Did you retrain, or get a guaranteed contract?

Thats what you have to figure out. Is it worth it to put the effort forward into something intense or just go an easy route.

Im telling you this... if you do decide to do EOD or anything that takes a lot to succeed there is no such thing as try or fail. You have to have that type A personality that there is nothing but success that comes from your fingertips... there is nothing less acceptable. It sucks because I hate failing or not doing well... ive learned that here most at K9 school. I can take constructive criticism but god damn the instructors here make you feel so stupid and what makes me really pissed off is theyre good at it.

Its a fake career field. Intelligence recon... the AF doesnt do **** like that. Thats more along the lines of what other special units do. They will send a SOF unit to collect that intel or an infantry unit will collect basic intel and piece together a strike package.

Just something to add to the movie...

It really all depends. Let me explain.

At the time, AF units in Iraq and Afghanistan who were attached to the Army performing OTW Ops didnt have a fire retardant uniform. Part of the requirements for operating OTW in the AO is your uniform has to be fire resistant. 100% cotton or a treated uniform is required.

DCUs were comonly worn but have been phased out and only special units still use them. ABUs suck because the normal ABU is not fire treated. ACUs are more readily available and that is why they are used.

AF has since developed the ABS-G (Airman Battle System-Ground) which is a fire treated uniform for OTW operations for the AF. BUT... now that AFCENT has come down with all units in Afghanistan WILL wear the Multicam uniform, all that development was a total waste. They sucked too so it doesnt matter. The multicam is a better pattern and built better and is more functional as a uniform compared to the ABU and the ABS-G handsdown

Anything is better than ABUs in the desert. I felt bad for all the dudes wearing them overseas.

They just came out with a new joint uniform to be worn by soldiers and airmen that are deployed in afganistan. Mostly to those individuals who will be going outside the wire

I'll be getting my Multicams here in a few days. I'll post pics when I get em.

But The initial release will be for forces outside the wire, but eventually they will be given to all Soldiers/Airmen/ Sailors who are in Afghanistan, even if they dont leave the wire.

It's weird, a lot of people think they look ugly.. I think those people are crazy.

got a call this morning to tell me to stay put because the weather in the Sierras sucks at the moment. What I was told was to, "stay put, keep out of trouble and no hookers." and the no hookers line was from the squadron commander. I think I'm gonna like my unit.
