  1. TCU had no shot. Recruiting rankings matter. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  2. That checks with what I’m hearing as well. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  3. Yes. We are getting TAMP. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  4. I question why anyone outside of 5 or so years to retirement would want to stick around full time to be honest. I’m sure every unit and every airframe is different. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  5. SocialD and mp5g, are your orders title 10? Our orders are title 10 Contingency so they look exactly like deployment orders. Just trying to figure out why you guys wouldn’t be USERRA exempt like us. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  6. Not sure. I know all our days are sent from AMC to “pay the bill”. I heard that AMC decided to fund it this way through these type of orders rather than allocating AGR assets to the ONE mission. As far as our local manning I have watched it go from feast to famine and back to feast. It’s a buyers market. Last year we had guys on orders for the whole year, only coming off ONE orders for a quick deployment, then back to ONE. For the first time since pre-COVID we are going to have guest help because we don’t have enough volunteers. Going to be an interesting year! Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  7. It is crazy how these orders are all over the place. I was talking to another base that all of their guys get full per diem while on ONE. At my base you have to live >75 miles away from base. Then from what I understand the fighter guys on ONE are all AGR? Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  8. Good info. Our orders are ONE Alert and USERRA Exempt but not statutory. Would have been nice to get the $35-25k, but still if I can grab some $15k bonuses for my guys, every little bit helps. It’s getting tougher as the airlines start to get more desperate for bodies. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  9. Thanks Brabus! The only problem with Tier 1 is it says it’s for AGR or Statutory Tour Only. Does anyone know what a Statutory Tour is? Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  10. Thanks SocialD Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  11. Before I get someone’s guess at my base, I figured I would reach out to the bros on here. We have a Title-10 mission at my base and we get fed man days from AMC and TACC quarterly through the M4S system. Last year I had guys that were on orders the whole year (365 days+) and it got me thinking, if or how could I get them a pilot bonus. Has anyone had any experience getting a traditional pilot on full time title-10 orders eligible for the bonus? I figure this could potentially help retain some guys if I can figure out a way to put some extra $ in their pocket. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  12. I think at SWA I am allowed to vote. Someone correct me if I am wrong. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app

    Back when I lived in Florida, they wouldn’t even provide insurance for my house in the middle of the state. I couldn’t get any further from the coast. I switched everything at that point. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app

  15. I’ve got nothing against the guy and really don’t know a whole lot about him but it seems all he does is grandstand. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
