  1. PTDY can be used used for job hunting and/or house hunting. If you have a job, then you need to house hunt. I belive its rule 4 on the PTDY table ( i dont remember the reg but thats the info on my terminal PTDY pprwrk). As its been explained to me, because this same rule only authorizes either house or job hunting, actually working the job isnt allowed. You can work on terminal leave.
  2. I don't care about OPRs and resumes, my point was that the Reserves seen to be going as crazy about PT history as AD.
  3. I was approved for VSP in this last round and during my outprocessing was required to speak to reserve recruiter on base. He told me I could still Palace Chase, but would need my entire PT history, last three OPRs, and a bio in that order for any job I put in for. Maybe I'll go ANG...
  4. I think I have a bead on the conflict. From AFPC's website http://www.afpc.af.mil/library/gibill/ 6 years AD + four years ADSC = 10 yrs of service Also http://www.afpc.af.mil/library/gibill/faq.asp I'd contact the AFPC/DPSIT folks and start there.
  5. JQP is reporting on FB that folks who've been released under VSP and have already left AD aren't being paid the separation pay. For those who left under the FY 14 program, have you all received yours?
  6. I would not. Part of the point of VSP is to waive ADSCs. They are processing your app based on your current ADSCs, which determine where you are in the pecking order. If you add an ADSC at this point you run the risk of one of the following: 1. You are already approved but you havent recieved word. Adding an ADSC effectively nullifies your package at this point. 2. You package isnt approved, but adding more ADSC time bumps you below the cut line. Maybe if you can talk to someone in the separations branch at AFPC you could find out the unknowns and make and informed decision, but I think based on both RIF threads here at BODN that seems unlikely.
  7. Perhaps a change of culture start with AFPC...go check out the Promotion and PRF thread where you can see in the O-5 promotion statistics that AFPC is still tracking AAD's. If AAD's aren't required until O-6, why track who did or didn't have one and whether or not they did or didn't make it?
  8. You should go find the exec rather than figure out whether missing the suspense matters or not.
  9. As far as I know, the only "commitment" is the IRR time associated with the SOU you need to sign. This. Get your application in ASAP for your leadership to sign off on, deadlines coming.
  10. Everyone else took VSP or PC and they need anyone left who's qualified to fly the mission...
  11. Yes, new updated RIF matrix dated 11 Jun. Only thing that jumped out at me was on the red/blue slide, everyone in the '87 year group went blue. I don't expect many readers here will be affected by that....
  12. Come on now, this guys credentials are impressive. As an Army infantryman assigned to the Alaska ANG, he ranks right up there with my D/L instructors from ACSC. Myopic viewpoint? Check. Quasi-relavent background with no real world experience cited? Check. Condescending tone and overly emotional arguments compensating for a lack of substance and reason? Check. Edit: Just to show how well researched this article is (he claims no FW A/C have been lost since 2001), check out this story. I'd like to see anything else land when shot up this badly. Plane landed but was a loss. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kim_Campbell_(pilot)
  13. Did they update PSDM 14-38? The 02 May dated copy required 1 yr TIG as of 1 Oct of this year. Edit: I just checked MyPers and the current FY15 PSDM is 14-38, still dated 02 May. Anyone with less than 1 yr TIG as of the board convening date (1 Oct) is ineligible for the RIF.
  14. I didn't see a new FY15 PC program when I checked MyPers on Thursday. Doesn't mean they won't have one.
  15. Updated FY15 RIF slide posted to MyPers. I saw a lot of chatter on the FY14 thread about 11B's, they are closed across the board. 11M's closed 2001-2006.
  16. Old news. I'm looking for the PSDM that 14-38 references as the guidance for the VSP window to open tomorrow. As usual, AFPC does not fail to disappoint on the promise to meet a suspense. Edit: Ok just checked, new FY15 VSP and TERA PSDMs are on MyPers. Only looked at the VSP program, basically a clone of the FY14 VSP with the same ADSC waivers, etc. As bjax pointed out, the documents all refer to the RIF slides, but they are still dated 02 May. Good luck all.
  17. Any bets on when AFPC releases the PSDMs for the FY15 VSP seeing as tomorrow the new window opens?
  18. No, but if you have any expectation to be taken seriously in your complaints to any governmental official you need to have your facts squared away.
  19. AFPC is not a major command, its a field operating agency.
  20. I don't think so. In reality, the Force Shaping thread is really about cutting people. This, in LtGen Cox's words, is about retainment.
  21. Thats what happened to me...except thanks to the ridiculous TIG requirement I'm not eligible for the FY15 RIF/VSP even though about two thirds of my year group is.
  22. I think the holdup is tied to funding issues. FY14 only has so much in funding against it for VSP, not enough to clear the entire list of VSP applicants. While AFPC had a rack and stack to determine which officers would be let go in a specific AFSC, I do not believe they had such a rack and stack ready for determining cross AFSC priorities. As such, they probably don't have a clue who to get rid of when looking against all officers who've applied.
