  1. I’m excited to start and finish flight school. With that said, I just did 10 years in the Marine Corps. I’m looking forward to some down time however I can get it.
  2. I’m an inter service transfer guy from the Marine Corps. The waivers you need are no big deal. I got three waivers; for my age, my 10 years of active service, and my hearing is out of standards. Good luck! S/F Wu
  3. Yay. It doesn’t help that I’m crossing over from another branch and also an awkward duck.
  4. I can’t complain. I can’t believe my unit bought off on it.
  5. No, it’s not. Being a Captain has been awesome, much better than my time as snot nose Lt. I’m sure I’ll be sky-lined as a CPT going through initial pilot training.
  6. I wish that I was an option, my state is on the opposite coast and my wife and two kids are in school. It got worked out, I’m just getting sent through as a CPT.
  7. Good afternoon future Army homies, I'll cut to the point...I was originally slated to report to IERW this Oct. My State (I'm a Guard guy) is now pushing the date back to January 2021 because they believe it is unlikely my accession will get approved in time by Ft Shafter(I think). Does anyone know a point of contact at HQDA? Up until yesterday, I was told and under the impression that I would report in Oct. I have money set in savings to make it until January but it really puts a damper on things to go from 10 year Captain pay to zero income. Now some background on my situation: I am coming over as a non-rated Captain from the Marine Corps, nine years TIS and would of been in zone for Major this Fall. My EAS is 1 Oct 2020. I was selected by my State earlier this year as well as having my age ETP approved and package approved by the Guard Bureau/Aviation Proponent. I will still be brought in as a Captain on 2 Oct 2020 to avoid a break in service and to comply with the interservice transfer I agreed to. The issue is that with the current climate, it could take up to three months to complete my accession from O-3 to CWO-2 with HQDA. I understand where my State is coming from as they don't want to potentially lose the class seat and want to keep their pilot pipeline flowing while waiting on my paper work to get squared away. Any advice, input and criticism will be greatly appreciated. Cheers, Wu
  8. I’d like to but I’m up for orders: I’ve got a wife and two kids, I have to keep being the breadwinner. We’ll see, my wife and I will talk about it.
  9. I’m officially non-selected. They only took five commissioned officers on this go around. Pretty tough odds when competing against some studs
  10. I just wrote a letter per the format given and got it immediately. I submitted my package a day before the deadline and it got stamped approved a week later. The approval notification and return of the package as board ready took a little longer. The routing to and from takes a bit of time
  11. A txt message from the recruiter. Lol it was a nice txt though. We all can’t be bad ass pilots.
  12. Welp, put me in the pile that did not get selected. We’ll see about applying for the May board or executing orders to another duty station. Good luck to those selected and those waiting to get word on their package.
  13. I hit some folks up. I guess the board is complete but they haven’t pushed out the names of the selectees. They are holding it tight to their chest for the time being. I was also told that the MILPER message may not get released until after the thanksgiving 96.
