Our son has taken the ASVABS (sp?) and attended MEPS but doesn't have a contract, has not taken The Oath. He and his recruiter agree that finishing an A.S. degree in community college this spring is the first priority. He hopes to join sometime after the semester ends in May '09. Does this mean he's in the delayed entry program? He wants to be a firefighter and wants to get that mission in the AF. Anybody know about his chances? Does AF take a lot of firefighters each year? We presume that in the course of four years, he'll be stationed sometime overseas — probably Afghanistan or Iraq. Is that a good assumption?
