Haven’t posted on here before, but I’m just looking for some advice. I’m dropping in a few weeks and dream sheets are due in a couple weeks. I’m graduating out of Sheppard and have been an average T-38 student. My mass score etc. is roughly middle of the pack, which in the current environment means I could be assigned a wide range of stuff. Some background, I’m married, planning on having kids in the next couple yrs, and I’ve also had some long term family challenges arise with my parents/siblings. I even had to go home on emergency leave to take care of some stuff with my folks. Long story short, I’m curious what some of the more experienced ppl on here might think are better assignments for 1). Family life/time at home/stability and 2). The potential for palace front/chase at the 6-7 yr mark (though I know this is rare). I’m an AD guy, I love flying, and honestly could really be excited about anything from an F-16 to a B-52 to a C-130 if I feel like it will give me at least a decent amount of time and stability for family and/or a higher potential for a guard/reserve option in a few yrs. Please let me know if you have any wisdom in these areas, or have seen guys deal with this kind of perspective who may have 2 cents to share. Thanks!!
Elders, Our class's drop sheet came out this past Friday and today we were snooping around AF Portal and came across AMS. We found that when we put in 2LT and C-17 with "All" as the base selected, the bases that showed up exactly correlated to what was on our drop sheet except there was a number next to how many slots were available. The same held true for other planes we typed from our drop sheet. Was this coincidental, or did we stumble upon a way to find out how many of each plane/base we dropped?
