They just sat us down in a room, handed us our badges, and certs and said have a nice day.
i heard alot of pffffttt and pssshhh and jibber jabber in this.

tl;dr

i wanted to include a story of me in blues but turned out to be really boring so just threw alot of words that had vowels in them and made a paragraph.

On a different note...

I have a friend (and I promise it isn't me) who is a SSgt and works at a majcom. He has been there 3 years and is about to PCS. He was told that they can't write him a comm because he was deployed for a year and you can't get a comm if you were gone for 1/3 of his tour... So they want to give him an Achievement medal.

Now this sounds completely messed up. As far as I know, as long as you dont completely **** up you get a medal suiting your pay grade after a tour or every 3 years. He has been a quite stellar dude too. Lots of awards, now paperwork, and is basically the poster child for our career fields merger...

That sounds wrong, right? What are the rules for contesting a medal? And for the record he was only a SrA for about a year of the 3 year tour. So I can't imagine that would be a factor..

bull****. the dude deserves a Dec. It might be different at a majcom but a rule of thumb from what I've seen is if you don't **** up and you do a decent job you should get a dec when you PCS. Not giving him one is going to hurt him when it comes to cutting scores for promotions. Granted it's only a point and you can make that up by studying harder but sometimes that one point is the difference between making it and not making it.

Edit: I guess I didn't make it clear in my initial post that he is getting a dec..

Well the issue is with the type of dec he is getting. An unspoken rule is that E1-4 get Achievements, E5/6 get Commendations E7+ get MSM.. and they are trying to give him an achievement, even though he is an NCO.. While it is still a dec. it is kind of a slap in the face. And for him to miss out on a comm would cost him 2 points.. again, nothing too hard to overcome but sometimes that is what makes the difference.

if he's writing it himself or if the supervisor gives a **** about helping their people out they'd write it as a Comm instead of an achievement and then if asked why state that he's an NCO, that he earned it, and that there is no reason for him not to get it, deployment be damned.

Medals are like candy - erryone gets one just depending on what one you get

i have 1 medal in 13 years - rule was if you was not a firewall 5 no medal

but im from the days of when the AF was cooler and a lot harder to get medals.

only medal i need is the grill in my mouf - BOOYAH

I didn't get a medal from my last base because I hadn't been there 2 years. I was only there 18 months before I PCS'd so they denied me one.

I dunno. That seems like bs to me. You have no control over your your length. If you dud your job and we're successful I don't see why you shouldn't get a medal.
