re: For those with diabetes: thoughts on Freestyle Libre CGM? - USAF_Vol
I’m using the Medtronic guardian right now. It’s been very accurate and not very accurate I do t think any CGM will replace finger sticks. Well for Type 1s anyway. We still have to calibrate every 12 hours and you can get wild swings all the time. ...

re: Why do ex Gov employees get to keep their security clearance? - USAF_Vol
You don’t lose eligibility. It’s the “need to know” that walks when you don’t have the “ need to know”. Eligibility does expire eventually after a time period without a reinvestigation. That said. Some top people that left still retain the ability to be briefed on things. I’ve seen lots of r...

re: 155 years ago today, Vicksburg fell: - USAF_Vol
Are you kidding? Look how long it took him to complete moving his army to lay siege. The terrain alone was the worst an army could encounter. Rivers, bayous and flood plains. He had his navy run the guns to give him a chance. Once below the guns he had to drive further south in the bayou...

re: Airbag recall rental car - USAF_Vol
A coworker of mine got the same recall. She contacted the local ford dealer and they gave her a loaner ford rental. They were adamant it had to be a ford loaner. The dealer only had a limited number of loaners so they started wait listing. They advised to not drive it until fixed. ...

re: Pentagon to take over security clearance checks - USAF_Vol
I work PERSEC in the AF. We are already seeing some info come from these automated checks. Called “Continous Evaluation”. Most have been financial stuff and unreported civil arrests. I imagine it will drive up Security Specialist workload with having to answer these reports. It will get cumb...

Battle Cry of Freedom - USAF_Vol
I’ve read numerous civil war books but never this one. Considered a complete history of the subject. I’m no amateur on the topic. Should I read just for the sake of it? I have others on deck. Tired of the single focal point biography type reads. Thoughts book board?...
