So, random curiosity, does David Crane of Defense Review know anything about what he reports on, or is he really a complete joke like almost everyone seems to think?

Sadly, it is not to be. At least not yet. I was a non-select for Non-Rated Board 13OT03. From what I heard, the selection rate was only 16% this time around, and they took almost nobody whose degree was not in a technical or physical science-related field (I'm a social scientist by training). Damn sequester...

Guess I'll have to wait 180 days to apply again. I'm also probably going to try the Army and Navy.

So I was just given an entire Air Force track suit complete with two pairs of running shorts and a pair of AF-issue boots (only the jacket fit me), four old patches (two branch tags and two Airman First Class rank patches), a set of A1C rank pins, an Air Force training ribbon, two name tags, and a CD case with several movies and music CDs in it.

My bad, I applied Thursday. Pretty soon, I'll be doing something having to do with electronics at my local Target

I'm pretty sure I got stupid lucky in that there were no jobs to be had around here before I started looking for one, but now it seems everyone is hiring

So it seems Congress has called bullshit on the military putting brand identity before effectiveness when designing camo and ordered a return to joint-service patterns within five years.

Who do y'all think is going to start bitching first?

Just pull the plug on this ridiculous "trademark" bullshit that the Marines have on MARPAT (which actually works), standardize it for all branches, and be done with it. I know they tried to make a big stink about SOCOM's AOR patterns, but got shut down quick.

Funny how the Corps has no issue with the Georgians wearing it, yet they get up in arms at the mere suggestion of their countrymen in the same military wearing it. :mad:
