Promotion and PRF Information

Recommended Posts

Anyone in charge here?  This article does not mention promotion, but these concepts should be considered as we're about to overhaul the system. Take note.

"To find a solution without letting unvalidated assumptions dictate design, we eliminate solution-oriented language (e.g., "I need a car") and substitute problem-oriented language (e.g., "I need to be at work every day" or, even more simplified, "I need to accomplish work"). This is how we discover the value-basis for what we’re designing."

The bill pages just got updated with some new actions. I have no idea what they mean, but the committee is doing something with them today.

I saw it too.  Looks like its scheduled for vote on Monday.....hopefully we see increments posted the same day or the next.  I have a really low line number....I was supposed to promote 1 Sept but oh well.  Does anyone know if we get to put on right away after it is confirmed or do we wait until Oct 1.

2006-2008 YG PRFs due to the wing in a few weeks, seems a bit early.  Are 0-5 boards rolling left for some reason? 

PRFs I don’t think 06 year group owes anything..... the new PRFs are 2 lines of SR verbiage.   If I have to write anything, it’s going to be PROMOTE TO GENERAL NOW

Farewell, Line of the Air Force: Massive officer category broken out into six groups

The first promotion board to use the new categories will be the lieutenant colonel board scheduled to meet next March, Air Force personnel chief Lt. Gen. Brian Kelly said at the briefing.

The complete list of career fields in each category is as follows:

Air Operations and Special Warfare, or LAF-A: pilot (11X), combat systems (12X), remotely piloted aircraft pilot (18X), air battle manager (13B), special tactics (13C), combat rescue (13D), tactical air control party (13L);

Space Operations, or LAF-S: space operations (13S), astronaut (13A);

Nuclear and Missile Operations, or LAF-N: nuclear and missile operations (13N);

Information Warfare, or LAF-I: cyber operations (17X), intelligence (14N), operations research analyst (61A), weather (15W), special investigations (71S), information operations (14F), public affairs (35X);

Combat Support, or LAF-C: airfield operations (13M), aircraft maintenance (21A), munitions and missile maintenance (21M), logistics readiness (21R), security forces (31P), civil engineering (32E), force support (38F), contracting (64P), financial management (65X);

“The promotion boards for officers in each developmental category will not be stacked entirely with officers from that same category, Kelly said, though some will be from that category. Instead, there will be a mix of officers, depending on the size of the board, to make sure the board gets an “institutional perspective.””

So how is that any different than what we have now?

I believe the quote is poorly communicated.  I'm pretty sure Gen Kelly is referring to the makeup of the board.  All officers up for promotion will be from the same competitive category, but there will be a few board members from outside the cores represented to spice things up.

Still seems like it's defeating the purpose of splitting the categories.

So we still have some shoe clerk who knows jack shit about flying and puts no score emphasis on WIC, #1 IP, flying combat related awards/rankings, etc. They’ll still be putting emphasis on bullshit that doesn’t have to do with flying jets and killing bad guys. Not a whole lot different from what it has been. At least you won’t compete against the PA officer who has a shitload of time to projo and volunteer for a ton of stuff while doing their second masters.
