The USAF molded me into a very skilled individual.
Pros: structure, security, recognization
Cons: deployments, timing
Being an USAF Airman was a 24/7 responsibility. You were not just providing an impression of yourself to others; with that uniform you were representing your shop, Flight, Squadron, Country, etc. With my almost nine years, each of my jobs involved leadership skills, time management, quick decision making, conflict resolution, and responsibility. The – more... most difficult challenge in the military are the constant changes. These issues would test your abilities and your reactions. I truly loved that there was always something more I could learn about certain tasks, programs, maintenance, etc. Everything seemed to be a never ending learning or training experience. – less
