    Some of you may remember that my career is in danger, due to the AF Force Shaping Program. I would rather not bet on receiving a Career Job Reservation, which you must have in order to reenlist, because the odds are 1 in 300. I take pain in betting 1 in 34 at the casino, and that is just money.

    A friend found out my situation and recommended me for a green door assignment. I submitted all the paperwork he told me to submit and worked the assignment. I also applied for recruiter duty at the same time, hoping one would pull through. Both of these assignments would guarantee that I would stay in the AF as a 3C2. The former would be the one I want.

    A few weeks ago I received the phone call saying that I was definitely going to the green door assignment. AFPC put a hold code on me and no one can pull me for an assignment.
    Should be getting orders sent down in mid December.

    Perks:
    • 4 year controlled tour with as many 4 year extensions as I can handle.
    • Training, good stuff too.
    • No deployments, no AEF rotations etc because I will not work for the AF.
    • Training - lots of it.
    • Mission? they wont tell me much of anything, other than the mission is awesome.
    • Did I mention an almost unlimited training budget?
    I am pretty excited.

    (Green door is what we call assignments that you cannot find, do not exist, and are pretty much secret squirrel all around.

    Green Door?

    I swear, if you are getting sent to the 92 IWAS, I will kill you.

    It was the part of the original reason I tried to join the Air Force and I believe they only send very skilled 3co/2e2/3c2's to it.

    You get to go to Defcon, travel to every single USAF base in the world to help test security. You are an active pen testers. Get sent to the nicest schools (not military but corporate) you can be in school for 2 months at a time, 8-3 all day and not have to worry about the military for that entire time.

    That is one green door that I know of. Its at Lackland though, but - you'll be out on the road so much it wouldn't matter.

    They told me I won't deploy but I will be TDY all the time.
    I don't think it is at Lackland though. I do know they are a detachment so it could be the same unit, though I doubt it because the 92nd is well known. These guys, when you call them DSN, answer the phone "This is Bill." Throws me for a loop every time.

    i have dealt with people that answer the phone like that. when i was deployed for the past 2 times, that is how i answered the phone.

    do you know what base or state you will be going to?

    I am not releasing anything that can't be found anywhere else. Believe me, I do not want to screw myself out of this.
    I do know where I am going and I will not tell anyone online.
