Oh, Diana, I am so sorry you have gotten this run-around. You deserve better and more effective in-take than this. And my kid’s life dream is to go into the Air Force. Getting less keen all the time on his career choice.

Hang in there. Your persistence will pay off. You are contributing so much to the USAF that I hope they, whomever they is, come to their senses, recognise your value, and give you what you need to deal with this black dog, as Churchill called his depression. -LG

Hopefully, they WILL change that part of the writing. Do you think they “REALY had forgotten” it was in there, all this time?

My hat is off to you for sticking up for yourself - and all the others who will be affected by the change.

I try to remind myself to “never attribute to malice what can be adequately explained by stupidity,” but that particular clause seems a bit too convenient to be a dumb mistake. However, I rarely get to experience milspec dumb.

As for Major Archer, another aphorism comes to mind: “To a kid with a hammer, everything looks like a drunk.”

Good for you for speaking up about that form. If nobody complains, nothing gets fixed.
