For about a year now I have been thinking that after highschool, I would like to take a break from everything, figure out what's going on in my life, and then join the Air Force when I'm 21. My grandfather was in the Air Force around the time he was 21, and became a senior airman before he retired and had a family. I want to follow in his footsteps, and make my family proud. I do get a little nervous when I think about joining (mostly because of Basic Military Training), but I think that in the end, it will all have been worth it. Not to mention, it will all be one hell of a story to tell my kids one day (assuming I have kids), and hopefully I can be a positive role model in their lives.

That's awesome. You plan on Enlisting right? Any idea of what you want to do in the Air Force?

Yea, definitely, I do plan on enlisting. I was thinking of becoming a Security Forces specialist, or Pavements and Construction Equipment personnel.

That's dope :D MP and construction. Good choices. 4 year enlistment? I have a friend that enlisted for 8 years in the marines.

I don't know just yet. I've heard that enlisting for 6 years can be good for the sake of experience, but I'm thinking I'll enlist for 4 years, and if it turns out to be something that I enjoy, then I'd probably re-enlist.

I think that's an awesome idea. My gf's ex is joining the AF in June. Good riddance to him.
