  1. What’s wrong with the AF? https://www.af.mil/News/Article-Display/Article/3628675/slife-promoted-to-general-assumes-afs-second-highest-military-position/
  2. www.biffsunicornfartpowereddildos.com
  3. CV-22? Article says it was Marines. Damn.
  4. If you're still in NWF and he's into robotics, I'd recommend touching base with the good folks at IHMC in P-cola. They have a few internship opportunities for high schoolers that would help smooth his path. Also, they're an amazing group of nerds to work with and have an awesome lab.
  5. No kidding. He's such a dog faced pony soldier.
  6. Same article, no paywall - https://news.yahoo.com/old-again-air-force-special-201159107.html A few more interesting tidbits: "Going forward, Bauernfeind wants to use the first four years differently. As he sees it, airmen would spend up to two years in initial qualification training before reaching their special ops squadron. Once there, they’d get up to 18 months of training time to learn more about their mission and the special operations culture before deploying." "Other tweaks, like dropping a requirement that students learn a particular type of landing that has never been used in combat, are streamlining the C-130 syllabus as well. And adding more simulators and virtual reality software can free up aircraft to fly combat missions instead of being tied up in training at home."
  7. They warned us the plane was stealthy. Turns out they were right.
  8. I blame Trump. He would be impeached for this if it happened while he was in office. He probably will still be impeached for it anyway. /s
  9. Many good people sacrificed their lives for you to enjoy the freedom of your incoherent and confused narrative. These included many young conservative Christian men, whom you do not have the privilege to bin into your narrow perspective. Those young conservative Christian men had, and still have, a valued place in military aviation. These Christians lock arms with believers and nonbelievers alike to defend the rights of people who believe like them, along with academic bloviates who shout arrogance only rivaled by their ignorance from the sidelines. I’ll leave you with this quote from Jim Downey... What you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.
  10. For your reading pleasure. Here's the best knowledge base I've found. https://www.reddit.com/r/VeteransBenefits/wiki/index/ Pursuit of your waiver just more fully documents your symptoms. DoD and VA are totally different entities and look at your medical conditions through different lenses. Keep going to doctor's appointments. Keep seeking care. Keep documenting symptoms. File with the VA 90-180 days (closer to 180 is better) before your date of separation, and include all the conditions that you're suffering from.
  11. Super controversial opinion. Hatch green chili corn is better than jalapeño.
  12. The challenge of avoiding stupidity in training is ignorance. You don’t know how stupid you are until you become experienced enough to realize how stupid you were. Thinking back on UPT, it’s terrifying. I have incredible respect for the instructors who face the potential demise of ignorant stupidity each day, and face it with a smile.
  13. I’ve known a few mobility pilots and one AFSOC pilot who crossed to fighters. Without exception, they all did T38s and the ones from my own UPT class that crossed were near the top of our class (very few fighter drops when I went to UPT). You are already flying T1s. Fighters are not your future. Do your job. Do it well. Your good deal opportunities will come from a combination of: 1. Luck 2. Timing 3. Sponsorship 4. Relationships 5. Reputation 6. Skill Often, but not always, in that order.
  14. No. Pick those planes because you want to fly those missions. I can't speak to ACC, but if you pick AFSOC you are picking AFSOC.
