Hey guys, I know I haven't been on here in a minute but I wanted to know if any of you ladies are in the Military, or the Air Force branch more specifically. I would like to know your pros and cons and if it has lead you to a stable life financially and career wise. Im young and I've been stressing today, of what I want to do with my life. I dont want to be in debt for college, and I dont want to struggle in life, so please feel to share your experiences or opinions.

If you do join the military make sure it's Air Force, better quality of life, better suited to get you for the world when you get out.

That's what both my uncle's in law tole me back in the day.  They also said that it was a better choice for women in general.  More sh*t goes on against women in Navy and Army in their opinion. One was Navy the other was Air Force.

Yes, it is and better for women and the treatment and advance for women as well. If this was my daughter or female relative and they were thinking about this career path than I would all by means direct them to this route.

I'm in the air force.
If you WANT to join the military the af is the best branch.

What is yor ultimate goal in life? Are you just joining for a guaranteed income?

I'm in the Air Force and if I could do things over, I would have gone to college and been an officer.

Pros:
-Pretty stable (we stilll got paid even with the whole gov't shutdown)
-Free (ish) healthcare. I only say free-ish if you have a family; you would still have to pay dental for them, but that's about it.
-Travel
-Can be like an average 9 to 5 office job depending on what your job is
-More laid back than the other branches
-Experience. Depending on your job, the military will pay for you to get certain certs (ex: with my job I needed Network+ and Security+ so I got those for free). If and when you get out, you'll have that leg up above fresh out of college people.

Cons:
-Politics...there's a bunch of ass kissing that goes on, and if someone doesn't like you; you can get screwed out of awards/decorations/anything positive.
-Depending on what job you get, you could work with a bunch of weirdos. I basically do comm. stuff (routers, switches, computer networking type stuff) and I deal with a bunch of guys that talk about video games and Wow and MTG.
-Deployments. I don't like the deployed environment...you make money, but I hate it.
-Lack of freedom...you can't do certain things with your hair, if you wear a purse while in uniform it has to meet certain regs, gym bag regulations, nitpicking over little things that normal people wouldn't think about.
-The pomp and circumstance that comes when a DV (distinguished visitor) comes to your base or squadron. All of our day is spent making our squadron look pretty (aka like we don't work for a living) for the off chance that this person and their entourage will visit (more than likely, they won't.)


And with any branch, the higher in rank you get the more responsibility you get. That can mean having multiple troops to be responsible for...tbh I hate it.

I've been thinking about getting out for a while now; I'll just wait and see.
