  Anyone here Aircrew?
Posted by: Farts - 09-11-2016, 10:34 AM - Forum: Question and Support Board - Replies (47)

So here's the thing....

I'm a comm guy (2841) and I hate every waking second of it. Comm is a miserable thankless job riddled with computer work and admin shit. Honestly, I was really just gonna get out and wipe my hands of it all. Now, however, people in my field are getting recalled fairly commonly if they still have reserve time, which fills me with unspeakable dread. Through some short handed and probably flawed reasoning, I've decided my best course of action is a lat move, hopefully into aircrew.

My understanding of it is pretty basic. I worked with a handful of them in Spain and thought it seemed like a pretty cool job. For starters, aircraft and flight and whatnot make my dick rock hard. I've never had a bad time on the flightline. Just seems like the place to be. These guys apparently deploy all the time too, which is definitely a plus. I work on an air station now, and it seems like the squadrons are constantly going somewhere. It just generally sounds like a more enjoyable, meaningful job then sitting at my desk all day going through service requests and shit. Doing absolutely nothing would be immeasurably better than continuing to work with GCSS-MC. On a more skin deep petty note, they wear flight suits and get nifty badges and shit. That's pretty cool.

All that said, I imagine its not all sunshine and farts. I know air wingers work all sorts of weird/shitty hours. I know about the helo dunker thing, and can only assume there's even more training along that line. Plus going back to the school house as a corporal probably sucks.

I dunno. Figured I'd ask before I threw another 4 years of my life to the winds. Any advice anyone with any knowledge on the subject is welcome. If you think I'm retarded and can provide evidence, I'm glad to hear that too.

tl;dr- Comm guy hates comm and wants to try aircrew. Advice Appreciated. Thanks in advance

  Iphone or Android?

I'm trying to gather data for a business stats assignment and I'd appreciate input from anybody.

Do you own an android or iPhone? If it's neither I'm not interested in your response, you filthy poor plebeian.

  Anybody in the 06xx field?
Posted by: Space Cowboy - 08-02-2016, 06:06 PM - Forum: Question and Support Board - Replies (33)

I am a bit curious as to what exactly the jobs in the 06xx field entail, specifically? Is this a field that a tech-head would enjoy? Here is a bit of background about myself:

- Currently a USMC poolee, looking for a career field that will translate well into the civilian world
- Self studied computer science for the past year
- Very interested in modern software development
- Not much of a hardware guy, although I've never truly dabbled with it to be honest

Can anybody help direct me towards something that may be up my alley? Thanks in advance guys!

P.S.
Sorry I placed this in the wrong spot. I already used the search feature to look for a thread that was specifically for poolee questions regarding MOS's and such, to no avail.

  GI Bill Question
Posted by: ABACABB - 07-31-2016, 04:19 PM - Forum: Question and Support Board - Replies (2)

So, I'll be finishing my masters by the fall but will have almost 3 months left on the Chapter 33. My plan is to use the remainder for a language course at the local community college. Am I able to do that or would I have to be involved in yet another degree-granting program to even use the GI Bill for a non-technical class?

I'm planning to attend this class in person to get even a small stipend out of it. My wife wants me to do it online which is more practical because I work full time and have a 2 hour commute each day, but a.) I don't think I'll get a stipend from online because I'll be going less than half time and b.) I need to interact with people to learn another language. I get that online is fine for research-based courses, but probably won't do for language.

If you're like me, you love cooking and are always looking for new ideas, so let us make a thread dedicated to our inner culinary aspirations.  




I'll start.  Tonight, I shall attempt to make my first ever cauliflower pizza.  A girl a work mentioned it earlier, so I did some investigating and am now prepping.  In addition, she introduced me to a whole world of cauliflower, which I will experiment with all weekend.  Anyway, feel free to share and suggest.




Stay tune for pics

  Question
Posted by: Kabul Raid - 07-20-2016, 09:30 AM - Forum: Question and Support Board - Replies (6)

I've been out for a couple years now. You fuk faces that are out just like myself, do you still hold onto paper work that you received in the Corps? Such as orders, flight itinerary and etc.

I'm doing some cleaning and trashing chit left and right. I doubt I'll never need em. Better safe than be sorry later.

Picture for your time:

  Active reserve re-enlistment
Posted by: fredbenz - 07-11-2016, 03:09 PM - Forum: Question and Support Board - Replies (4)

I've been Eas'd for almost three years and I have a little less than a year left on my IRR contract. Local reserves recruiter calls me and tells me they're looking for a 5711 (a secondary MOS I got by taking a two week class, and then S-1 decided to make my primary MOS). So I meet the guy and the deal sounds pretty good, and I figure why not? All I do is work out and go to school anyway.

The SSgt tells me that there is no contract. I can quit the reserves whenever I feel like it, and I'll just have one year of IRR service after that. However, he can't produce an MCO, NAVMC, or any piece of paper saying this, making me fairly skeptical of this claim. 
Has anyone ever joined the reserves after an active duty enlistment? Advice? I'm just outside Minneapolis, MN. Thanks.
