SNAP (1/4)



  1. Has anyone heard about interview invites going out for the 79th ARS at Travis AFB? Thanks!
  2. Hope everyone is doing well and staying healthy. Wanted to check here to see if anyone heard from the Texas ANG out of Fort Worth on their upcoming boards?
  3. Annnnnnd they no longer have a spot for me.....back to the drawing board.
  4. Following up on my own process here and hopefully it will help others. I contacted my Congressperson through their website and was able to eventually connect with a Congressional Liaison who submitted an inquiry on my behalf with the NGB/SG's office. I had to provide my MEPs paperwork and physical exams, clearance letters, and rehab report (this was a letter I wrote about my rehab process as I did all of it myself, and I also detailed by current level of physical activity). After 6 weeks, we received a response to the Congressional Inquiry that the NGB/SG Senior Branch Provider and Medical Director reviewed my case and determined they would recommend a waiver. I haven't connected yet with my unit on this-our last waiver attempt was 1 year ago and we haven't been in contact since as my recruiter thought there was no point to try a third waiver request (and I agreed based on 2 failed attempts)-but hopefully this will lead to the official waiver approval and next steps, finally. The big lesson here is to not take no for an answer, even if you have to go at it alone. Also, take care of your knees while you're young...
  5. Received my second waiver denial today for Chondromalacia and the Microfracture surgery. Submitted very detailed ortho letters and physical exams stating that my functionality is perfect, full strength, full mobility, no limitations, not likely to occur again or impact military service, etc. Sounds like chondromalacia alone might be OK but based on my research/experience and others on this forum the Microfracture surgery is the kicker. Open to any suggestions if people have them, but it appears like I'm at the end of the line for this journey. I also considered potentially looking into the other branches but it doesn't seem likely that we would get through since this is the general MEPs clearance that is holding up the process. Appreciate all the intel on this forum, been an avid follower over the last 1 1/2 years!

  7. I received the same around three weeks ago. Haven't heard back yet.
  8. Interviewed at a C-130 unit: Tell us about our unit. Tell us about yourself. Tell us about a time you...disagreed with a coworker/lost your cool. Talk about your leadership experience and how you dealt with leading people with more/less experience than you. I also had some more tailored questions based on my work history and resume, as I’m sure everyone does.. so you are a lawyer, why do you want to become a pilot/serve. One very tough scenario question, so the regs say no drinking within 12 hours of a flight, you are co-pilot, the captain is drunk at the 12 hour mark the night before a flight and showing no signs of slowing...what do you do? What are your plans post-seasoning? What are your plans to prepare for UPT? I’m not sure if I’ll be selected, but getting the interview and visiting the unit/seeing the planes was an incredible experience.
