Paul A’s Answer

I was in the Air Force as an enlisted person. I spent 3 years in sunny Riverside, Ca at March Air Force Base. My favorite answer when I was asked growing up was what do you want to get out of school? - My answer was "Just me!". Obviously, a wee bit immature, I was. My point is that my 4 years in the air force allowed me time to mature and provided some money to pay for college after I got out. I was in personnel administration, others were in aircraft maintenance, Air Police, Air Traffic Controllers or in IT fields. I graduated college with a degree in Psychology which I never ever thought was possible when I was younger. This is a great way to explore life, grow up, while being paid, board and room provided free, 30 days vacation and they give you money for school when you get out and you make a lot of new friends.


The downside is its 4 years but nobody is shooting at you or you at them!

The military provides many benefits from college, traveling, paycheck and new skills. There are also drawbacks as well, I served for 13 years and still continue to serve in the Air National Guard today. I would not trade it for anything, when I was younger I had a blast. It wasn't until much later, married with children I started to ease up on the deployments. Just remember life is what you make it, have a good attitude and you can get through anything. I even had fun while serving in the worst of conditions.

Brent’s Answer

I was enlisted in the Air Force for 24 years. I am retired from service now and work for Verizon as a Technician doing pretty close to the same job as I did in the Air Force. I grew up in a small town and the Air Force really helped me grow up and find myself. I did not plan on making it a career but ended up staying for 24 years. The Air Force has a lot to offer and has a lot of training and education opportunities. I moved around a lot durring my time and got to see a good bit of the world. The Air Force offers many careers so start researching now to see if there is an area that you are intersted in. Next I wold talk to a recruiter in your area to see what they have to offer. Remember, they are trying to fill slots so don't let them talk you into joining in a job you dont' want. Don't go general anything! In my 24 years I completed a lot of education and a lot of training that helped me land a good job later. Even if you only do 4 years, you will still leave with your education benefits that will help you pay for schooling. Dorms and food are not to bad and it will give you time to grow while being paid and learning a skill. Your first year is the hardest. You will go to Basic training and then onto career training before you get an assignment to a duty location. Once at your duty location things change a lot. You will still have to complet you continuing skill training to advance your skill level but you will have a lot of freedom to enjoy your life. Just FYI. Once you talk to a recruiter, the other services will try and convince you to join. Hope this helps.
