chad hall activated for 49's playoff game 


Just saw and heard that Chad Hall is on the active roster and is play today in the playoff game. Just saw him almost catch a pass but it was deflected by a defender. Congrats for Chad being on the active roster.

I really hope he gets a chance to play in the Super Bowl....and hopefully get a ring.

However, in my view there is possible downside...the coaches will use it to inflate recruits the chance of playing in the NFL, and bring players not truly committed to the USAF. I'm all for NFL direct...but only if the players can earn and maintain a real AFSC (not public affairs) in the reserves in the off-season.

Isn't Public Affairs a “real” AFSC, IYO?  You statement sounds as though you think only people rated positions are true AF members and warriors. 

I had several AFSCs over the past 27 years and while I didn't always get what I wanted I did the best at every job and believe I added value.  I saw more Comm, IO/IW, Civil Eng, Logistics, Security, Intel, Linguist and Combat Camera guys at risk and often taking fire.  And there are some AFA grads in that list.

My point is I never belittle anyone's service (unless in jest) when it’s done in earnest and to the best of their ability.  If Chad or anyone else finds a position that meets their needs as well as the service it’s all the better, or would you rather have a disgruntled officer forced into a job they don't want?

This is just a blog, but it's good to see people recognizing the fact that he's playing in the Super Bowl, and by extension the USAFA gets a little press. 

Blog post on Chad hall

BTW, Chad was a MX officer, not PA.  And those guys are legit...my circuit breakers don't reset themselves!

One of the guys I work with was the Squadron Commander of the Viper unit Chad supported as a MX officer. He said Chad did a great job as an officer in our Air Force. I'll be rooting for SF on Sunday so he gets that ring!
