  1. It looks like the officer housing on Hamilton Ave was renovated. How is it? Just curious: Can anyone tell me if those kitchens have gas or electric stoves?
  2. For current Nav's that get a UPT slot... Are the Class I physicals always done at Wright-Patt? Or has that requirement eased up so that you can get them at another base?
  3. Thanks, CH47. In your opinion, how can a Guardsman get a 2020 UPT slot... if at all?
  4. Rumor control: I heard that active duty pulled (not sure how long ago) all of the 2020 UPT slots allocated for the ANG. Looking to see if anyone knows if that's true or not.
  5. Question for those in the know: Will a Guardsman that is from a heavy unit be able to go to Sheppard for UPT? Can be done? Slim chance? No chance?
  6. Is anyone here familiar with Guardsmen going full time to AFIT, or to an AF-sponsored civilian university program, for a Master's degree program while on full-time orders?
  7. When on Title 32 AGR orders for over 30 days, is your BAH based on your unit's zip code? Or on your residence zip code? Or something else?
  8. 3 x U-28 1 x AC-130U 1 x JSTARS 1 x EC-130 3 x F-15E Plus 2 x Guard C-130's Nice!
  9. I was just told that 140 days or more in the Guard constitutes a PCS... versus 180 days for Active Duty. I'll check the JFTR, but can anyone verify that is what they have actually seen?
  10. Questions about the C-130 initial qual courses have you start at Little Rock for 4 months (TDY), and then have you go elsewhere to finish up: Do they authorize you the travel days, and you bring your own car? Or does the AF authorize you a rental car? And, being there only 4 months, any specific recommendations (or Wing restrictions) for lodging?
  11. Are some of those attacks using CBU? Or is that just what the strafe looks like?

  13. Good luck. If your experience is anything close to the experience of my close relative, you'll find the Guard has no idea what to do with you. You need to be VERY proactive. I wish you the best. And know the regs.
  14. What are some opinions on the next 4 years at Channel Islands and Moffett?
  15. If anyone approaching graduation is on here, would you send out what the grad schedule is the week of graduation? I'm guessing there are tours for the families, and other possible events. And having the schedule for the day of graduation would be helpful too. Thanks.
  16. I was looking for the graduation dates for the FY16 UCT classes. However, I was told that they tend to "float" and won't be set until a few weeks prior. That contradicts other sources told me the AF sets the graduation dates from the start, and they don't "float". Can anyone shed light on this? And/or post the FY 16 grad dates?
  17. Which makes it "interesting" for the handful of non-priors in each AMS class. "What are you DOING??!!!" "Sir, I don't know!" "WHY NOT??!! Sir... I've never marched before!"

  19. I'm told CSO candidates going through the Pueblo IFT syllabus spend more time in reading maps/charts than the pilot syllabus. If anyone has more detail, would you post it? Are they using Sectional Charts? What altitude (AGL) are the flights done at? Is there anything else significant that we should take note of? Thanks!
  20. That's pretty fast, whiskey. A relative of mine was 13 months from swear in until AMS. It will be 6 months from AMS graduation until the start of IFS, unless orders get changed.
  21. Finance Guy: Due to my unit dropping the ball, they didn't get my GTC card in a timely manner. The RA put a rush order on GTC which was $20. I filed the voucher and Finance won't pay the rush fee. Is this legit?
  22. Next question: when you PCS to Pensacola, can you put some of your possessions in storage at gov't expense, instead of having them brought to your on-base residence? If you can store them, what options are available, if any? - store in Pensacola - store near your home unit - store them near your home of record
  23. Congrats to the 101 Second Lieutenants that were commissioned today at AMS from Class 15-02. I watched from the grandstands. Starting with 15-03, they stated will begin to integrate Guard and Active Duty into the same class in a kind of beta test.
