    I'm 24 and seriously thinking about joining the military. What are your career goals? are you active duty?

    Active, still uncertain on my goals. Went mechanic because that's what my parents wanted me to do, but I was thinking Security Forces, even though it sucks since I was interested in becoming a Forest Ranger.

    Thats a shitty way to go in. Enjoy what you are doing, or it'll be the worst 4-6 years of your life.

    You said basic training and then you said Air Force, now I'm confused.

    Prepare for lots of aircraft mx.

    Or if you're lucky, maybe backshop or even vehicles.

    If you're unlucky you'll get SF. Good guys, worked with them, but damn sitting at a guard shack all day checking vehicle IDs sucks.

    They put me in a JOG program for admin and support. During boot I get to pick a wish list between SK, YN, PS, and AZ. SK will most likely be my first choice, then YN, AZ, PS. Any opinions would be great. Going in as E-3 as well.

    mx = maintenance.

    I might have spelled that wrong.


    Backshop = aircraft mx, but in a nice cool hangar, or even just working on individual LRUs (parts) at a workbench.

    Vehicles = vehicle mx.
