Everybody takes leave. That's pilot maintenance, a huge waste of taxpayer dollars would be to burn them out.

I'm not talking about regular leave.

I suppose no male pilots, with millions of dollars of training spent on them, have to take leave for illness or family emergency or maybe he even decides he doesn't want to be a pilot.

I don't believe they're out for a year but I just don't know..Again most of there women are career military, they have a 6 year commitment if the military paid for college and an additional 3 years the second they graduate from flight school. The military has them for at least 9 years if they fly. Officer careers tend to be longer than enlisted especially if they're getting promoted 28 to 30 years if the make it O-6. Women can be soldiers and mothers too just like they can have a career and be mothers too this is not an either or situation. A year or two of pay for a Captain or Major is a small price to pay for a content family, motivated soldier, and happy children.

My wife get three years paid (not at full salary) and she doesn't have to go to war for a year every other year..

I foresee an increase in the phenomena commonly referred to as "queen for a year"

My PSG and I were big on accountability of enlisted females to ensure they weren't "bartering".

Some of the stuff that happens during deployment is embarrassing.

I'm not disputing that there should be a family, just that doing it while you're supposed to be flying is a misallocation of resources.

And you don't choose to get sick rdowns, nor do you choose emergencies, with contraception, you do choose pregnancy.

I knew women in the AFROTC who comissioned as officers. The Air Force is much better off for having such outstanding officers, part-time or not. It would be a loss to the country if they chose a different career in order to have kids.

Yeah, if they've been getting pregnant during good flying years it's been a misallocation of resources.

Yup, I read what I write. Care to point out what is wrong with what I've written?

How did I create a second class citizen?

What metric are you using to determine what constitutes this citizen?

As an commissioned officer I've had to have chats with a few 21 year old butter bars that were completely out of hand. Generally I think you're right, but junior officers are a handful at times.

I've always wondered how Officers my age or younger acted when not at work.

Assuming you mean 22-25 age range, if they aren't married or at work, same as other people. Watching TV at home, out at bars, etc...

yup. On the whole though, smarter and more mature because they've at least been to college and they aren't 18.

I think it's rare to find a "smarter" LT straight out of college. Hell, even CPT's are dumb.

I have nothing against Officers, but one thing that annoys me the most is they think just because they read a book on war strategies, that they actually know what to do. Remembering what a book says goes out the window when bullets start flying. I'm a firm believer that prior enlisted officers are better.

The problem with prior enlisted officers is they try to be NCO's instead of being officers
