    Default Most blatant misuse of Airmen you have ever seen...

    Once had to go paint fire hydrants brown because a V.I.P was coming on base...

    Wripping up the carpet and taking the doors off the hinges on the student dorms on Hurby. That MTL quickly retired with little fanfare.

    Well, this actually kinda fell into the airman's job description but I knew a food service SrA once who was assigned to the SECAF's private mess facility. He had to count out eight (8) raisins for the AF Chief Scientist's oatmeal.

    Exactly what transpires in one's life that they think it is ok to ask another human being to count out raisins for their frapping cereal? By the way this was Spring of 1994 so if you can figure out who was AF Chief Scientist then you know who the Delta Bravo was.

    No I meant when Gen Creech ran TAC. Everything was painted Brown and Sandstone. In fact, we called it Creech Brown. At Seymour Johnson they paint the curbs (they were only on corners of some roads) brown and the safety chief went batshit. He won that battle put the postmaster lost when he insisted they couldn't paint his mailboxes. Base CC said "ok, remove the boxes from my base". Luckily the postmaster cared more about the troops on base then the base commander cared about painting the mailboxes.

    EDIT: I just remembered....they also painted the back of signs (stop, yield etc.) Creech Brown.

    Stupid. Were they already brown or a different color? Fire hydrants are actually supposed to be different colors, at least the tops anyway. Red, Orange, Green and Blue. These colors tell the fire guys how strong the flow is out of them.

    The biggest misuse of Airmen I see is making them do their jobs when they should be out PTing or running bake sales.

    They provide housing for the 50 or so Airmen that work at Abdullah Al Mubarak?
