  1. Provide location & general -- or is that “too political.”
  2. Is your wife hot? You brought her up, so...
  3. Saw her naked as an Lt -- I've nothing but good things to say.
  4. Just to clear up the constitutional misunderstanding here...innocent until proven guilty (6th amendment guarantee of a fair trial) applies in a court of law. The police, local populous, person's neighbors, wing commander, random people on baseops.net, etc. are not holding a criminal trial. We are free to use risk mitigation and reasonable logic.
  5. I 7-day opted out of SOS. Big Blue wouldn't let me go, but I got "orders" to SOS and it had the 7-day op at the bottom. I checked the box, and it somehow sailed through.

    I drove 1000+ miles in one day in my gas-powered truck and was able to pick up my kid at school when the flights cancelled. A Tesla did pass me once...

    Navy Federal new car rates are over 1% less than USAA right now so hoped you considered more than just the awesome .5% off whatever bad rate they offered in your sweet deal. You might also compare insurance rates as you can certainly do better than USAA. I pay less than you for all of my cars combined (about $125K worth of vehicles) and bet I got better coverage ($50 deductible, etc.) Every loan/insurance sales person makes it sound like they have a great deal but you need to make direct comparisons.

    Wait...what? Maybe I shouldn't close my last account.

    Switch to Liberty Mutual for auto and Nationwide for home. I found it doe snot save to bundle as every ad says. I've been very happy with each. Only minor claims (windshield for auto and hail for home), but both were WAY better than USAA for customer service. I have substantially better coverage at about 40% less overall than USAA. I find it hard to believe USAA is better at rates/coverage than anybody. I did a cost comparison for all major insurance companies and found USAA was by far the highest rate on everything. For finances, I switch all my managed investments to Schwab and Fidelity. I used these to get a one-year comparison. So far I like Schwab best. I have not yet switched my regular accounts out of USAA but likely getting ready to go to Navy Feb after doing my research.
  10. Also not "latest", but I like Red Flag: The Ultimate Game (1981). My dad was was flying F-4s there at the time so maybe I'm biased.
  11. They don't. The clueless become generals. I never had a non-flying job in my career. When selected for O-7 (and got a similar speech), I said I had two requirements to accept; 1) must be a flying gig and 2) of course it can't be in D.C. (duh). Hence I'm not a general.
  12. Wait -- what? Are the hookers and blow not legit either? This is ridiculous! Why even have a clearance?
