  1. Thank you. This was supposed to be simple, but ended up being slightly more complicated. 2 surgeries and (so far) one round of Radioactive Iodine. Find out next week if I am finally done and can work on getting my medical back. Will post that process later, when it is complete, to help others. Several people, both AF and Army I was in Afghanistan with have been diagnosed with the same "interesting" (Doctor's words not mine) Thyroid cancer. What do you think the VA said? Not service connected. Will also post the results of that battle when it concludes.... in 20 years. Go to the doctor every year. If you don't like to do that at least have blood work done. My cancer was found by accident, never would have been found at all until it was to late if my Family Doctor hadn't noticed something in my blood work that just didn't look right to him.
  2. I was diagnosed with the thyroid cancer the same month Pyro posted that article. He was very supportive and helpful.
  3. You can use you Post 911 GI Bill for any flight training you want as long as it is Part 141/142. I have yet to find a qualifying school for the Seaplane rating in the Northwest. Lost of schools you can get extra type ratings.
  4. no, he said "almost", I have no problem with that.
  5. Yes, the promised land where the grass is greener! http://youtu.be/DXmWQG0j8Gc
  6. "And the Doctor said.. Rectum? Damn near killed him!"
  7. You should watch where you put you CAC, that will solve most of your problems. The 500 error is a strange one that comes and goes and is usually not tied to the email address. I had one whith no address on it and it worked. Best guess would be to have the CAC workers at the AD base change the email. If that doesn't work try the Google chrome browser, worked for my to get to DCO.
  8. Funny how rumors get started. Where the fuck did you hear this? No, the AF never did any such study. Gen Selva wrote a paper when he was at ACSC saying that they should get rid of flight pay and bonuses. Then put 1 Million Dollars in an escrow account when you graduate UPT. It collects interest over your career and you only get it if you finish out your 20. If you separate early it is GONE! That would be cheaper.
  9. They are overmanned. Lots of retirements, but the line for people wanting in is longer than the one going out.
