Not really, its an option for a lot. Not sure if thats a 6 year contract or not, but they do get to do some really cool ass shit! But I believe their training is right at a year, some tough stuff too!
Intelligence, yea, kinda cut and dry boring, I get briefed by those guys all the time, they are necessary, but def. a lame job!
But if you wanted to be a jet mechanic or something, look at the Flying Crew Chief position, get to work on jets and travel where ever they go.
If your more the action seeker, than yea, infantry sounds great, but I personally always loved how the Air Force treats their people. You should look into Tac P, they pretty much Air Force guys attached to the Army/Marines. They go every where with them, and usually with the guys that first go into hostile areas.
I feel the same way about the briefings we get during firefighting.
Not really a big mechanic type. I like wrenching on the truck from time to time, but not big on working on engines.
I will deffinatly look into Tac P. Sounds like its an ass kicker
