Any military fags? Specifically Airmen? I'm on quick ship waiting for a job to drop and am looking for advice.
>>
Yeah man, what's up?
>>
Dont go open Mechanical, you will hate your life
>>
>>612745034
What do you want to know?
>>
former maintainer, now intel here, what do you need?
>>
What should I be able to do physically going into BMT? I've been trying to work on my push ups and 1.5 mile but aren't seeing any real results.
>>
>>612746879

ideally you should be able to pass a pt test but bmt will get you there. if your recruiter is good he should be doing pt with you before you go
>>
>>612746879
put down the oreos and run some miles. you'll be fine, your recruiter should get you there.
>>
Go Maintenance. Maybe comm nav
>>
>>612745659
I went open mechanical and got Aircraft Armament (462X0...or 2W1X0 in the new faggy system). Not many civilian jobs for a weapons loader but being in a USAFE fighter squadron I got to travel a shit ton.

pic related; my old unit...shut down now.
>>
>>612747091
this

my recruiter PT'd with me every other day after i signed my contract. still didn't prepare me for what i went through in BCT (armyfag, not airforce) at benning. they'll condition you plenty
>>
>>612747397
True, good once you get out
>>
Enjoy dying faggot
>>
>>612747556
We all die ...
>>
>>612747397

comm nav isnt bad but intel life is sweet. 6 years as comm nav
>>
>>612747397
Yeah I'm not going to spend my time in as a maintainer. I got a 90 on my ASVAB and listed some intel jobs, a med job and some shittty IT jobs. I heard going open general gives you more job offers that they keep away from MEPS. Is this true?
>>
>>612745034
Get a fucking a1 job. Stay away from mx jobs.
>>
Any linguists? I wanna be airborne crypto linguist
>>
>>612745034
So I want to become an astronaut. Best way is to become a pilot, right? I have a bachelor's, very good shape.
>>
>>612747747
Don't go open general unless you want a shit job.
>>
>>612747745
I'm ECM but I wish I could have went CommNav better on my resume
>>
>>612747747
>going open general

That means they make you a cook.
Don't sign Open General. If you want a medical job you need the ASVAB score to justify it and if you've got that your recruiter needs to give you a guarantee IN WRITING.
>>
>>612745034
yeah join a real branch
>>
>>612747747

also have 90s on my asvab and went in open electronics and got comm nav. never say never if you go in open anything
>>
>>612747953
True, if you want a job being a lazy nonner with bank hours.
>>
Do not go open general. I had a guy in my basic flight, with an ASVAB score of 93, get services because he went in open general.
>>
>>612747417
how many AFSCs did they fuck with? prior 1C1X1 here.

Also this >>612748287
>>
>>612749402
They fucked with all of them as far as I know.
This was in the mid 90's. I did 7 years and got out in 1999.
>>
>>612745034
Any USMC recruiters around? Got a question or two about re-enlisting.
>>
>>612749932
Dig, I'm coming up on two years out. Served for eight, fuck all that noise.
>>
>>612748119
>be me in basic
>meet buddy who's a got a linguist slot
>be me two years later
>find out friend washed out

Don't do it man it's a two year tech school with a super high was out. I don't think you qualify for retrain after that long either
>>
If I didnt get a job dropped yet can I talk to my recruiter and change the jobs I have on my sheet?
>>
>>612748119
Airborne crypto linguist washout here.
DLI is fucking hard and not worth all the babying. As another anon said, I didn't get to reclass. I know Farsi pretty well now but that's all I've got to show for it.

Pick another job.
>>
>>612751047
>i know farsi pretty well
not well enough though huh? lol
>>
>>612751047
What kind of babying do you mean
>>
im triying to score a 50 in the asvab to join NAVY but wasted my time in school :/
>>
>>612750355
I can't complain...I got what I wanted out of it (world travel).
Stationed in Germany, deployments to Italy (twice), Norway, Spain, Tunisia, Las Vegas, Florida and Turkey 6 times.
>>
I found out I was actually Open General after POS recruiter told me I was guaranteed Fire Fighter.

Didn't fight it, got a decent medical job.

I got lucky, don't go OG you could end up in the fucking chow hall.
>>
>>612751528
Lol nope! The listening portions of the tests are what got me. I was good enough at reading and speaking.
>>
General rundown:

Job choice: Don't go open general. They'll try to convince you to do it, but don't. In my opinion if you're looking for something to push your career, go anything tech or medical related. Cyber Surety, etc.

BMT Advice: First two weeks are the worst. They to break you down to weed people out. Be strategic. Go unseen, and only stand out if you're ready to take on roles like element leader or dorm chief. Go to church on Sundays whether you're religious or not -- it's the one time of the week you get to relax without the T.I.s around. Also, attention to detail is the name of the game. Help your buddies out, make sure you to keep your shit tight.

Exercise: Doing a lot of body weight workouts will help you tremendously. Don't waste your time with bench press and shit like that. Do sets of push-ups and flutter kicks like its your day job until you're sent to Lackland. You want endurance over pure strength because they'll drop you, A LOT. There's always that one guy who messes up all the time and your whole flight pays for it.
>>
2A373 now k after I turned wrenches on other fighters. Dont be a maintainer get a desk job. You sound like a pussy so it will good for you. Plus I don't want to have to supervise your pussy ass. Go comm or Intel if you can pass a ts check. Pt will be a part of your life from now on so deal with it
>>
>>612751914
it's for the best man, those dirtnigs don't have anything to say worth listening to.
>>
>>612751755
As long as you have at least a GED you should be fine.

They sell ASVAB study books right alongside the SAT books. Get one if you want to know what the test is like.
>>
>>612748119

Not a CO (cryptologic operator, same thing), but i work with a bunch of them. Seems like a pretty cushy job once you get past DLI which ive heard can be the most frustrating year of your life
>>
No, but you'll find lots of seamen.
>>
>>612752215
>church on sundays
this. i did this my second sunday in. just walked in, sat in the back, picked up a bible and slept
>>
>>612751652
Outside of class, there are still tons of rules. You're not truly free until after your first 180 days. Then you graduate the phase program. Curfew, bullshit mandatory formations that take away from study time. Mandatory fun events. And piss poor PT sessions you have to go to. After DLI, you go to Goodfellow in Texas, and I've heard nothing but bad things about it. You get through there and it's SERE school if you're aircrew. That would be fun though.
>>
>>612752409

Old as fuck Air Force Sergeant here. Here's my advice: Be dedicated. PT is a measure of dedication as it is mostly mind over matter. If you give a shit, you should be able to kill it. So that is your job from now until you get into basic training. Study whatever your recruiter gives you as well. Find a job that suits you and pursue entry into that career field. All jobs are important and each has its benefits and challenges. When you get to your first base, tell your boss you want to be successful. Then, be humble and listen to the advice your boss tells you. Continue to listen. Work your ass off on duty and put in the extra time to improve yourself all around. That means learning everything their is to know about your job. Is the next shift starting a job you need to learn? Keep your ass at work even if your boss doesn't make you. That's dedication. You will be pushed to get involved in the community and work on your education. Do those things and you'll be running the Air Force before too long.

navy CTN here

all you faggots saying join the air force if you want to get into crypto/ intel are retarded. Navy is where its at for anything tech related army- airforce is like 10 years behind us on everything.

1A8 here, so if your interested in doing 6 years but having many opportunities afterwords linguists is a pretty good gig. If you become a flyer its even better. Essentially you would be an E4 taking home like 1st or 2nd LT pay. The DLI isnt for everybody but if you can get through that your good, then comes goodfellow which is kinda lame as far as lack of independence but your in military tech school suck it up. If you are a flyer youll do some camping stuff in the woods, lots of fun, then your off to your base depending on your airframe.

I went to basic for a little less than month before I was sent home for fraud. (Lied about a medical condition that was not disqualifying).
I know there's a 2 year wait period before I could even try to enlist again (Correct?), but I was wondering if there'd be any chance for me to re-enlist at all since I left on fraud.
>>
Go security forces. You won't regret it. Fucking fun as hell. You get to see shit most other people wont. It's fucking awesome!!!!

like i said before i wasted the time in HS :/ didnt learn shit ... barely remember how to divide when i started to study for the asvab ... all the algebra shit was new for me... you scored that high cause u had a solid math base ... share some of that knowledge fags :D
>>
>>612761178
The district head was at the office the first time I came in, and had me take the practice ASVAB, because I mean, you know. He told me most people around here get a 30-55, so he's expecting me to get around a 60 maybe. I got a 96 on the practice test and 98 on the real test. Did the real one in like, 50 minutes.
A kid who was there today (My 7 check up before shipping) got a 13 on the practice. I laughed in the office with my recruiter. lol

You're an idiot for going quick ship

lol fagets that die for the rich people and they are even proud of it lmao
>>
>>612762366
no I don't know.
I've been in for 4 years and had to lie about broken bones and visits with a shrink to get through meps. I know guys who lied about drugs like acid and cocaine, got in, and then proceeded to do acid and cocaine.
It's all about keeping your mouth shut.
Did you have a panic attack in basic, or just a big mouth?
>>
>>612762345
Not all are potatoes. There are some, but you'll find that in every job in every branch of the military. You won't even be at the gates for your entire enlistment. I'm at 2 years and already doing law enforcement work. I was being sarcastic though. It is very very shitty at first. Checking those IDs is teh worst.
>>
>>612762941
youre whats wrong with the airforce
>>
>>612763216
how would they know if you have done cocaine or weed in the past 5 years?

IYAAYAS motherfucker
>>
>>612763795
they wouldn't unless you got caught (have a police record). also some jobs require clearances where they interview your friends. just put friends who aren't morons and your clearance won't be compromised.
>>
>>612764312
then how did they find out? I'm still baffled.
>>
>>612745034
Any maintenance job just so you won't get made fun of for being a fucking Nonner by the majority of other AFSC's
>>
>>612764445
Skittles are cancer, especially the red ones.
>>
>>612763106
Not the same kid but i made it through dli last may, so to answer your question there are a few variables.
1Are you a flyer?
2Were you a shitty airmen that got paperwork?
3Do we have jobs that can utilize your clearance?
4what manner did you fail out, lack of effort vs lack of ability.

If you answered yes to number 2 or got a lack of effort wash out chances are high you wont get a reclass to a new job n booted from the usaf.

If are a flyer and answered no to the other stuff and got a lack of effort they will most likely try and put you in an aircrew job like a 1A8X2 or other aircrew position like an ACE.

If your ground then you'll be used for your clearance and put most likely in a computer oriented field like cyber warrior blah blah.

that's fucking terrifying.
how do I into maintaining effort in my studies?
>>
Go ATC, I do it for the navy, sweet gig
>>
>>612763785
Haha, Im not an officer. Im just venting my fustration with what they do.
>>
>>612761857
>>612761952

I'll let this speak for itself. I've known many an 03 with 90+ ASVABS. Don't be mad because your girlfriend likes us more.
>>
>>612765382
Sorry if i was confusing, lack of ability wash outs are high. As long as your teachers see you trying your ok.

The lack of effort is a kid who sleeps in class, doesnt do the homework or doesnt participate in class or is disrespectful to the teachers.
>>
>>612745034
I was ADF - Rifleman. Do not join the forces, no matter what country.
>>
>>612766289
Yeah I'll give you that there are about 3 non-retarded marines... overall. All of the ones I've met are as dumb as rocks. I'll let this story speak for some of the stupidity they're known for; a marine I know killed the dog he was watching. Blamed it on the maintenance people who came to his house. Then went awol.
>>
ITT POGS TALK ABOUT BEING POGS
>>
>>612766289
An officer SHOULD have a high score, i mean since they have a degree and all
>>
>>612767526
What they should have are perfect scores, seeing as kids in high school do that all the time.
>>
>>612765382
As far as studying they will give all the free resources for your language. Depending on how well you do during the first 8 weeks you can guage wether you can balance outside activities like being a rope or going out for sports.

I would listen to bbc broadcast in the target language on my phone, watch movies dubbed in the target language and listen to the music.
Youll get alot of resources but its up to you to find what helps you best. The three components are listening, reading and speaking. So talking to the teachers as much as possible will go a long way in helping you pick the colloquial speech instead of the super formal stuff like some of what was said earlier in this thread.
