Google search will tell you, recruiters are not often up on medical stuff.

It's a dislocated. He told me that he doesn't know, so I better get it tightened before I go in.

you have to remember, some of these fools lied about existing medical conditions because they could get away with it. so dont just take everyones word that has a similar or same and doesnt explain indepth HOW they got passed.

possibly, if hes giving you the run around. but sometimes this is how they are if theyre busy, or you arent considered an alpha. hes gonna process alphas faster and be there for anything.

"I wanna do combat as well"

If your saying you want to go to combat, wait until your there and you will reget saying it. No branch of job will keep you out of war, even war needs cooks, and mechanics.

Best of luck.

So I am at 196/198 lbs right now, I think recruiters will take me seriously. I'm gonna go tomorrow to USAF, see what they say. I changed my mind back to AF because I thought if I would really enjoy army or not, AF seems like the way to go.

I kinda figured out what I'm gonna say, wish me luck. If there is a decent job available, I will take it on the spot. I really hope I can get it, thank you for your help.

Good choice. I spent 24 years in the Air Force and it was the best decision I ever made.

Let me tell you about this AF man and from what I have seen being on Joint Bases with them

The finer women the military has to offer , better living areas , better DFACs , more flexibility on how/when to wear uniforms , easy PT oh and lets not forget the Cafes in your school buildings

You might want to get on the ball about getting into the AF

It's been gone for two weeks now...


I go in this morning and the office is closed, even though it's supposed to be opened today.

Earlier this week I couldn't go in because of work. This sucks.

If you have the time, which ever is closer..... If I remember right from when I was in HS the recruiters were not always in the office.... sometimes would take guys out to lunch etc.... try and get one on the phone first, before you drive.... And make them buy you lunch and some beers.....get whatever you can out of the guys.....

Heh... I think that is the office I went to back in 87. Nope I guess they moved. But the SJ one on SCB was where I joined... Then MEPS in Oakland.

I'm surprised your recruiter didn't give you his cell phone... Having able body people ready to sign I would think is a good thing.

Hopefully you go in guaranteed job and try to get to Sheppard AFB for tech school. That is where the medical squadron tech school is, and even if your armament or something else...the medical area is where you want to hang out. I miss the medical squadrons hospitality.
