Check this out. 69 initiatives to keep AF pilots. My guess is it won't change a thing at all.

Especially considering just a couple years ago there was a memo floating around where an OG/CC outright banned the use of the word "69".

Yup. A solo T-38 went to the Duty Desk for his step brief. He was assigned the callsign “Conda 69.”

The Supe almost busted him...for something he had no part in.

This particular supe was part of the “squadron leadership,” and one of the worst examples I ever saw in a career spanning three decades.

You know there was at least one miserable staff pilot helping put this together who somehow found another initiative to push it from 68 to 69. Just like the dude who built tactical entry waypoints into Bagram back in the day, I remember arriving one day reporting sofa then king, then a few days later is was dixie then wreckd. I don't think it lasted very long before they changed again.

I flew my initial T-38 solo at CBM with that callsign...

Worst examples?

140 less staff slots at the Deid...have to love the fact that it was that ridiculously high in the first place. Less deployments? Fat chance. Reducing exercises? Hopefully this was just lost in translation and they meant TDYs. Less exercises means less readiness. But, less TDYs will help. We've all been on TDYs where the crew is all wondering "why the eff are we here?"
