    Congrats, I am glad you are willing to serve your country no matter which branch. The Air Force serves a purpose we need someone to fly us to the next small country that needs invaded. Remember the Air Force Aimes High the Marine Corps Never misses! Semper Fi I am still motivated after 19+ years. My father is retired AF and my step-son is serving the big blue now.

    Hes right!! I had 23 years USAF. Last 16 as a C5 Flight Engineer.
    I started in the Air Cav, and transfered after 6 years. I had
    more fun flying FRED than any time in my life! Visited lovely spots like
    Kuwait City shortly after Saddams folks left, but I drank a lot of
    beer in Frankfurt between missions.
    Good luck!!
    Thanks to ALL of the military folks keeping us free today. I think of you often. I am retired, but cherished my military career.

    I'm almost 24 years and a 3C0X1. Time sure has flown. Good to see young, smart folks coming up behind me to keep the mission going. I'll be retiring 1 Dec.

    The best advice I can give: make things happen for you instead of sitting back and letting them happen.

    I worked the NATO Help Desk there, helping childish O-5s who kicked desks when angry fix their Word document and purging porn on the secret network every time I found it (haha). We stayed at a hotel on the beach, I think it was North of the base about 10 mins? Drank alot of beer at night, capuccino in the mornings, and must've gained 10 pounds from the freakin' awesome food.
