Loc: Auburn, Al.
I've been recently considering joining the Air Force. I will be able to do sign up to do their special forces program.

http://www.military.com/NewContent/0,13190,Smith_111303,00.html (copy and paste in browser)

I can do minimums for the push ups, sit ups, and pull ups.

I'm not in the best cardio shape at the moment, so I'm not sure about the running portion.

I use to be on a swim team, I've also done life guarding/swimming instruction.

I'm 19, 5'9 and weigh 145-150 pounds.


I will have to sign a 4 year contract, the first two years will pretty much just be training, then the next two they get their moneys worth out of me.

I understand that I will also be able to do some college while in the Air Force. I currently have 35 credit hours. I want to do MMA when I get out, assuming I'm healthy. If not I will just go back to college and work from their.

I'm considering either Para rescue or Combat Controller.

Any advice would be appreciated.

www.Specialtactics.com (PJs and CCT live here).

BTW, when you are in training to be a PJ or CCT and it is time to take the tests (something you do periodically) it will be after a lot of physical training and you will be sore, tired, and/or inured. You need to be able to do above the minimums (when you are not sore, tired, and/or injured).

www.romad.com (forward air controllers live here) they are USAF but live, eat, train, fight w/mainly the ARMY. They go to all the cool guy schools and some deploy with ARMY Special Forces also.

There is also a specialty called combat weather for the USAF that is considered special ops. I don't know the site.


Go to the websites read a lot and then ask questions they are good people.

Good luck in your endeavors

Hope this helps,
Kel

Go for it. I'm retired Army. My stepdaughter's fiance just graduated basic training. It sounds like you like to be active and do challenging things...sign and get a bonus...take whatever they offer and sign up for everything that comes along. Before you know it you will have done twenty years and it beats civilian life. Good luck!
