Gray Beard

Gray Beard (4/4)



  1. No, def not toxic. I’ve been in shoes similar to you in a deployed environment. At a certain point we are appointed with executing the mission. I’d look at any of my ACs sideways if they cancelled due to WX being 300-3/4 when mins are 200-1/2. Just go out there and get er done dude. However, like you, I was sensitive about having my AC’s backs if they did make the tough call even if I disagreed with said decision. Tinker, different story. Crews were not safe to fly and got their butts chewed for ORM. Not to mention it was a training environment. That’s a huge foul on part of said OG. Let’s cultivate a climate where ACs are empowered but at the same time are willing to lean forward and get the mission done in the grey zone.
  2. No, Hacker was making the point that if you lead a squadron tasked with going into combat, or a wing, etc. you better be qualified in the primary mission otherwise you lack credibility. WSO leading a strike Eagle unit, absolutely. SOC douche leading a unit that constantly needs IP supervision? That’s what Hacker is talking about.
  3. Said feedback probably reviewed by MG Wills, the sales pitch guy for this disaster. Love the guy, he’s one of the few GOs willing to engage with peons like us; but he’s a company man in this race to the bottom. I’ll go out on a limb and say China doesn’t shortchange it’s training for expediency. Standing by spears.
  4. Congrats, I may or may not know the challenges you faced first hand, especially with leadership. You were always willing to mentor the younger guys and shoot the shit with us. You’re one of the good ones.
  5. Just out of curiosity, are you currently in an ops squadron directly seeing the current UPT product ?
  6. I knew it!! Fuck that guy!! Remember how a social media campaign torched that 2 star who called those supporting the A-10 traitors and subsequently got fired? Let’s hope the same heat gets brought on this DB. Don’t cave, if you are not rested to fly for a BS ex, don’t! If you get persecuted, go to your IG. Worst case, your senator Tom Cotton has your back. Combat?..different story. Either way, LTs start the corn machine because I can’t wait to see this unfold.
  7. Hope this blows up on social media and this OG/CC gets publicly raked across the coals and fired by ACC leadership backed up by the CSAF. No offense to my ABM bros but is this OG/CC an ABM that has zero concept of aviation hazards and fatigue? Unless you’re in combat, an ABM not being able to do their job doesn’t kill lives.
  8. Understood! Ultimately you got to do what’s best for you and your family. However with that little time till your ADSC expires I’d ride it out. Airline hiring will continue for several years. On the other hand, multiple dudes were primed to get out pre COVID then got screwed when the job they expected wasn’t there. Those that asked not to be promoted (APZ) were forced out. Too much risk there. You could consider palace chase, if a guard unit really wants you then the paperwork on the other side works itself out (promotion waiver), of course big blue has to let you go. Just some things to consider that’s all.
  9. Covid hit, and their job on the outside no longer existed..bit a few folks in the ass who did what you are suggesting. Just my opinion, I wouldn’t turn down promotion. There are other avenues to still get out. What does your commitment look like?
  10. No we haven’t moved to socialism, yet. That’s what we are trying to prevent. Let’s not pretend the two clowns sitting in the White House don’t have said ambitions (okay one probably doesn’t but he’s too stupid to realize his handlers pushing him that direction until he serves his purpose.) Let’s not pretend that the “Squad” and their wonderful entourage don’t espouse said views with a significant amount of youth popularity. How many young ignorant Bernie supporters were there? So yes, we will continue to call the fringe left out on their BS. This country is too precious for social experimentation with a poli-economic system that has killed thousands of people. They only need to succeed once, there is no saving our country after that.
  11. On the surface I agree with your notion that we need to move past Trump in order to regain credibility as a party let alone defeat whichever lunatic the Dems put up (probably Kamala). While there are many nut jobs on the right, we have to ask “why” said old people cling to Trump. Maybe it’s because he was one of the only politicians that connected with boring, maybe rural, everyday Americans? Many of these hard right folk are decent Americans that just want to be left alone and have someone that will fight for them. Whoever the Republican nominee is, must be able to connect with these everyday normal Americans. They aren’t going away.
  12. He’s not wrong you know- but more strategically danger alludes to the fact that young kids today care more about woke crap than actual science and the advancement of technology and man kind, the things you and I probably cared about growing up.
  13. Absolutely..Died to BAF runs are still happening in the MAF. Dude we are still going into Somalia every couple weeks even though “we pulled out” post Trump tweet. The military industrial complex will never let us leave those shitholes.
  14. https://dailycaller.com/2021/07/08/mark-green-critical-race-theory-air-force-academy-mark-milley/ Hopefully this isn’t just a PR stunt and they mean business. The Air Force’s Marxist and racist teachings have congressional visibility and not in a good way. Enough of this racist and hypocritical nonsense!!
  15. I was at KAF from Feb 13 to Aug 13..I can attest to everything you said. Unfortunately said shitty training cost us 4 lives, amongst many others. Like others have alluded to..for what? Good riddance, fuck that place.
