    Two recruiting stations in the area have told him they're full and won't give him the time of day. The third one is about 30 miles away that he's going to try next week.

    Do I have to personally go home and accompany him to the stations and call bullshit in front of these guys faces? :hsugh:

    My career field is one of the few that is dramatically still undermanned. We are still kicking out anyone who has negative paperwork.:wavey:

    Yeah, I was wondering why the air force came up with a (gay) new recruiting campaign when they don't need ANYONE.

    air force will only commission about 500 officers through OTS this year, in 2001 they commissioned something like 2000.

    When I went to talk to the AF they tried to pull the same shit with me until I told them my ASVAB and DLAB scores. Then they sucked me off. I still joined the Army though :o
