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 was at Kelly AFB, Texas and trying to go to school. They opened a post that only I could fill and that stopped me from going to school. I did not get promoted. I was tired of putting up with all the nonsense.
