I never discourage keep on trying. I do however discuss the causals behind the odds, probability and reasoning having disconnects in being relevant to how and why things happen or work in the real world.
I also suggest when effort in seeking use of POV isnít contributing to the retraining goal.
Being goofy is fine. However, unless somebody is a service member that goes TDY frequently, the DTS acronym for Defense Travel Service is something few recognize.
The Defense Travel Service also has no correlation or influence to retraining requests being approved or rejected. Further there is no correlation of DTS to down time between courses. It is also more than goofy to be worried about POV travel when probability of being approved to retrain is decreasing rather than increasing (odds of happening becoming unfavorable).
POV use is generally determined by those involved in funding and approving the travel orders. POV travel is also something typically approved and funded by the unit the member is assigned to, unless as I provided there is specific policy prohibiting POV travel. In regards to the training pipeline the POV use and availability is course specific. The TDY process usually involves, if POV approval is desired, doing a cost analysis comparison demonstrating using POV is more cost effective than other modes of travel to include using rental vehicle at TDY location. As pipeline students are housed in barracks, even prior service and retrain students, there is no in local area need for transportation between off base billeting, off base restaurants, and the classroom/training location.
I addressed the causals for decreasing retraining approval probabilities (odds of happening becoming unfavorable) in this post: retraining advisory frustration
However keep trying, nobody can predict when the Air Force has the sudden unexpected need.
