The United States Air Force is a great way of life
Master Sergeant (Former Employee) – Various; last duty location Shaw AFB, Sumter SC – April 28, 2016
I retired from a colorful and unique career in the USAF after 24 years. I worked hard to serve my country and I enjoyed the technically satisfying job of maintaining classified and unclassified mission critical secure communications circuits. I have also enjoyed the opportunity to do a wide breadth of opportunities most people will never have. I have traveled THE WORLD (Europe and Asia). The experience I have is more than anyone can have in any particular field in the civilian sector; as the diversity of environments and tasks I have had to perform can only be rivaled by another, who was also in the military.
"...we live in fame, or go down in flame, hey! Nothing will stop the U.S. Air Force!"
You are taken care of; steady work and pay
The steady work can be 12hrs per day and 6 days a week (if deployed), it can also be in challenging environments
