    I thought the Air Force motto was " Warheads On Foreheads " ?

    Lt. Comd. Dodge: No, merely a higher ranking one.

    You old timers would be so jacked up now for knowing your jobs. In fact...I will walk around my squadron every once in awhile and try to find somebody that knows the job well. Once I find someone I will then jack them up big time for not knowing the trivial stuff I expect them to know. My first term reenlistment rate is pretty low...that's a big source of pride for me.

    I really can't get my head around his whole fill your void with space and vice versa. Like really don't get it at all. Now, I've been following this thread for a bit. I really don't get how this whole 5 MT crap adds value to the mission. Does it enhance mission effectiveness at all? In fact it probably detracts from it. This guy needs to focus on real problems. I know that's been said before. Because of his long winded, crap filled emails, I'd delete anything with his name in my inbox. Does he really believe he's positively affecting anything? This guy's a bigger buzz kill than Buzz Killington!

    I can't help but keep wondering how I would deal with all this if I was there.

    My guess would be that if they even thought you were thinking about telling them how absolutely retard this crap is, you would be instantly demoted to SMSgt send home and force retired. All for not having the required "buy in".

    What is even more depressing is that this clown will leave ASAB and head off somewhere else. I am SURE someone on this forum, whether a long time lurker or poster, will be blessed to have him at their wing.

    It's the same in all wars, the very young and adventurous give up their lives for the old and cautious, and so the bluecollar for the privileged, the uneducated for the student, the poor for the well off, the patriot for the politician, and the few for the many.

    So... here is the latest and greatest. This is actually pretty straight forward, and is really stuff that we should definitely know. The only iffy thing for me is the AF motto bit...

    I did OPSEC-safe this--all references to location and specific wing have been removed. Although we all know where it is...

    "ASAB Enlisted Members,



    BLUF: Professional Airmen need to know their Key Leaders & their Command
    Concepts as well as Leadership's Visions and Strategic Intents. This allows
    for better situational awareness and helps us realize what's important
    across our various echelons of Command.



    Your immediate (5-meter) Professional Development targets for October are
    to:

    - KNOW the AF Motto

    - KNOW the Chief Of Staff of the AF's (CSAF's) Priorities

    - UNDERSTAND the wing's Mission Statement

    - UNDERSTAND Wing CC's Vision for the wing.



    TASK: You'll find those statements on the attached document. I'd suggest
    either printing it out or saving it to your desktop for quick reference.
    Read through them so that you can answer any questions about Commander's
    Priorities and Vision. Also, be ready to shout out the AF Motto at public
    events.or whenever prompted by the CC.



    5MT RECAP - Other Professional Development 5-Meter Targets that are
    applicable to ALL Enlisted Airmen at ASAB are contained HERE: Chief's
    Corner

    They will be referenced on that site as 5 Meter Targets . These are
    perpetual requirements at the wing.

    1. Know (BY MEMORY) the Airman's Creed and First verse of the AF Song-
    Be able to Recite or Sing in unison during Wing Events or when asked.
    (August)

    2. Know our Wing History & location information. (Sept.to be
    posted soon)

    3. Know our Senior Leaders as well as their Priorities and Visions
    (NEW.to be posted soon).



    BOTTOM LINE: Professional Airmen need to know their Key Leaders, their
    Command Concepts, Leadership Visions and Strategic Intents. This allows for
    better situational awareness and helps us realize what's important to our
    various echelons of Command."
    The much venerated and maligned "Sgt Schultz" comes to mind.:heh

    My first job after tech school while in Transient Alert was assisting an old TSgt change an engine on a B-25 that was passing through Eglin AFB. I had to work on the ground while he worked above me on top of the engine. My biggest challange was to dodge the chawin' tobaccy he let fly every now and then. After we finished the pilot told me to strap my ass in the observer's seat to check out my work. With no guidelines about anything, I strapped in and went for the test flight checking out the engine out over the Gulf. That was my baptism to the real Air Force
    I wanna get baptized into the real Air Force....hwell


    Sadly I feel what today's Air Force is.....well is the real Air Force.
