    You may not like the decision (not a surprise). Just a FYI for AF service members.

    I don't care about the decision. I care more about the person eating 20 yogurt packs.... and if he's still alive. That's some HEAVY yogurt... and after eating 20, it still may not pop on a drug test?

    It's no surprise you "like" the decision (although, if the Air Force decided to wear pretty pink panda uniforms, something tells me you'd support that too), but this is common sense.

    It reminds me of the rumors of eating poppy seed bagels (you're going to pop positive for cocaine!!!)

    Oh well, blueberries are yummy, sorry a small segment of the AF population misses out.

    Not a matter of like or dislike. Just a post to inform AF service members. I made no comment about the decision one way or another. I didn't call the decision dumb or smart.

    If the Coast Guard were to wear pretty pink panda uniforms I would support that decision but common sense tells me neither branch would do that!

    Well I certainly would support the uniform choice. You can support a service without liking or supporting everything it does. Contrary to popular belief, services aren't always right.

    Maybe.... but then again, some people are stuck in the weeds of golf clubs, fly overs and others are concerned about the missions of each service.

    You think I don't like the Air Force, but I do. I have AF friends. I was once a member of the Air Force Association. In high school I had a B-17 alarm clock (OK... that's Army, i know) and I had plane models (hard industrial plastic, not the kind you put together) of an F-117, F-15A and F-15E, U-2 and SR-71. My AFA exchange friends off-set the bad taste I had of AFA cadets from my first All-Academy Ball in Tennessee. Through my joint DOD programs, I always enjoyed the Air Force days. I've probably seen more of the Air Force than you, and I've really enjoyed it.

    The Air Force also has some issues, like any service. The Air Force spends money that other services, and agencies could only dream of. The Air Force focuses on things that I believe are a waste of time. Don't worry, the Coast Guard does it too. And the Coast Guard also wastes some of its money... it just has FAR LESS to waste. I think the Air Force has an identity crisis... something I wasn't aware of until I went off to a joint school and had an Air Force colonel brief us.

    So don't worry. If at some point a Coast Guard parents comes here and starts to raise heck about the lack of an MH-60/MH-65 flyover during graduation, or why cadets can't have surfboards in their rooms, or why CGA should have a laundry service like AFA, I will talk to them about it too. Doesn't mean I don't like the Coast Guard.... but there are certainly areas the Coast Guard improve on. The same is true for the Army, Navy, Marine Corps and your beloved Air Force.

    You forgot about the prep school! It not just about flyovers, golf courses, graduate school, it's about anything AF. I don't have time to research but you are not a fan of AF IMHO. But I will say that you are a model supporter of your USCGA and for that I admire you!

    Prep school feeds golf courses! Reread the thread, I wasn't critical of grad school.

    I've always found the Air Force to be very mission-focused, responsive, adaptive, humble, and reasonab-

    :yllol: I couldn't keep a straight face any longer.

    1) Most of the AF folks I know opened up the e-mail concerning these "dangerous yogurts" and simply laughed it off as yet another example of why some folks in the AF shouldn't be allowed to touch a computer, and yet another example of an O-6 (the one who thought this was a good idea and approved the message) who needs to find another career choice (preferably one where they can't approve stupid ideas like this, and aren't in the vicinity of any sharp objects).

    2) The vast majority of the AF finds the Army... well, we actuallly just ignore them. It gets tiring having to continually draw cartoons to explain simple things to them, like zippers. :biggrin:

    I like that on MRE's there is a drawing of a "rock or something" to explain that the user should prop up the heating pouch while cooking. :eek:

    There is a good reason MRE's come with such detailed instructions, if they did not, well you can only imagine.

    Marines would just eat the whole thing without opening them.
    Army would try and heat them over a fire.
    Navy would be too busy seeing if they float.
    Air Force would starve waiting for someone to serve them.
    Coast Guard....well they're never that far from a McDonalds.

    You've seen an MRE? Were you at a museum or something?

    This from the service that needs instructions on yogurt.
