Yup. I'm going to be studying all weekend too, just to get ahead in class. I just resent it being mandatory and on post.

Pratt&Whitney FTL
GE FTW!!!



Working on Heavies isnt bad at all(ie KC-135R, C-5, C-17, and C-17's). I perfer heavies much more. Way easier to work on than the F-15, but nowhere near the F-22. F-22 is crazy easy to work on.

At Robins AFB, the dorms weren't full and you were put on a waiting list to move off base, usually at your 3 year mark. Same here at Nellis AFB. At Korea, you can be Staff/Tech Sgt and still be in the dorms.

B-52 FTL. Too many TF-33's to worry about... and you guys in barksdale have a ton of them.
Don't throw any frogs in there.

No frogs but we do have Lizards galore.. I've seen them get sucked down the exhuast tube before. That **** is hilarious.

Arabic..really. My younger sister is in the Navy and I believe is learning arabic too in Monterey. Part of her Tech School.

Cool, campus is damn small so chances are we've seen each other around.

I wish I did too, it sure would make class easier. It moves at a very fast pace. We've just learned the alphabet and numbers, and we can already form very simple sentences and recognize select words from arabic TV channels.

Just got home from taking my ASVAB today. My "unverified" score was 92. The recruiter says I will have the official score by next Tuesday, but that the score I got tonight was the MINIMUM score and it can only go up from that. What kind of position does this put me in for jobs in the air force?

Just put intellegence operations (1N0X1)as your number one choice (they really need intel people right now, and its what my wife is going to tech school for in january.) They make tons of money on the civilian side. And you will get a TS clearence.

TS = Money with many companies. Usually about 20K more a year with a TS over a Secret.

I'm Security Forces in the Air force, and going to be a Combat Arms Training Instructor in January. Can't wait to hit the riverwalk (river crawl) in san antonio again.
