    I submitted for a humanitarian assignment because of my mom's current health. It was approved and I was notified of my assignment in less than a week. I can't believe how helpful EVERYONE has been to be while trying to get this done!

    I'm going to Tinker.. wish me luck!

    Wouldn't any other branch of service approve a humanitarian assignment?

    grats. glad they got you out so quick. when i was in iraq my mom got in a serious accident the day before i was suppose to leave. had some fuck ups at first getting things going but i was out of there the very next day w/ flights all the way back home already booked. i was very thankful and impressed w/ the coordination and ability they had to get things moving when they really needed it.

    I don't know if any other branch would.. I just know the ir Force did for me.

    And come on guys.. Tinker isn't so bad. I grew up in Oklahoma so it's home to me.

    All the Oklahoma hate has me a bit worried. It looks like I have a higher than 90% chance at being at Tinker. :noes:

    Tinker is not that bad....I had orders there and looked into it

    okc is a nice big city and cheap housing

    shitty part is most of the area is employed by the base so I just assume its a huge cluster fuck to get on and off.

    better than being at altus

    i'm at tinker and coming from san diego,ca its really not that bad. oklahoma city has alot to do, housing is cheap, gun laws are awesome, and the winter sucks (to cold for me but i'm used to sunny CA). the base is fairly easy to navigate and has a good bx/commissary. i donno why people hate on it so much. i wonder if they've been there recently or just hate bc its in OK.

    i have not seen that yet. but the awesome thing about OK is the gas is cheap enough that i can do something like that to my truck and not care about fuel economy!

    Was at Tinker from 03 - 06.

    It's like a big city without all the big city fun. I blame it on OKC being in the belt buckle of the bible belt.
