  1. Carl is more the knuckle dragging speed we are accustomed to... let's go with Carl.
  2. Who's this Johnny? And why does he have to belong to the attack community... this is f*cked up!
  3. I'm sorry I can't offer much advice in this topic as I'm relatively new to the whole thing and haven't been through it yet. If I however offer you an opportunity if you want to be in AZ, PM me.
  4. See kids, that's what an 80 gets you... lol
  5. I use the iPad mini case from Flying Circle Bags. It's pretty awesome but offers no water protection.
  6. For Guard, the delay between WOCS and WOBC is entirely state dependant. I only had three days at home to pack and leave again to make it back in time, but my buddy had a three month wait, and we were in the same WOCS.
  7. Guard is a PCS move back to Rucker after you graduate WOCS. WOCS is TDY for just you and you stay in the barracks "lockdown". When you PCS back, you'll be afforded the opportunity to live on base in housing or off base if you choose. Same as active duty. During my flight school, Guard was pushed ahead of active duty on class rostering to avoid excessive bubbles. My longest one was 3 months. It's unlikely that you'll return to your home state during flight school unless you fail a class or something. The challenge is whether or not to sell your current house, and buy another one when you're done and headed home, or to maintain your house at home as well as live on base. We were able to keep our house and live at Rucker with no problems.
  8. I emailed the developer of MyFlightbook and he has created a custom currency option that should make it so you can now add your airframes semi annual minimums and it'll work. I'm going to go build it tomorrow and check it out.
  9. Short answer: Contact your WOSM. They will have the correct answers to your questions or refer you to the OCS recruiter for your state. They will also help you get to the SIFT and flight physical and build your packet. If t required that you be in the Guard before submitting your packet, enlist as something 15 series. Preferably 15R, 15T or something "repairer". The schooling you'll get from AIT for that MOS will help you tons when you get to advanced airframe section of flight school as long as you're flying what you were trained to work on. Also being a 15 series will put you in the hangar around pilots and high ranking Warrants that you can interview with for a LOR. A CW5 LOR will hold a lot more weight to the board, for ARNG, than an officer's letter will.(assuming you go Warrant and not OCS)
