    I’m only a freshman and I am going to apply for AFA when I am old enough and if I don’t get in I will do AFROTC, but this isn’t about that. I was wondering how difficult it is for people to find a wife/husband while serving in the Air Force?

    I’m just curious, its not like it will prevent me from joining or anything.
    Thanks!

    Not hard....keeping them is another story (however with a little work, and some tender love and care, anything is possible). :biggrin:

    I see I'm a little late on this, and this doesn't answer what you asked, but, if you really want into the AFA, if you don't make it the first time around you could go to the prep school. (I think it is offered or something?)

    You are WAY too young to worry about that! You should be thinking about how easy it is to see the world, exercise incredible levels of responsibility at a young age, and enjoy the privilege of leading America's airmen.

    Marriage happens or it doesn't. Not something to worry about.

    You might want to reconsider academies. Just remember, the hottest girl in the bar always goes after the Naval Aviator.

    Then after about 6 minutes, dusts him off and saddles up to the AF flyer for an adult level of conversation. :biggrin:

    A couple of misconceptions here guys.

    First off, we're just not only talking CONUS with which the AF would only be aware. There are some great bars all over the world with some very hot women which you guys will rarely. if ever, see.

    Secondly, since Naval Aviators are probably seeking more than adult conversation, you are probably confused like normal and somehow misconstruing who rejected whom. The six minutes I don't understand though. It only takes a NA about a minute to size things up. The other five must be you guys untying your tongues and working up the nerve to say 'hi'.

    Meanwhile, while the two pretty-boys were polishing your egos and trying to remember the words to a certain Righteous Brothers tune, an Army aviator strode in, resplendent in a greasy set of flight gear, downed a boilermaker, and grabbed the nice young lady by the hand and whisked her out to his truck so they could ride into the sunset together. He also sideswiped your Volvos on the way out of the parking lot.

    Dominoes, suckers. :biggrin:

    LOL. You are correct there. I was crawling around on an aircraft the other day with my son when I got a small dab of grease on my finger. Not having anything, I wiped it off on the leg of his flight suit. One would have thought that I dumped a gallon of grease on his dress whites while he was on his way to a command inspection.

    I understand why the Army isnt downsizing now... The difficulty in finding an Army aviator that 1 Likes Girls and 2 Can actually find a bar during night IMC conditions must be extremely difficult

    scout,
    Speaking of 'snaking' girls, one of the best Army Navy spirit videos I have ever seen was back in your day when the Mid placed his Mattel action figure on his nightstand before going to sleep. In the middle of the night, the figure wakes up, rapels down the nightstand, and then down the side of Bancroft Hall transforming into a real individual as he does so. He does the closed door leap into the drivers seat, without doing bodily harm, of his bright red convertible, Mitsubichi 3000gt I think and roars off to Woopvile and rescues the damsel in distress. It was a spoof on some commercial, I think. But really very good. I have never been able to find it again.
