Upcoming Boards


Recommended Posts

I’m willing to bet every CONUS ANG unit that has a mobility mission is working this weekend to deliver Army National Guard and Air National Guard forces to DC with at least one aircraft. My state sent 25 Army, 25 Air so far and has three jets against it.

Those 50 are above and beyond the ones we have mobilized to vaccinate, augment security within the state and man call centers for unemployment support and vaccine information.

I’ve honestly never seen anything quite like this in 18 years of being in the Guard.


I’ve been in the ANG for over 28 yrs and I agree with you. Lots of movement from my base to DC yesterday.

Thanks but no thanks email just went out from DC. Best of luck to those who made the final board 🤟🏼

That's interesting/hilarious since I applied to them a year ago, got the "Received" response, and never heard again either way. 🤷‍♂️

Yeah definitely an interesting timeline for that one. They were super delayed due to covid, ops tempo, etc. and pretty sure they only reached out to those selected for zoom interviews, and that was 9 months post deadline

Anybody hear yes or no from CPW? I got a random email from an AFRES recruiter that said "congrats again on your selection" but did not refer to what I had been selected for. Thinking either mistaken identity or I missed an email from the CPW folks. 

This is your new identity now. Take it and run.

I've heard back and from what I was told a list of us have been selected. I'm assuming you applied to CPW?

Any body else see this in the new BogiDope article and have some more insight?

Was wondering if this applied only to Reserve units or ANG units as well. Additionally I thought unsponsored candidates only ever go to heavy units so could we assume this clause doesn't apply to fighter units?

Unsponsored is an AFRC thing, so it only applies to the Reserves. Also from what I’ve heard it’s hypothetically possible for an unsponsored candidate to go to a fighter unit, it’s just rare.

I know of one guy who got fighters through unsponsored, but his uncle was Chief of the Air Force 😂. True story. Otherwise, nearly impossible.

1 of 2 hired at ft. Worth 457th this year was unsponsored no high up connections just a normal dude. It happens. Little bit of luck and timing is key

If you don’t mind, when did Ft Worth hire those last guys? Info on 457th boards was a bit unclear last year.

Also was unsponsored with no high up connections; I will be heading to fighters. It's not common, but with good timing, luck, and a lot of hard work it is possible.
