I've had several AF NCOs complain to me that you can't make airmen push or place them on "corrective" details. Maybe this is just for those 2 units, maybe it is AF wide...I have no idea. Unit leadership, AF leadership....no clue. I know it is being done (or not done in this case), but I don't know how widespread the problem.
Unfortunately no....and it's terrible. Instead we rely on giving the member paperwork that is either ineffective or has the potential to follow them far longer than it needs to and bites a good troop in the ass later on.
To save us from the public eye. Unfortunately the actions of one person is seen as the actions of all of us once it hits social media and big Air Force has to then go in and protect itself by acting to get back on the good side. And it seems like we keep putting dumb stuff on social media that takes maybe otherwise good troops, and places them in a situation that is unrecoverable because it was seen by millions of people. I have no idea the previous performance of this TSgt, she may have been a good NCO and was stressed due to inability to lead that certain personality type, which lead to a terrible decision to post her frustrations out on Facebook. Or she really is just a shitty person and that attack was directly geared toward racism. Either way it doesn't matter now because the exposure it's received.To save people from themselves? Meh.. Is the Air Force better off without this airmen?
Yea, you can... outside of my specific career field, I have never seen anyone actually do that. Like, ever.
Disagree here. There are many good ways to correct behavior without the two outcomes you mentioned.Unfortunately no....and it's terrible. Instead we rely on giving the member paperwork that is either ineffective or has the potential to follow them far longer than it needs to and bites a good troop in the ass later on.
It is annoying as shit. Everyone is "sir" or "ma'am". I never had a "thing" or an "ism" until this issue. I make it my personal mission to correct younger airmen (and some older ones) on the pride in and proper address of the enlisted corps.NCO's are called Sir/Ma'am in the USAF?
