There is a new dude from the AFA... It's epic...
Can you PM it ? Like copy paste or a link? I need some entertainment.
Are you talking about the introduction letter the guy wrote for his training squadron? It was floating around my wardroom a week or so ago, but I think I got rid of it.
That's the one.
Just read it. Jesus Christ...this is even worse than my pics that made it to AW and got me attrited for 6 weeks
Where can one find these emails? Or can I be blessed with someone PM'ing me a link or the letters?
Please post. Deployment is boring. My only entertainment is fucking with O-4s, and if it keeps up at this pace, I'm bound to get destructive.
hmm. I'll see if I can't copy and paste. along with some of the better comments... It will be in the PNA forum...
I edited the post to remove his name and identifying information. Just like the Lead Ensign, there is no need to make his name any more public than it already is.
If anybody has any heartache about why we do not need to post his name, feel free to PM me.
I assume one needs to be winged to see the private forum?
If you're a SNA in the VTs, you can request access.
Re-designation depends on the time of year. If it's near October, you have a better chance of getting picked up for something else. Also, and this is just something that I noticed but may not be factual, it appears that the further along the pipeline you DOR, NPQ, whatever, then the higher chance you'll get a redesignation. When I was going through API, it was a 50/50 shot. All the people who went to redesignation that I saw at Primary got accepted. Not something I'd count on, though. Don't stress it and kick ass.
I think things have shifted recently, one of our now LTJG's put in for redesignation a few months ago due to being dropped out of flight school and only one of his group was approved for redesignation, several years ago I would run into guys who were dropped but redesignated without any issues.
I remember those days. Good times in the 27 ready room... OUSooner romping around in his khakis.
Don't you remember how your meeting went with the Commodore?
OUSOONER when he found out he wasn't attrited.
and now I've got wings on my chest (don't call it a come back).... comina yeahhhhhhhhhhaaaaaaa
I know it has already been said, but keep the focus positive while going through this whole process. Dreams become goals and the focus needs to be on obtaining those goals. The more focused you are on that, the more likely you will be to succeed. Good luck.
OU, do tell...what almost got you attrited?
I'm sure there are dudes on here who would do a better job telling it. Wouldn't want the truth to get in the way of a good story.
He took some pictures on his T-34 solo and posted them on facebook. Then a nameless AW who was friends with him on facebook posted the pics on AW. I guess the TW-4 Commodore or someone near him saw them online, and had some special words with young Ensign OUSooner.
Ah yes... never to soon to learn about BlueFalconry and the ever present dangers of camera phones.
Yeah I always assumed that camera phones would result in a slap on the wrist. Whoever the vigilante was that uploaded those photos jumped to some conclusions without asking to clarify first...I hope he apologized for nearly destroying what you've worked for.
Ok, bout that time. Can I be added to the PNA. I need to read this
