Not specifically my lane, but most folks I know wouldn't use the X identifier in their AFSC (MOS) when asked what it was. When asked he would/should probably say 1T271 or 1T051 or whatever his skill level happend to be when he was active duty. I can't recall the last time I added in the X into my AFSC for anything.

This has been my experience unless PJ or SERE do refer to their AFSC that way.

He's not in the PJ data base. I have put out more specific vetting request to a few key active duty people in the PJ community. The RCC assignment will be the most easy to get some whois vetting from. Also Grand is correct, when disclosing my AFSC I refer to the AFSC I was awarded and not the generic description. My resume lists my AFSC just as it appears on my DD-214. Every PJ I know does the same.

There is no combined PJ/SERE duty AFSC, his awarded AFSC was one or the other, he performed duties in one or the other. PJs may augment RCC during period of specific mission activity to give go/no-go recommendations concerning PJ employment and other PJ team command and control decisions, but they generally are not assigned a permanent duty position in a RCC. SERE lacks the mission quals to be in a RCC, don't know why any SERE would ever past, present or future have a RCC duty assignment connected to performing duties of SERE AFSC.

BTW the RCC at Honolulu Hawaii is operated as a Joint RCC by the Coast Guard.

FYI

johca, there were (are?) slots in the JRCC (now RCC?) that are SERE guys.

SERE guys have been assigned to the JRCC as far back as 1991 in the Gulf.

Advisory position, not on PJ employment issues, on other issues (JPRA oriented...) as well as a "predictive" analysis duty.

This guy, however, is not a SERE guy based on what I've read so far...

The Joint RCC in Honolulu Hawaii area of responsibility is not one having any active military combat zone. Its purpose is support of the National and International SAR Plans (Civilian humanitarian purpose). The AF manning mix at the USAF RCC according to current UMD is:

Rated leadership (CC/DO/SAR School Chief)

Officers (86P0): Career broadening

Enlisted (1C3X1): C2 Specialists; Special Duty coded.

I lack awareness of any reason for a SERE member being assigned to a JRCC having purpose to support National and International SAR Plans. It is unlikely a Coast Guard operated JRCC would have any Air Force members assigned to it that are not Rated Officer, AFSC 86P0, and AFSC 1C3X1.

The RCCs in the combat theaters exist for DOD purpose pertinent to isolated personnel recovery (DOD Directive 2310.2, Personnel Recovery/JP 3-50.2, Doctrine for Joint Combat Search and Rescue) and not because of the National or International SAR Plan (Civilian humanitarian purpose). There were also PJs asigned to the wartime Desert Shield/STORM Joint Force RCC.

The SERE are in those positions because of combat SERE reasons and it is my understanding the Joint Force RCCs in the combat theaters have been restructured into being more thoroughlly integrated or merged into the theater Air Operation Centers.

Yup... No SERE on the RCC staff in a non-combat theater.

If this guy is claiming to be a PJ & a SERE guy, I can clear up the SERE guy claim quickly. Someone PM me his name and rank.

FYI-ca 1997 or a few years later; duty title of Superintendent is used for SNCOs in charge of group- or wing-level functions, or in a squadron when having either oversight of functions within other squadrons or within the same squadron (for example, Aircraft Maintenance Unit Superintendent and Command Post Superintendent). Only SNCOs (E-7, E-8, E-9) will hold the duty title of Superintendent. Reference AFI 36-2618, The Enlisted Force Structure, chapter 7, Enlisted Duty Titles.

From assignment history given it would seem the appropriate duty title would be-- Squadron Superintendent. Used for a CMSgt, and occasionally a SMSgt or MSgt, who is the senior enlisted leader of a squadron (for example, Squadron Superintendent, 19th Maintenance Squadron). Only SNCOs will hold the duty title of Squadron Superintendent.

Concurrent with this change duty title of Chief became restricted to use for CMSgts who are program, project, or policy managers at NAF, MAJCOM, DRU, FOA, Joint Staff, or Air Staff levels. They may or may not have personnel working for them and may be the enlisted leader of the branch, division, or directorate (for example, Chief, Air Force Enlisted Force Development; and Chief, Airmen Assignments).

I already ran the name through AFSOC and ACC active duty contacts several weeks ago. Nobody had any name recognition. I am in process of running the name through some HQ AETC and PACAF contacts, but they are very busy and it may be a couple of weeks before they can do some inquiries for me. He's not a former PJ and it's unlikely he is SERE. Helicopter Flight Engineers, Helicopter door gunners, HC-130 loadmaster and HC-130 Flight engineers do not get RCC assignments and "claims he all but wrote the CSAR manual" for somebody not performing pararescue duties is very unlikely.

Have followed this thread for awhile and am now sending out feelers.

The pacom sere guy should be able to answer about the pacaf rcc experience (but won't be in till tomorrow, monday his time), and I'm asking back at the sere schoolhouse too. It sure sounds like a bunch of BS.

I'll write 1T0X1 on some forms, but I would NEVER claim 1T2/1T0. They are completely different and anyone who's been either understands. Is it possible he was PJ and cross-trained to sere or vice-versa? Sure, but he says he stayed one AFSC his whole career...

Sounds fishy.

I appreciate all the help with this one. His "stink" meter is definitely pegged on this one. He's back off vacation and acting like a complete ass. Completely blew off the shift change brief last week. Took all 40 days of leave he had built up and had the balls to call the team lead and ask for 2 more days. Definitely not a team player.

More info.

Just talked to the pacaf sere functional. No sere guy by the name of williams has ever worked at the Pacific RCC.

So SERE experience is out. Let us know what happens.

All data has been given to the site lead as he has used AFSOC assignments in conversation with company leadership. Can't say more at this time. Will update as soon as possible.

I guess it is politically honest and truthful these days to use AFSOC credential card if you were a uniformed member of the Air Force these days.

Here’s is a raising star actor embellishing his military resume through use of pretense and vague disclosure.

Apparently he served eight years Air Force enlisted in special operations and a Pararescue unit. Unfortunately, the only Pararescue unit during the period was the 1730th Pararescue Squadron and he was not a PJ in that unit or a deployable member of this unit. The only athletic enlisted Air Force special operations action jobs, sorry SOWT and TACP, during the 1980-1993 period was being PJ or CCT. So I wonder what his AFSC was?

he discloses in below video interview he served eight years in Air Force Special Operations doing something athletic and fun, participated in Operation Just Cause , Operation Desert Storm and with a Drug Interdiction team or force.

Apparently the division head had a one on one conversation with this idividual. Not sure what was said, but the guy hasn't said 3 words to me or anyone in the last week. I suspect he got his ass handed to him and reminded where the door was.

More than likely he knows his military background is being looked into and is sweating what the inquiry discovers might be enough for current employer to say a fase or exagerated resume influnced the hiring of the lass qualified applicant. Too bad his AFSC didn't get revealed as this would put his being a rough and tough combat special operations veteran claims into quick discovery.
