    Back in the USAF with Security Forces on a Snowing cold wet night. But on this very special night, I was to be working the relief truck. I was happy thinking I would not have to be out in the cold for the full tour of my Nightshift 9-PM until 7-AM. Tonight my canine would have a night-off staying in the kennel thinking about where I was. lol. As the Troop Truck departed the Canine compound. My fellow canine officer and my self-were giving detailed instructions by the Shift Supervisor (Surgent) as to what our mission was to be, We left his office with big smiles on our face knowing we were not assigned to take part in any night games in the wet snow.

    We were driving the other one of...

    Hello,
    I have been struggling for a few years now trying to join the Air force. I would really appreciate any advice or guidance. I will try to give as brief a backstory to this as possible, but it is quite complicated. I wanted to become an Air Force pilot and I decided to apply for the January 2017 board. I started my application process very early, in May of 2016. The first paper application I submitted had all four rated position checked, but I realized my mistake and sent a correct application with only pilot listed. They confirmed that they had received and submitted this corrected application. I received a phone call in March of 2017 from a Technical Sergeant who told me I had...

    I enlisted in the USAF out of high school as I wanted to get into Law Enforcement as a Police Officer. One could say it all started at a Police Explorer meeting, as our post (which I was post president) had invited two USAF Recruiters to talk with us about Military Police careers in the USAF. We took a few tests as the USA had done away with the draft in about 1968 or 1969. So bottom line I did not have to join having a high lottery number. So here is a bit of how it went down in 1971. After testing with the recruiter I was given a GTR a travel slip to take a BUS from Clearwater, Florida down to Miami, Florida, staying in a hotel until the morning when the induction center opened for...

    Hello, I decided my sophomore year of college that I want to follow my family tradition and have a full career in the us army. I want to use my CS degree to join as an officer and I only want to have a combat related job. Such as infantry, armor, or artillery. But I am worried that when I complete ocs they will assign me to a computer related job because of the needs of the army. Which I would hate! My releatives that have served are older and they do not know about computer related jobs in the army. I want to be on the front line of the defense of this amazing country.
    Thank you for your time.
