass is greener on the other side.
  2. So Kwast fired Velino for the same UPT shenanigans that have been happening since the inception of the Air Force? Guess what, the same $h!t happened when he was the 47th OG/CC 15 years ago, and he was a willing participant!
  3. YMMV, but I found the Emerald Coast interview prep to be well worth the money, as did others in my Sqdn. Granted the current airline hiring environment is very permissive, but I got hired at my #1 choice on the first crack. The prep class I attended was 95% military dudes, and I think that everyone was a little shocked at how differently civilian companies perceive answers to interview questions. A tweak here and there may be the difference between the CJO or a TBNT. Technique only.
  4. Oh it will take a little more than that...

    Does Springfield have an official military discount, similar to the Glock one?
  6. So that is why we get HFP for landing there. I thought it was for dodging the goats and dogs that always cross the runway.
  7. I don't believe they would give a 717 type. The 717 designator is now used for the Boeing version of the DC-9.
  8. One downside to rolling your funds into the TSP is that there are only a few investment choices offered. An IRA from Fidelity/Vanguard/etc. would give you a lot more options.

    How about Casa Salchicha (Sausage House)? I think you should save the 600 count linens for yourself and get some latex/vinyl sheets for those beds.
  10. Exactly. Just in case I don't perform the Four Engine Flameout Boldface in time, I want the wife and baby(on the way) to have sufficient funds to live on. Never underestimate how much you need or may need in the future. I have no problem paying the yearly premium, it means I made it through another year! For the younger and single dudes, it may seem like a waste of money, but I would look into getting a policy asap. You can save some serious coin by locking in when you are young. You never know when a health problem might make you ineligible for coverage. My 6.9 cents, FWIW.
  11. SGLI is a good deal, especially for flyers. I have an additional $300K from USAA. It's a 30 year term, no war or aviation clause, for about $45 a month.
