Lt Col Jason (Pwnman) Williams Tries to Convince His Wife to Lie to the Air Force

Lt Col Jason P. Williams apparently deleted his Reddit comment (or perhaps it's back now) but either way I thought it was worth sharing here.  It's not everyday you see a former IG, fresh from teaching AFROTC cadets about the Core Values, admit he tried to convince his wife to lie to the Wright Patterson AFB housing office.  While he tries to convince his wife to let him lie to ensure the rules don't apply to him through deception, Lt Col Williams was incredibly gleeful that airmen would be kicked out of the Air Force for refusing to take the COVID vaccine.  For somebody of no character, rules are to be enforced upon others they don't agree with but do not apply to them.

At least his wife had some integrity.  

Anyway, here is the conversation shared for posterity.

 Here's a gem of a conversation from 2014 where Jason Williams advocated for assassinating American citizens without charge or trial.  Like his "rules are rules" stance, when the rule is "life, liberty, or property will not be taken without due process of law" that rule doesn't apply to him even if he swears before God to abide by it:

Space A the Latest Benefit to Be Taken Away From Military Retirees?

26 Apr 22 Update:  Space A Travel is back

Many military bases are now no longer requiring masks.  Civilian airlines don't require vaccines to fly, yet military space available travel is still shut down to military retirees regardless of vaccination status, recent negative testing, or natural immunity.

Perhaps this is simply the military moving slowly as usual.  There has been no update since the retirement benefit was suspended one year ago.  An article on Military.com from September of 2021 asked the question:

The world is reopening, travel to many countries is now possible, and civilian flights have resumed their routes. Many military families are now asking, "When will Space-Available (Space-A) travel reopen?" We posed this question to Air Mobility Command and here, we will share their response, plus help you prepare for the eventual resumption of this popular benefit. 

The article concludes that AMC has no idea when Space A benefits will resume.  But after all this time, and history, one wonders if this isn't yet another benefit being conveniently taken from military retirees.
