    Re: "Unwritten" Rules

    Any mark downs on an EPR during a tour equals no or a lower decoration at PCS. I had a TSgt that had one mark down in three years and the Gp chief wanted to down grade his AFCM to an AFAM. Had to include a push note from the supervisor and commander to get the job done.

    Re: "Unwritten" Rules

    Any dec based on rank. Granted, I can't see a SrA/SSgt getting a MSM, but have known and nominated more than one really good TSGT for MSM. Actually won on two cases - but was out of probably 6.

    That is one that I didnt think of..... Push Notes.

    Why? The citiation and write up should be strong enougth to justify the medal package. If not then no decoration.

    Re: "Unwritten" Rules

    I havent heard of any of these I will say I got f'ed out of a commendation medal because " I have not had staff on Long enough" that coming from the worst e-9 trying to make e-10 i ever seen. after 3 "appeals" from my leadership he said one last time he isnt a staff long enough its either achievement or nothing

    yet the shitbag staff who was skating the whole year away because hw as getting out and didnt do dick got his .

    that pretty much ruiend my view of the usaf for a long time and hence my reason why im leaving this current career field

I retrained into Intel instead.
    That's hilarious to me, since when I was at Randolph there was a brand new 1st Sgt with a part STRAIGHT DOWN THE MIDDLE. While I thought it looked poindexter, it certainly was not out of regs, so I can't really understand that mentality of the CCMs that you're talking about.

    For those of a certain generation, parting your hair down the middle indicated that you indulged in recreational chemicals. I shit you not.

    I don't know what career field you're in now, but don't be shocked when you find out your new career has the same BS rules.
