    The T-38 was going to be my guess as you are wearing an AF patch and have butter bars on your shoulders. B) As a general rule, you would have traded in those bars for silver ones about the time you got to your assigned aircraft type.

    Sheppard AFB?

    You’re good !

    Yep , AF pilot training “ hero picture” - as they called it .....
    went to Vance AFB , Oklahoma .... the land of crosswinds ...
    Made you a good pilot , though .....

    2nd lieutenant ....we didn’t know **** back then - even though we thought we knew it all as soon as we got our wings .... too funny to think about it now ....
    My , my , my .... how our eyes were opened later on ......

    Marine Corps pilots usually got their promotion to 1st Lieutenant before they got out to the fleet as well. It was rare to see a butter-bar with his name on the canopy.

    All branches of the service have the same “time in grade” rules for promotion ....
    2 yrs to 1st Lt , then another 2 yrs to captain , 11 to Major , etc .....

    Marine pilots HAVE to complete basic infantry school AND Platoon leadership school ( or whatever they call it now ) PRIOR to going to pilot training .... grunt first , pilot second is their mantra ....
    Therefore , they have spent more “time in grade” than the other services upon earning their wings ......

    Most military pilots think you’re CRAAAAAZY to be a Marine 😃
    Most guys just wanna fly - not be a grunt ..... BUT - we have a TREMENDOUS amount of respect for them because it is a much , much more difficult path to go down .... something I would have NEVER, EVER made it through.....
    The Marines are hard core , the AF is a flying club by comparison- until the bullets start flying - then we all get our **** together and do what needs to be done .

    I will say this - seriously - in 28 years of airline flying , I have never flown with a mediocre Marine or Navy pilot ... they have all been good.

    there’s a reason it’s called the “Chair Force”

    The marines deploy to tents , the Navy to boats , the army to foxholes , the AF to hotels ..... perfect airline training ... 😃

    Oh , man ..... you sound like all my friends 😃......


    The airlines operate on a seniority system ...
    Could have had it 15 years ago .....
    wife has a high paying job ...
    Have a 15 yr old son


    as a copilot I’m much more senior than as a captain 12/400 vs 140/400 on my plane in Dallas ...

    And there’s 11 ahead of me in my seat , on my plane , in Dallas who think like I do ....

    I only work 2 days a week , no fri sat or sundays .... home every night , holidays off,
    Work when I want , don’t when I don’t .. full paycheck ..
    100 % lifestyle flexibility.....
    A FANTASTIC job ....

    Basically, I’m into quality of life ....

    Why mess that up ? 😃

    Never heard of anyone’s deathbed words being “ I wish I’d worked more ...”

    Can’t wait to retire 😃

    Ps - hope that didn’t sound bad ......but it’s the truth 👍

    El Toro was my last duty station. I went there after leaving Iwakuni for a few months before getting my dd214.

    6027... I was supposed to be 6014 but I ran into a gunny with a hardon for contract corporals. He cost me two stripes in one shot, ten grand, and a slot at Embry-Riddell..... it’s a long story.

    "I" level engine? What did they use the F404 in? The Phrog used GE-T58s.

    F/a 18’s... back in the 80’s, fixed wing went through NAS Millington. I don’t remember if rotorheads went through there.
