    Currently an E-3 in the AF, Com ops.

    I've been trying to get out of computers since i first got in, was shot down in basic for combat control, and shot down when i tried to apply for aerial gunner, which is what i REALLY want to do.

    Called the Army to ask about blue to green program and becoming an aerial gunner, but they don't have a set MOS for that specific job and i still wouldn't be able to do it with my color vision anyways.

    So, to my question. What special forces or combat related airborne jobs can i go in to in the Air force, being partially color blind?

    What would my options be in the other branches?

    I don't want to be infantry, and would MUCH prefer an air borne job.

    Thank you.

    are you red green, the army would dq you for airborne as well as infantry, Marine Corps you qualify for some of the 03 series (infantry) maybe try doing support and see if you can get attached to a combat arms unit like a MP unit, right now they got guys doing infantry stuff straight out of AIT who are support MOS's anyway

    edit-why don't you want to do infantry thats basically the epitemy of special forces

    yes, red-green colorblind.

    Honestly i want to do airborne or special forces just because that's what i like to do.

    simply put: flying and sneaking around.

    when i say special forces i mean stuff like HALO jumps, infiltration, that sorta of stuff.

    DaRkPhAnToM could probably give you more details, but I would imagine that SF would be like infantry on steroids. It's going to be extremely physical, with endurance being high on the list of things you will need.
