  1. In accordance with 10 US Code 1370, 2(A), you have to serve three years to “retire” as an O-5. SecDef can waive to 2 years. Now what gets read on the retirement script…that’s just a Word document Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  2. Former workmate (MQ-9 pilot on staff), 5th look at O-5, was picked up. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  3. Hopefully he’s current and qualified, and the War he’s itching for will get him some Air Medals for his O-6 board. Silver lining, at least he’s not screeching about Trump as much lately Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  4. Everyone with a security clearance better be ready for updated “training” on improper gift acceptance. In all seriousness, WTAF. A Secret Service agent let a dude who gave him money act like one…extremely distressing. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  5. The Watts Barr nuclear plant in Tennessee is most recent construction in US. Began in 1973, has two reactors, Unit 1, completed in 1996, and Unit 2, completed in 2015.; 23 and 43 years respectively. Nuclear is a great option, but not a quick one.

  6. Your dedication is admirable, but realistically unless you get a DP on your PRF, the statistical chance is in the low single digits. Talk to your SR, they should be honest with you about their allocation numbers. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  7. I’m confused, why is being a Paul Harvey fan a bad thing? Is that a new “White Nationalist” dogwhistle… It’s interesting watching the path Adam has traveled. His anti-Trump stance earned him a redistricted seat from the D’s, but I’m sure he’ll be the resident MSNBC conservative tallking head. Hopefully he’s current and qualified to go participate in his no-fly zone. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  8. That’s quite the conundrum you present. You either blindly trust that Big Pharma has 100% public interest as their motive, or divorce yourself completely from their products. I don’t know if you’ve read or watched, but the Hulu series Dopesick (and book of same name), illustrated how corrupt the FDA and Pharma can be. But that fact that within one year, the “vaccine” has made them record breaking profits, and the messaging now is three shots + booster. I’m not the smartest man in the world, but something doesn’t pass the smell test. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  9. I’m not arguing any of those issues. I’m pointing out that we have mNRA “vaccines” that are not even a year into usage, and has morphed from a two shot series, into three, or four required. All the while, the Pharma companies, have legal immunity over injuries related to the administration or use of their products to treat or protect against Covid, until 2024. We have ZERO data on the long term affects of these treatments. You might trust Pfizer and Moderna, I don’t.
  10. I think they’ve got a good track record of being open and honest about the side effects of a drug which they’ve made billions off. I mean OxyContin “non-addictive” release was along time ago in 1996, I’m sure Big Pharma has changed since then…
  11. Wrong, he received 81,284,000 (most votes in history). But we must ensure we protect voting rights… Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  12. I think doctors should be able to refuse care for individuals who are injured by not wearing a seatbelt while driving, or are intoxicated and cause an accident. Hey they knew the risk, and chose to not “protect” themselves Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  13. Get a copy of your medical records, and find out who the base VSO is. They can assist you with filing your VA disability claim. If you have between 180 days and 90 days left in the Air Force, they can work to file what's called a Benefits at Delivery Discharge (BDD) claim. Essentially you do all the work, and then immediately upon retirement receive any VA disability pay. You will have to do a SHPE exam with Flight Medicine, this is a separate appointment than your annual flight physical. You can use is at you VA disability exam, however, I personally choose to not do that.
  14. Steve Coll is a fantastic author! He wrote another great book called Ghost Wars; about the CIA's involvement in the covert wars in Afghanistan that fueled Islamic militancy and gave rise to bin Laden's al Qaeda. I'll definitely check out Directorate S.
  15. One of the challenges we have as a nation, is our love of freedom, and assuming everyone in the world wants our version of society. Do I think there’s anything better, no. But if your country has never known “Western Democracy”, you won’t embrace it like we do. I’m my opinion, the civilian and military leadership, ascribe to that US dominate worldview, and it shapes the decisions they support. We need to divorce ourselves from endlessly “spreading democracy” across the globe. And just perform, limited and targeted ops. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
