SNAP (1/4)



  1. Maybe they'll add a hatch so the crews can drop piss bags on the enemy.
  2. I looked it up, he has TWO air medals thank you very much. I just hope he continues the tradition of his predecessor and focuses on social justice issues within AFSOC.
  3. I would assume, like most things AFSOC, it was about not getting taken care of career-wise. The command is good at grooming officers on their HPO list but not so much the middle majority that continuously deploys. I dont think U28s are alone in that matter.
  4. Joint warfare OLMP checks masters, IDE (ACSC), and JPME I. If you start the leadership track as a captain, you can wait until O4-select and switch to joint warfare to get those credits as well.
  5. So what the heck is a 2nd tier staff job and how do I sign up for this anonymous major thing?
  6. Never heard the WIC thing... that's incredibly disheartening when tactics take a backseat to optics and politics. Its too bad Elton didn't take his place. As bad as clovis is, Elton did everything in his power to make the base and community better for the unfortunate members stuck there.
  7. Morale took a big hit when the current big boss handpicked every sq cc in AFSOC based on personal loyalty. This has resulted in leadership that prioritizes falling inline and not biting the hand that feeds instead of advocating for their squadrons. I dont see it getting better anytime soon.
  8. Intrusive leadership that holds people accountable just sounds like toxic leadership with extra steps.
  9. I have a feeling that they will interpret the regulations to hold a continuation board at 2 years into the 5 year window. Otherwise, the vast majority of majors are in sanctuary at the 6th year look. If this is the case, the major rank will become heavy and promotion rates to major will have to fall. I also think AFPC has been intentionally quiet on the subject because they have no idea how to handle it.
  10. The difference between major and ltcol pay at 20 is about 12%. With flyers being pretty much autocontinued, you really have to debate whether those extra hoops are worth jumping through.
  11. Nah, I dont want to hurt anyone's feelings.
  12. Sounds like there are going to be a lot less strats overall since you have to pair functional with a rank strat.
  13. I'm not trying to agree with the bitter buffalo that showed up but did you subtract out the missed retirement payments for 5 years? For example, its about 300k for an O5 from 20 - 25 years.
  14. How much have you talked to your family about it? Are they good with 3 more moves? Are they okay with potentially seeing you even less than before? There are other things you can be doing while you wait for the airlines. Remember to add your pension to any job you take outside the air force. If you stay in, you're essentially giving that up. On the other hand, you sound like a pretty good dude and we could use more commanders like that. Staff is hit or miss. I have had staff jobs I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy and jobs that were great deals. I think it comes down to the impact on your family. Both are good options - good luck!
  15. Honestly, we could use a few more senior leaders that bounced back from issues early on rather than the risk adverse ones we get.
