    I understand that at West Point cadets are able to go to Air Assault school and other activities during the summer. My questions are what are the Air Force equivalent schools and what are the Air Force special forces and what do they do?

    AF special operations, for officers, are generally Special Tactics Officers or Combat Rescue Officers. They coordinate airstrikes and air operations from the ground, and lead PJs. There's more to it than that, but that's the very basics.

    There is also combat weather, but I don't know a whole lot about them.
