I am a wife and a mother and I am currently considering joining the AF. I have spoken with a recruiter and found that I am eligible and can start the process as soon or as late as I want to now. It has been a dream of mine to be in the AF since I was a young girl and saw my dad serving in the military. It is just a very honorable career, in my point of view. I am here to get more advice and kinda more encouragement and information on BMT, tech school, and life in the AF period (stuff the recruiter forgets to tell you, LOL). Thanks in advance for all the help!!!!
Welcome! It is admirable that you want to enter the Air Force. I have not been in the military but my husband is a veteran and we have two sons in the military. This site is a great place to get information and support. Glad you're here!
Satomi, “Welcome to the Blue”. I am glad that you have joined us. I started Air Force Dads to help support and encourage parents and family members, girlfriends and boyfriends, of young men and woman who have or are going to join the Air Force. Please feel free to look around the site and get involved with the groups and discussions that are going on. Maybe start one of your own. I have two sons and both of them are in the military. My oldest joined the Navy and is stationed on the USS Abraham Lincoln CVN 72. My youngest joined the Air Force 5 years ago, and is stationed at Seymour Johnson AFB N.C. Thank you for your desire to service this great country from an old Vietnam Vet.
Satomi, we are here to do what we can to help you and your family during this time. No question is out of bounds. You may want to start be reading some of what Stephanie has written, she has just finished Basic and is in Tech school. She is busy studying but if she has a moment or two I think she can be of some help. All of us here at Air Force Dads want to be there for you. I am so glad that that you have come here and joined us. I will write more later.
Wow! Just considering joining at this stage in your life makes you my hero! My son will be leaving for BMT later this summer/early fall and I am so excited for him and very scared. How does you family feel about your idea?
Well my family is pretty supportive for the most part. My mom is really scared and kind of upset that I am even thinking of joining right now (and since I am a mom I do understand her fears I just wish she understood why I feel I want and need to do this right now). Overall, my family is supportive though. Thanks for stopping by and leaving some encouragement!
