    Happy Birthday Air Force Tweet from Your State Dept Buds

    I'm "guessing" that this is the Angel's being good "wingmen" and saluting their brethren in the AF. If it's supposed to be an AF salute...someone needs retraining on blue-on-blue "threats." Steve

    CFA Calculator

    I'm going to echo my "learned" friend, OldRetSWO...I've been an ALO for 25 years, and in that time I've probably averaged 25-35 candidates each year. I can count on both hands (once) the total number of candidates that the CFA was an issue for: those are the failures. And I knew they would...

    Dame Diana Rigg RIP 9/10/2020

    Well....that may be the case early formative years (ages 6-11 1/2) were in the UK. I returned to a country I didn't really know, I dressed "different" and was constantly told, "you talk funny..." by people that sounded like my parents but not like the people I grew up around, went to...

    How is the USAFA Commandant selected?
