Aerospace Maintenance Journeyman (Former Employee) – Sacramento, CA – May 28, 2017
Join the Air Force they said, See the World they said, well, I got to see some of the world, mainly the Pacific Area of Operations. I loved ever minute of being in and encourage anyone who wants to get an education and the like to join, at the very least, for four years.
I thought of making a career in the air force but after my terrible experience where I was severely mistreated and as a result now have PTSD and have a difficult time functioning in the civilian world. I am very smart and motivated to succeed however, the shortcomings of my experience has given me a negative insight on the military as a whole.

Looking back over my 20 year career, I can truly say that the military was a great life changing experience. The one thing that I miss being in the military are the people that you meet which will be eventually be lifelong friends.
Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – U S A F Academy, CO – May 26, 2017
The hours are longer than a traditional career, but they benefits can outweigh the extra time spent at work. The Air Force has a particular culture and some bases were great, others not so much. It just depends on the person and what their goals are.
