    I'm thinking of joining the Air Force and one of my friends is telling me I can be an officer because I have a degree. It's an associates in Electronics... Is this enough? I couldn't find anything online besides age and vision requirements. I always thought you had to have a 4 year degree but I guess I may be wrong.

    I'm also a little color blind. I feel like I can see fine and see colors pretty well but I get mixed up with red/orange or blue/purple sometimes. I fail the shit out of the Ishihara test though:wtc: Does this make a big difference in what jobs I could do? I guess they could determine that. Here is a link to the test. The only one I can see is the first one, the 25. I can make out the 56 once I know it's there. I can't even see the last one that I'm supposed to be able to see...

    That's what I always though... I may go talk to a recruiter and see what I can do.

    Your school has to verify that it is possible.
