After three years of helping Farva with AFBlues, I asked him if there was anything I could do to contribute to the site in a more visible manner. The idea was an “Ask Marco” column of some kind. I figure I’m pretty well-known for my regulation-researching abilities, so maybe I could actually contribute in a constructive way.

So, maybe you’ve got a situation that you want advice about. Maybe you want to know if you really are prohibited from taking your that day pass from the commander on a Friday to milk that three day weekend, or if your supervisor is just being a douche. (Your supervisor is being a douche. Combinations of pass periods to include special passes (day pass) and regular passes (weekends) can be up to four days. AFI 36-3003, Military Leave Program, Sections 8.2 and 8.3.)

Bonus points if you send me a question that makes me go WTF? when I read it.

The way we’re going to try to work it initially is this: Questions for the week should be in by midnight Sunday, submitted via the Contact Marco link on the homepage. That gives me a week to find answers. I’ll probably pick two or three questions to answer each week. The answers will be posted along with Friday’s comic.

If anyone has any suggestions, feel free to let me know.
