Why did you join the Air Force? My father served in the Air Force before I was born and I had always thought it was so fascinating. When I was in college, I needed to take a student loan out to finish my degree. One day I decided that I should join because I didn’t want to wait until it was too late and regret not even trying. Joining the Air Force has helped me finish my degree without any more student loans and I have met so many amazing people thus far. The Air Force has also given me the opportunity to travel the world.
