Not that this will help, but several years ago I was told no more courses for 8-9 months, three weeks later I was called with a start date. HR do not always have the best information so I wouldn't...

I'd take what you see on 4 corners about military matters with a grain of salt. I seem to remember a beat up on the replacement of the F111 with the Super Hornet, a decision both Air Force and the...
