    I've been trying to join the airforce for a couple of months now but it seems like my Air Force recruiter is taking forever to get anything done. I was supposed to go to MEPS last week but at the last minute he told me I wasn't far enough UNDER the maxium weight for my height. I'm 5'9" and the max weight is 186 I just got weighed by him at 180 and he says I need to lose another 5 (I just got done losing 25) and maybe I can go to MEPS next week. Do they not measure your body fat anymore? Any ideas? comments? suggestions? encouragements?

    I might just call some other recruiters and ask if my weight would be a problem

    Unlike the Army or the Marines....The AF does not need recruits nearly as bad.
    So I imagine the standards are much higher.

    I currently weigh 186 and I'm 5'8", however I'm at 12% body fat. When I left for AIT (tech school) for the Army, I weighed in at 180, max for my height is 178 I believe. They taped me :o

    Does anyone know what bodyfat is acceptable? I got it checked at a gym a few weeks ago and it was 13% and I've lost some more punds since then
