    hey whats up... i've been gone for along time but i'm currently at keesler for tech school i'm a Computer Systems Operator, it really doesn't seem like it'll be that bad of a job, but i really can't stand this shit, maybe im just homesick... but i'm getting stationed at Pope in fayetteville NC so that shouldn't be too bad at all really, i'll be there in about a month.. i'm thinking to ditch the hatch and just sell out and get an si because this doesn't really pay enough to dump assloads of money into a car... well it's 4 am and i'm babbling well peace.

    I'm in the AF, I sew on SSGT in July. Don't worry the money situation gets better, you just have to pay your dues. Besides, I'm sure you got a good enlistment bonus right?

    yea military pay gets better when you move up in rank, the only problem is the air force sucks for makin rank. i joined the navy a lil over a year ago, came in as E3, 6 months later made E4, and im takin the test for E5 in september. i think the military is kinda like unprotected sex, sure it feels good when your in, but when all is said and done, youre sorry you came.

    i'm currently an e1, but i go to e2 in a month, then i'll take a year to hit e3, i'm sure that's what i'll leave with... i didn't get a signing bonus, the only good thing is the 60 grand re enlistment bonus, if i go for another 4 years, but i don't see that happening.. i can't really complain though i'm getting a free stay in north carolina and i've always wanted to live there, so whatever i guess.

    if nothing else you should put on E4 at 36mo, you might even have a chance to test before you cycle out. I'm sewing on E-5 at 3.5 yrs (AF), and while I don't intend to stay in, I've enjoyed it while I've been around. Your not in the AF yet, your in tech school. You'll understand better in a year, untill then just suck it up...

    i would never do rotc in high school but in college it is a different story they are paying for your school they pay you X amount and you have a for sure job when you get out into the job market and you are getting on the job training

    it gets much better, yourpay goes up, your life becomes more sain. You will move out of the dorms, eventually. And your pay will go up again. You suddenly become a viable target for single girls, military guy=honest guy+pay+benifets+clean, The longer your in the better it gets. Until you get old anyway, but nothing is fun then...

    :lol:
