Seymour Johnson has a hospital/clinic right? If so, call or go see the tricare office there. They deal with this stuff everyday. Its a no brainer.

No not really.

The catch is...I lived really well when was AD, very well. They key was I was responsible with my money. My family was always taken care of, food and shelter was always provided and we got to do pretty much what we wanted to. As I have said before I didn't join for the money...I love the military and all it has done for me.

Oops. Backed an Ez-go into a base supply truck today. Put a small scratch in the plastic bumper, no damage to the easy go. Had to call SF cause it was the right thing to do and he pretty much laughed at it.

ROTC then AF then into your perspective field. If you can afford to go to college, graduate, and get your degree and want to apply it to the armed forces then that is the best career path.

Getting a degree then enlisting is going about it *** backwards. But I know a few good officers because they were prior enlisted and got their degree THEN applied to OTS. This is the best way to do it if you CANNOT afford to go to college and want a degree and to become an officer.

Bottom line is that its harder to commision already as an enlisted troop. Its easier to get a slot out of college with a degree. Go to ROTC then come in O-type. Dont even bother enlisting unless you cant finish college.

I was planning on the first route youpsoted, ROTC then getting into the AF in my field. which would be mechanical engineering. the previous post i had read was alittle confusing to me, but thanks for clearing it all up

Nellis is fun. You have everything to do here in Vegas. NASCAR (and every other form of racing), UFC, clubbing, hiking, etc. So much **** to do. Tho **** here is pretty lax, which sucks.

i never knew we had a nato base in kabul... are you sure its not Kandahar Airfield about 45km from Kabul? I was there from nov08-may09 and i got the ISAF badge from it.

i know we have two main bases that AF is affiliated with. Bagram and Kandahar and Kandahar is the second largest base compared to Bagram and its the closest to Kabul.

so if you want to know any details onthe base pm me ill tell you all about it

e-1 through e-4 is basically time in service. you can get SrA below the zone 6 months early if you play your cards right. they can deny promotions if you're a dirtbag, but who knows.

e-5 and up you have to test for as far as I know
