Thank you sir! I have always worked better with the Marines.Stupify said:
They have some pretty high speed gigs in the AF...TAC-P and CCT :thumb
If you don't have them already, get some Danners Sarge. Nice pic, good looking dog.
I don't think it was because I had not been to Ranger school. Over half the 2nd ranger batalion had not been. Once they go to Ranger they automaticly put on E-5. Most if not all the E1-E4's had not attended and were not tabbed. They do not talk to thier NCOs much at all. That batalion is known for its haising of its Privates. I think it was just the same with me. Most of the NCOs talked work issues with me from the start.STEFAN73 said:
I'm guessing that you aren't Ranger qualified which could have been the problem.
It most likely wasn't because you aren't Army but because you aren't tabbed, so if you heard the acronim "NTB" that is most likely the problem!! Bat. boys are known to be like that to anybody new!
I hear you and do not blame you for getting pissed about that at all. AF perrsonel that whine about being deployed deserve to be punch in the face! If they are doing 90 days or less there MOS consist of handing out basket balls at the gym or somthing like that. All my deployments have been 6-9 months. But thats just the way the AF does it. The Army is getting abused year in few months out and back for a year. Thats tough on anyone!archren said:
Whoo... can't say I envy you being in the field at this time of year! I'm glad I'm in Virginia for the worst of the German winter! :laughing
Don't take it personal with the Army folk not treating you seriously... I'll be the first to admit I got a little raw seeing AF people cycle through my base in Iraq for 3-6 months at a time, while I was stuck there for a whole year. NOT saying that there aren't Airmen who DO get deployed for a year or more, but damned if those pussies who whined about a 90 day deployment didn't chap my arse... :laughing
I'm over it now. Mostly.
I think the one experience I had that really stuck out in my mind was an AF Major my husband and I overheard here at Langley when we were working at the Personal Property office back in August. The Major ran into a civilian friend of his, and was lamenting the fact that he had to "sleep in a tent" for 30 days in Korea. I mean, he was actually REALLY upset about the whole ordeal, and just went on and on about it. :shakeDuane said:
