    Well just spoke to an Air Force recruiter and they lead me to the inscruction AFRSI 36-2001. Aparently I am able to switch and she said I should be able to keep my rank as long as I went Security Forces, because it is a similar MOS. I see your high year tenure is 10 years now for Senior Airmen. How hard is it to advance in the Air Force? I am an E-4 now and have been in the Navy 1 year and 6 months. What is the probability of me making E-6 by 10 years if I come into the Air Force?

    all very good responses. but as a captain in the Air Force right now. i would say with a B.S. you can become and will become an officer. it will take you more then likley separating from the Navy first tho. bottom line you need a good recruiter and not a forum to help you. because the Air Force does offer alot. one is a higher standard of living. we are civilized after all.

    I think you're right. We had class right next to them in the same building. It was only for people in the Security school so they couldn't have been in bootcamp. I loved that base bro. Warhawk was a great gym....

The omlets were off the hook in the morning, along with all the other breakfast food. You could actually do ok bodybuilding wise with the food there if you weren't recieving food allowance.

And we didn't eat in restaraunts. I will say that our chow halls are a lot better than the Army's because I was stationed in Iraq with the Army and had to eat at their DFAC.

    Bro I was just there February. They have weekends off. Maybe not allowed to rome San Antonio but they were walking free on the base. In Great Lakes, you are lucky to go to Church on SUndays. Atleast in my division... Not hating... The Air Force is where I should have gone.

    I don't know if you can switch, but I was security forces in the Air Force and loved it. Did riot control at an EPW camp in Iraq and loved it too!

    Lots of good chances to go Blue to Green and join the Army machine as an officer though.

    USAF is shedding enlisted, and from what Ive seen its a lot tougher to go from E to O there than in the Navy.
