And still, in eight pages of responses, I've yet to see one compelling reason to even have an NCO grade program for senior members. When it comes down to brass tacks, it's dangling carrots for members (current or potential) that somehow still haven't grasped the concept that the bars or leaves on one's collar are a meaningless affectation, and shouldn't be taken at all seriously. 

I do like the earlier suggestion of just getting rid of the grades for senior members all together. Even if it was just in jest. Bag on them as we must, but at least that's one thing the CGAux gets right. Let our cadets (rightfully) worry about stripes, circles, or diamonds, and just let us do our jobs.

Hit him up about Col. Burke and heavy jet time. Or even better, ask Col. Burke.

I am currently 45 min (normal drive time) away from the totality band (here for entirely different reasons, leaving today), and the craziness has already started. That 45 minute drive is anticipated to take 7+ hours starting Sunday. No thanks. 60% pinhole camera view for me.

What's your source on that estimate?


And 45 minutes, yet only 60% coverage? What/
We are currently headed south, away from a prime viewing area. The US Highway we are on has had a steady line of traffic (many campers and RVs) northbound since got on the road at 1130. Can't wait to get on the Interstate.

Florida always has one at Tyndall, AFB over the Christmas break. Mild weather on the panhandle.

We're going to have something like 80+percent coverage right ourside my window, I can't imagine driving
14-18+ hours round trip, not including crazy traffic, etc. for 10%.  I just had lunch with a client
who >is< making the run and he said all the airpoprts he's checked indicate "stay away, we're full".

No beads, no diamond ring, no 360 sunrise colors, no seeing Venus, Jupiter, Mars, and Mercury in the middle of the day, no shadow bands. I'm too much of a geek to miss all of that.

And what happens once they open the NCO grades to every new member? Then they'll complain that the NCO grades are too watered down, just like the officer grades are now. What's next Warrant Officers?

Actually, they canned a WO program suggestion in favor of the NCO program dream.

IMO, a Warrant Officer program make more sense than an NCO program, but, I'm just a lowly member with an 'unearned' Lt Col grade. What do I know?

The local newspaper. It's 4-lane undivided highway with traffic lights.

Of much more interest here, (though for me it's only marginal for tha, either) is the A&WS.
Something fast and loud just screamed over the Loop just now.
