The air Force and security Forces changed a lot in the 4 yrs I was in for. I loved my job and wanted to do 20 yrs, but the civilians at Wright-Patterson and my leadership made the job harder and more stressful than it should have been. Ive always had terrible leadership except for a handful of NCOs and one officer. My old squadron has no morale and has almost no retainability. If you're going to join or already in, do not go to Wright-Patterson, it's where careers go to die. You are better off going to the missile field or a combat squadron.

I joined the Air Force with a B-Class felony and later became commissioned. On behalf of my recruiter and I, it took a tremendous amount of time. I had to build a portfolio full of letters from every person I knew supporting my character and ability to perform in our armed forces. I believe I even contacted my state senate to write on my behalf. A waiver was also something that was required... but I got in!

I'll say yes but they don't want you to take classes that have nothing to do with your job. For Example: I was Law Enforcement (Criminal Justice) but I wanted to take computer programming classes - they did not like that. Also, don't expect to get a degree in 4 years - they will keep you so busy that there is almost no time to go to school - and when you to go they will try and stop you.

Yes. Just make sure the AFSC for the job you want is ON THE CONTRACT!!! Do not sign the contract until the job you want is on it. The recruiter may be very unwilling to do this. He has a quota to meet. That is when you involve your senator.
