    Re: Finally a PCS.

    Got picked up for Mildenhall. Should be the happiest day of my life but that's not how the Air Force works. 7 years I've been trying to claw my way out of this North Dakota hell hole. Denied BOP's, denied overseas assignments (got picked up for Kunsan 2 years ago and that got cancelled, not by me), I've had worldwide volunteer for years, denied cross training, was about to volunteer for a 365 then got assignment coded so I couldn't go anywhere. A few months ago I get in touch with my functional and I'm basically told, "sorry bud, you're stuck there due to manning". I've been hearing this "manning" excuse for years. So I called AFPC's bluff on this "manning" crap, and turned in an MTI package last week. I figured with all the non-vol'd stuff going on lately this was pretty much guaranteed. Now all of a sudden manning is good enough for me to get an assignment to Mildenhall? GTFO.

    Anyways, I've mind f*cked myself into really looking forward and getting excited to be an MTI although I haven't heard anything back yet. Now I don't know what to do.

    I started a TI package myself like just started and it didnt go my way. I'd just go to Mildenhall doesnt sound as much fun with the scandal going on.

    Non volunteered to Guam. Not happy as I liked it here, but there are certainly much worse places to be. This will be my second time there.

    England is a great assignment. I hear you on that you wanted to be an MTI...but you can go to London for the weekend. Or Scotland. England was a lot of fun for me.

    Re: Finally a PCS.

    Has there been any talk about how PCS moves could be delayed or cancelled with the cuts happening? Furloughs may take a while to enact, but a PCS is relatively easy to cancel.
