Re: When is an AF fix not really a fix? UDM “Special Duty”
A few questions:
Is this an individual from the organization or is it some schmoe who is PCSing in to the unit?
Are there specific requirements for training/experience? You can train any idiot to read a checklist, speaking to members of a career field in their language and gaining their trust is a whole different deal.
Is this a "billet grab" by the 2G0XX career field? (8U = 2G??)
Deployment planning is big picture; actually deploying is very unit/specialty-centric. Is the 8U coming from the same background (MX, Supply, SF, CE, etc.) or is it somebody who was a UDM at a different type of organization?
I saw deployments get harder every time. Right before I cross-trained in 99 I was in MRSP (new title for WRSK, and that's Mobility Readiness Spares Package and War Readiness Spares Kit, Bob ). Sending a handful of C-130s to Saudi, Oman and Kuwait should not have been that hard since it had been going on forever at that point. It went south of CHARLIE FOXTROT before the sun came up. Based on that, it must be a major undertaking to get across the street these days. This sh!t shouldn't be that hard, we been doin it forever!!
