    Hi, I'm thinking about enlisting (have my 2nd meeting with the AF recruiter this week) but I'm just not quite sure if it's the right fit for me. Do most people enjoy the military life? Is there a certain personality type that does much better or much worse? What about introverted vs. extroverted?

    I just want to make sure I'm making a wise choice

    If you own a wallet that says "Bad Mother Fucker", then the military is def for you.

    If you don't like taking orders or feel like your way is the best way, the military isn't for you.

    You're in the AF, I'm sure the government has invested more than plenty of money to make you feel at home

    It's not a bad gig man. If you're worried about being introverted, boot camp fixes that shit quick.

    no shit, the last three weekends have been 4 day weekends, or 96's how we call them in the Corps. Actually they end up being more like 5 day weekends. We were supposed to get off at noon on Friday, we left like at 0900, don't have to be in till Wednesday morning.

    don't worry though, you'll make up for all of those four days when you're deployed.

    The post commander in Ft. Hood made all those rules about no working on the weekends, everyone home by 1600 and shorter days on Wednesday (Sergeant's time) for family time. I wonder if it will catch on at the other installations?

    all i can say is, be able to take constuctive critisizm, be willing to take orders, and dont get all but hurt if you have to deploy, even though its the airforce, its still the military.

    Other then that, enjoy it. I love it. I have friends all over the world now, the pay is actually pretty good, and your pretty much guaranteed career progression as long as your not a dumb shit and get popped for drugs or multiple dui's
