  1. %of mild condition cases hasn’t budged, even before the vax was available.
  2. I’m curious about the new 5 year look as well. From what I’ve seen, it’s not official yet. From a message I sent to AFPC. For my sake, I hope it’s still 2 look board
  3. Good day all, Hope the experts on here can chime in. AFI 36-2501 has me all spun around. I know its a long post, but thanks in advance for those that take the time to read! My updated info: 1) ADSC 1: 30 Apr 2023 (Bonus) 2) ADSC 2: 31 Jul 2022 (PCS) 3) TAFMS: May 2000 (21+ years) I meet my 2nd look for O-5 in March 2022 (LAF-A). Following standard timeline, I should expect the results roughly 1 Jul 2022. Im looking at multiple options and cant get any answers from MPF, and trying to decide if I should write a letter to the board to not consider. If for some miracle I was promoted, I wouldn’t pin on til after im on terminal or already retired. I am also looking into applying for a best interest of the Air Force waiver for the ADSC’s to retire 1 Apr 2022, (prior to final bonus payout) Questions: 1. Would I even be offered continuation as I am retirement eligible? Everywhere that I read “critical skills”, seems to attach the meaning to a medical career field., and I cant find a list of “critical skills” more recent than FY11 in myPers. Which none mentioned any 11x career fields. 2. Is involuntary separation pay even offered, if you are retirement eligible? 3. If the board meets and I am in fact passed over a 2nd time, would I be “involuntarily” retired with ISP? Assuming continuation isn’t offered because im over 20 TAFMS? 7.9. Who is Eligible for Continuation. Based on the needs of the Air Force, SECAF determines eligibility criteria for continuation. 7.9.1. Generally, subject to SECAF approval, fully qualified captains and majors identified for separation because of twice failing promotion to the next higher grade are eligible, unless the officer: Can retire, or is in the retirement sanctuary, as a commissioned officer by the mandatory date of separation for the associated promotion board. EXCEPTION: Officers possessing a critical skill may be offered continuation beyond their mandatory retirement date. Individuals not selected, or those who decline the continuation offer, will revert to their previous sanctuary or retirement status. 7.11.2. Continue majors until the last day of the month in which he or she is eligible to retire as an officer (normally upon completion of 20 years of total active military service). Majors who possess critical skills may not be continued any longer than the last day of the month in which they complete 24 years of active commissioned service. EXCEPTION: Initially continue MC/DC majors for three years. Further continue MC/DC officers for 3-year periods until they are within 6 years of retirement. When MC/DC officers are within 6 years of retirement, continue them until the last day of the month in which they can retire as an officer. 7.11.3. Normally, the continuation period begins on the 1st day of the 7th month from the approval of the board results. For officers being further continued, the continuation period begins on the first day following the completion of their initial continuation period. For officers who are in the retirement sanctuary or retirement eligible, the continuation period normally begins on the first day following the 20-year DOS. 7.11.4. Twice-deferred officers who are offered selective continuation to normal (20 year) retirement and turn it down are not authorized to receive involuntary separation pay. 7.15. Continuation to Retirement Eligibility. For retirement purposes, continuation is to 20 years TAFMS
  4. Mind if I asked what career field your friend was in? I applied earlier this year and was denied for lack of justification. Thinking of trying this option again. Retirement eligible, and would be looking to pay back the last year of the contract.
  5. Just saw on MyPers that LAF O-5 board is scheduled for 1Mar22. Anyone have an idea of when they make the determination if the board will offer continuation or not?
  6. https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/ i like looking at this site. I don’t claim to research any of the numbers in depth, however the cases/deaths match, so I assume the recoveries do as well. The recoveries, the number you never see plastered all over the media. Also take a look at the closed cases as well as open cases. Of the 15.2 million active cases, 99.4% are mild and .6 severe, globally. Now I was following this site before the vaccines were released and in Jan. Mild cases were 99.6%
  7. Will they release before the board if it will be the 5-year look or 2-year and if continuation would be offered or not? If so, when would they release that info? 150 days prior, etc? Also, is the next LAF O-5 board expected to be same time frame as FY21 board? TIA
  8. Is there a typical timeframe before the O-5 promotion board next year that they would determine if the 5-year window will be implemented? Or how long before the board they determine if they will offer continuation? TIA
  9. I’m an 11M. I applied for a ADSC waiver to retire (prior-E)-Denied. Non-select for O-5, tasked with 6-month COVID deployment handing out vaccination information sheets.
  10. From my last discussion with AFPC they still have the twice passed over rule. It doesn’t make sense to me which is why I’m trying to find out from someone that’s on their 2nd look this board
  11. Just got the call-No-go for me 😂. Now 1 more non-select 🤞 here’s to hoping they don’t change the twice passed over rule next board. Funny thing is they denied my ADSC waiver to retire. Oh well. Best of luck to everyone out there
  12. I’m in a similar boat (no progression). Didn’t chase a “future” in the AF. Did what I loved, and completely happy with my results. Being prior-E I knew early my promotion opportunities would be capped unless I wanted to give more than 20. During my airline interviews, I was never asked about any of my office jobs. I did have plenty of flying stories though.
  13. Good deal. I believe I have a good understanding. My only ADSCs are PCS (Jul 2022), and Bonus (Apr 2023). Assuming it was this board, If I declined continuation, I would have to retire NLT 1 Jan 2022. If I accepted continuation to say 24 years (May 2024), then the 2 ADSCs would remain?
  14. Wait one minute. That’s only if you don’t have any existing ADSCs correct. I have a bonus ADSC that takes me to 2023.
  15. Thanks 14N. I’m prior-E and over 20 years. I never played the game and ready to accept my fate
  16. The answer ID 50695 (board results) appears to indicate they are still using twice passed over for continuation. When do you get official word if it’s offered? This is my first board, but comparison of the guys that were unfortunately not selected, I don’t stand a chance. TIA
  17. Never gave it much thought before but what is considered twice passed over? 1 IPZ + 1 APZ? Or 1 IPZ + 2 APZ? someone mentioned a couple years ago, it was the latter and got me thinking TIA
  18. I’m an AD 11M at CHS. I have a troop that is interested in applying for OTS. They cancelled the rated boards thru 2023 from what he’s heard. He’s now exploring the Reserves. Is the AFOQT required for Reserves and if hired, how long should he expect full time orders? TIA
  19. I’m currently “deployed” with a COVID vax team. I’m an 11M so I have no idea what I’m talking about. However we’ve administered just over 100k shots, mostly Pfizer, and I’d say there were about 20 people that have had issues during the 15-30 minute post-vax window. VAERS website has good info. About 5 have required ambulatory transport. Our vax rates dropped tremendously once we announced our J&J push. Quite a few people even left the building without getting it after talking to our medical providers. Godspeed!
  20. This! The matrix doesn’t have 11x, however there is a note on the matrix that states PC incurs a 1:1 commitment, even if you’re AFSC isn’t included in the program. However it may be to late for that option as they moved the close-out date to May 27ish.
  21. Good day all, looking into next years O-5 board, I fully expect to be passed over. I know the AFI says you must separate/retire NLT the first day of the seventh month. However I don’t recall seeing the minimum timeline. Assuming I pregamed as much as I could, is it possible to start terminal a week (for instance) after board results? Or is the expectation that you still give the 4 month notice? TIA
  22. Yeah I believe you’re right. I haven’t looked in the regs in a bit. I wouldn’t accept continuation if offered.
  23. Thanks for posting this for me to see. But it brings up some questions. My situation: Prior-E, 21 years of military service, over 10 years commissioned, ADSC 30 Apr 2023 I signed the 3 year bonus last year, knowing I have a high probability of being passed over. My first board, met this March and expecting 2nd non select next March-May’ish. Assuming the AF doesn’t go to a 5 year eligibility window next year, would I be able to keep the bonus payment that pays next April? since I’m already over 20, there is no “offering of continuation”, and would keep the payment since I’m not declining continuation. Does that passed the sanity check? TIA
