First, Lynne: I've seen you walk, dragging one leg. I've also seen the building you work in, with curbside parking for management. And not one of them could spare their spot for you? Instead, they had to think about whether a woman with MS should walk 3 blocks/twice a day vs. creating a handicap spot for you? Then, after much thought, they said, yep. In 100+ temps in the summer, sub zero temps in the winter, the handicapped woman can walk 3 blocks, so that a manager can walk 20 paces? That's leadership for ya. Why does it take so long to make the right decision? This should be insulting to Hill AFB and the base commander. Who were these managers? Did they graduate elementary school? What a vindictive and dickish thing to do.
Now, Mr Coots, you're obviously not entirely alone in your experiences with immature, unprofessional managers. I've had my experiences with bad mangers at Hill AFB. I wish I could get paid a GS-13, do less work, and bully people, but I was enlisted in the AF and it's not in my nature to treat people like dirt. I agree that the base support groups are lacking. Personally, I know I wouldn't use them. Hang in there and I'm sure things will improve for you. Good luck and thank your service and for sharing your story.
