WIC grads in exec positions is definitely NOT the standard in the CAF. Seems like a phenomenon only in the MAF.

 

Could it possibly be true that the old FWIC concept was unnecessarily watered-down by the “everyone gets a trophy” mentality when operators of every MDS got a seat at the table?

 

I mean, if your wing/MDS can spare target arms for non-W prefix work, doesn’t that make them superfluous?

 

(Yeah yeah, burn the witch...I know...)

 

No, at least in the 130 world patches do some great work and training.  The problem is a lot of our 05-06 leadership are careerist politicians who don’t understand how to utilize the patches.  I have three examples now of patches sitting in the exec offices while the tactics shop is burning to the ground.

Say it to yourself outloud: tactical expert who went to elite tactical school working as a secretary focused on OPR bullets, formatting, and PowerPoints  

If it sounds stupid to say it’s probably fucking stupid. Don’t over complicate it. 

Someone needs to break the mold.

So did Duck get passed over or what? It's been f'ing years of this shit and now mums the word? My faith in the US Air Force hinges on this answer. ~Bendy


Check back a couple of pages. He was successful in his escape plans.

Yeah, I was one of like 14 APZ guys passed over. It’s been busy around here doing TAPs and interviews for jobs, etc... Thanks for all the support throughout the years bros!

By current promotion rates the last of the '03 O-5 selects should pin on in October.  Hopefully they'll tell the '04 results no later than that so the first few selectees can make some very hurried plans in time for 1 Nov.  My money is on early-mid September.

You think they care about convenience of proletariat, or anything even approaching common sense?  Much have you to learn, young padawan.

100% consideration for major was supposed to be determined by last Friday. Now it's pushed to the end of this week for a decision.

The old heads hate the fact individuals were promoted for doing absolutely nothing. The hate is real. This experiment will come back and bite us all.

We must seize the means of production and promotion!

You're very opinionated.

Haha fair enough.  I'm still suffering under the delusion I stand a chance after already being passed over once.  The better question for me is do I accept continuation of nah?

I'm right there with you.  I'm leaning toward accepting it as it allows me to time my exit.  But that works for my unique situation of being within 19 months of my ADSC right now.  Being forced to separate in the spring of 2019 only compresses any of my separation/retirement plans. 

If denying continuation allows you to bail on a significant ADSC, that's a pretty sweet ace to have in your hand.  Play it wisely.  The private sector, while lucrative, is unforgiving to the unprepared.

Since it has been brought up, has anyone heard any rumors about the current LTC board regarding promotion rates? I have heard that it will be a 91% promotion rate, but don't know if that includes APZ like the majors board did, or it will be 91% for IPZ and the standard 3% for APZ. Either way, I have a plan, but would like be able to figure out what I am doing for the next 4 to 5  years without waiting on AFPC or HAF A1s timeline.

I like my chances at 91%.

So O-5 is the new O-4
