re: If you could only have 1 beer for the rest of your life - AFTiger
So reading this, the real takeaway is that with so many good beers out there it would suck mightily to have to choose just one. That said, if forced to choose at gun point I'd probably choose Shiner Black or Bells Two Hearted. Red. No, blue! Aaaaaaaahhhhhhhhh.......

Sorry guys I can't post pics on here (actually just don't know how, apparently it has to be hosted?). If you can tell me how to upload from a computer vs. a website I'll give it a shot. Happy to send pics via email too. As for shipping him, never thought about that. Might be able to drive him ...

OT Dog Lovers--need help fast! - AFTiger
A friend's son in San Antonio has to move out of his place and can't keep his pup until he finds another place that allows dogs. Shepherd-Boxer mix, 13 months old, about 40 lbs, all shots, neutered, very lovable and energetic. Do any of you know someone who can either foster short term or who is i...

Alright gents, off to the gym. To the OP, good luck and keep your chin up--your CC obviously sees something in you, maybe he'll figure out the leadership thing....

It's a tax exclusion by month, limited to (capped) at the highest enlisted base pay (close to $7900 per month right now). Essentially, in a combat zone you pay taxes on anything you make over $7900 in a month. ...

Actually no it's not....there's a limit on the amount of pay exempted from taxation in a combat zone. Go to the DFAS website for some education....

re: Military Men: How did you deal with angry/difficult Commanders? - AFTiger
Having been a commander, I have to ask--why do you think he holds you to a different standard? If he indeed envisions you as a future commander yourself, maybe he is trying to build you into a leader. Of course, it sounds like he's screwing it up--every person responds to different stimuli, and th...

re: Pound for Pound Toughest Tiger of All Time - AFTiger
That would be Steve Rehage I believe--special teams specialist and the craziest mofo I've ever seen play the game. He would fly down the field on kickoffs like a guided missile, scary as hell. He get's my vote for top 5 here with Hester, Martin, Chad Jones, Laron Landry....

re: Calling OT Pilots/Military People - What's this mean? - AFTiger
As for the unit--if I were looking to pull this off, I would call your local ANG or ArNG aviation unit and see what they think about supporting. They usually fly on the weekends, so that's your best bet. I can ALMOST guarantee you won't be able to find an active duty unit with the capacity to do t...

Check out the last page with the instructions, and read it all very carefully--it's a minefield of a form. The last note tells you where to send it all, with the appropriate addresses....

re: Calling OT Pilots/Military People - What's this mean? - AFTiger
Yep, thats part 1 per note 2 of the instructions. If you read further, you'll see you need to gain FAA conditional approval (which you have) THEN send it to one or more of the Services to see if any will support it. It helps immensely if you have a unit already volunteering to do it, though it's n...

re: Calling OT Pilots/Military People - What's this mean? - AFTiger
Your best bet is to call a unit in the local area, especially if you have a guard or reserve unit. What type event is it? While I won't say it's never been done, this is definitely not an easy thing to make happen if there is no benefit to the Service in expending the resources....

re: Calling OT Pilots/Military People - What's this mean? - AFTiger
Joe, I was under the impression you sent the request to a military service. What you have is conditional approval from the FAA only--they won't coordinate with the services to find the unit, you'll have to do that yourself. Sorry if my last post was confusing....
