Another event of note happened today. Right now, we are in academics with the contracted instructors, not active duty military. Today, as a full class we went to the squadron to watch an example formal brief. The formal brief is what separates the Air Force from the Navy. Every day for a period time, once we get to the squadron, we have these formal briefs. They consist of all the traditional military formalities of standing at attention and such. During the brief, though, two students are presented a situational emergency procedure (ep). They go stand in front of the class at attention and work their way through the ep. It is not fun and kind of a pain in the butt, but whatever. Then there is the "shotgun" questions that involve the IP asking us random questions about the aircraft limits, etc... This is also not fun. So, anyway, we got to see an example one today. Hopefully this won't be too painful.
Until next time, pray for SURF.
