    This is not a jab, just curious why you feel you must do it is all.


    It is like paving a path after you've travelled it. It shows others a way so that they don't feel like they are lost in the wilderness. I created it when I believed that it would enlighten other applicants. It seems to now be similar to the ship blueprints in the engine room of the Titanic at the bottom of the Atlantic

    • A good friend of mine left preclearance to be an instructor at FLETC about three months ago. I spoke with him on the phone last week and asked how he is enjoying the teaching part and was suprised that he has not taught one single class! He has been going TDY to assist with BP Spanish testing. Even he does not know when the next class is starting. Anybody can guess, and in the end that is exactly what it is. I hope all of you get the call you have been waitig for and get it sooner than later!

          BBC posted an interesting article. Writing in generalities, they've decided that cargo and commercial traffic fell 10% and 3.5% respectively for carriers in 2009 from the year before.

          The article also states that North American carriers were hit particularly hard and had a reduction in passenger rates closer to 5.5%. On the plus side, as I have heard and suspected, Decembers traffic rates went up 1.6% on average. I would love some more specific port information. Does anybody have any ideas about how to get that info?

          What were this years attrition rates again?

          • address change

            Hello everybody. I will move to another town this weekend.
            Which is the best way to change my address?
            Does this has any impact on the background?
            My background is approved. I've heard that is you move they need to re-investigate but I don't know if that is true.
            Thanks in advance.

              Call MHC or the TSU unit. I've found that forum users have been more critical of need than the authority during this process, so go to the source.

                It used to be a useful tool when the hiring process was moving. You could easily find others that were at the same point in the process if you need information. It also used to help in gaging somewhat how your process was moving compared to those ahead of you. Now that we are all lounging around in TSU, probably not as necessary.

                        Probably the gun bunnies jacking up the time on the fuze again.

                        What is even better than that...when you hear the impact, but it is nowhere in the saftey box.

                        Anyone seen the road guards?

                            I was actually at Ft. Sill when the gun class almost planted one in the parking lot of the movie theater. Good Times!

                            • Any new rumours with regards to the GS-12 journeyman pay? Got some news from an old buddy that it's been pushed up to Quarter 2 possibly Q3. Anyone came across this "info"?

                                If you're being serious, does this mean besides the 15 weeks or so at the academy, an additional 6 months or so of buds training?
