The reason the air force spends all their time on "shore duty" is because congress won't authorize the shipboard variant required:

Shore Duty??? We spend most of the time on our bases. Your bases float ours don't

Shipboard variant??? If we went to that trouble we wouldn't be the Air Force now would we....We would be the Navy.



We do things the easy way.
We use these....



Plus these.....



To do this.....



From here.....

I'd love to have you on our team. Not that any of the other branches are on a different team or anything. We all fight the same fight. I'm just partial to the USAF way of life.

If you want to have an opportunity to try it, do it while you're young. I'm not advocating that you join up and/or quit school. But don't let anyone tell you that you ain't medically qualified but the military.

There is a lot of work and cost to being in the military. There are also people, places and things that you'll never experience elsewhere.

I guess, my point is: unless the MEPS station/physical says you aren't medically qualified to go in, you may be. If you like what and where you are now, follow your path.

distortedtj Well most likely yes you would be a desk jockey.

Finish your schooling. That is a great achievment, especially if your going for something you enjoy.

yjwrangler well i had a major surgery and my stomach down is all messed up! my dad said they probably wouldn't take me and my budy who just enlisted kinda said the same thing. he said i would be stuck behind a desk!!! i really didn't have the guts when i was graduating high school to do it, now i am in college...

Asma? (sp*) If so you CAN still join. But you can only deploy to places with permaint medical buildings.

Well, now that's not always true. Of course, I don't know anything about that.

Just talk to a recruiter. I'm sure they can make it happen.

yjwrangler well congrats on the child, and be safe on the deployment. but i still think it is awesome what you guys get to do and everything. i have a friend in iraq right now. SPC lance gallimore (does that sound right). of course i am a single young guy with no kids. so maybe it just sounds more appealing to me

Coyote_94YJ Ask distortedtj about luck. He just had a kid a few weeks ago and in a few months he is going to have to leave on deployment for a year.

Friends vs Military Friends

I've read this before somewhere but I got it in an email and though I would share because its funny and probably 99% true. It's old and I'm sure everyone's seen it before but here it is anyway.


FRIENDS: Never ask for food
MILITARY FRIENDS: Are the reason you have no food.

FRIENDS: Call your parents Mr. and Mrs.
MILITARY FRIENDS: Call your parents mom and dad.

FRIENDS: Bail you out of jail and tell you what you did was wrong.
MILITARY FRIENDS: Would be sitting next to you saying, Damn...we f***ed up...but that sh*t was fun!"

FRIENDS: Have never seen you cry.
MILITARY FRIENDS: Cry with you.

FRIENDS: Borrow your stuff for a few days then give it back.
MILITARY FRIENDS: Keep your stuff so long they forget it's yours.

FRIENDS: know a few things about you.
MILITARY FRIENDS: Could write a book with direct quotes from you.

FRIENDS: Will leave you behind if that's what the crowd is doing.
MILITARY FRIENDS: Will kick the whole crowds ass that left you.

FRIENDS: Would knock on your door.
MILITARY FRIENDS: Walk right in and say, "I'm home!"

FRIENDS: Are for a while.
MILITARY FRIENDS: Are for life.

FRIENDS: Will take your drink away when they think you've had enough.
MILITARY FRIENDS: Will look at you stumbling all over the place and say, "B*tch, you better drink the rest of that, you know we don't waste.. That's alcohol abuse!!!"

FRIENDS: Will talk sh*t to the person who talks sh*t about you.
MILITARY FRIENDS: Will knock them the f**k out!!
