I Enlisted!

Unread postAuthor: alphaonecharlie » Thu Dec 28, 2006 9:32 pm

I enlisted today [Dec. 28] in the United States Air Force. I hope to get my preferred job choice of Airframe Maintanance. Then once my Active duty is over I can become a civilian Mech.

Anyone else here enlisted or prior service?

SOUND OFF!

“I hope to get my preferred job choice of Airframe Maintanance.”????
What’s wrong with being a fighter pilot? Do you even get to fly?
On a more serious note, have you been or are you going to go to “Top Gun” (that is what it’s called, right? It’s been awhile since I saw it on the military channel.)
Any who, good luck to ya, Semper Fi! (Yes, I know that’s the marine’s motto but I don’t care.)

Not everyone in the AF is a pilot, you know :)

Besides, I would've had to go to the Airforce Academy in Colorado Springs. It seemed a likely choice for me, before I started getting lazy in school :roll:

Also, I'm not that good of a pilot. With Airframes I can work on machines all day. I may even learn how to use a CNC Lathe, so that's pretty damn cool.

Most pilots going in and out if Iraq (in the air) are Cargo guys dropping off and picking up Army and Marines entering or leaving. Most Fighter-Bombers or strike fighters aren't being used too much these days. The grunts usually call in a AH-1 or Apache to blow some crap up. Fighters take too long. They're more strategic where a helo is tactical.

Before I enlisted I thought about being Special Forces (AF Combat Control). Those guys jump in and call airstrikes, and generally fight like SEALs and Green Berets.

Dumb Question Warning*

Do you have to go through "Boot Camp" for the air force?
