Leave the family and go unacompannied, really trash the arrse out of the tax-free system, ie, get a big fcuk-off Merc or Bemmer, take it back, register it, and sell it to some stupid civi for a ridiculaus price and along with your op tax free bonus take the wife and kids on a holiday of a lifetime to make up for it.
Having read the thread, Bowmanator how many times do you have to be told to go before you really p*ss them off. Do glasgow send out assignment orders or requests? I understand the family stuff but if you dont like it you know where the door is
people wonder why retention is low with comments like that. theres lots of places to choose from how hard can it be to actually sit there and hammer out a place for him. great idea to just send people out willy nilly, the system is arse. thats why we are undermanned.
bowmanator, did you fill out the special requests bit on your ppp?
The question for bowmanator is this would we be having this thread if 4 Bde where not warned off for an Op tour. We all know the plans for 4 Bde and they need to put bums to seats. Sometimes these things just have to be done
How come they are moving you after a year? I've seen it a lot when someone gets a promotion, so it becomes a bit of a carrot and stick, but not sure your circumstances. Not sure why your tour length would shrink to 12 months for no reason.
