    Hi,
    I know that after you graduate from KP that you can branch into any military branch however I am wondering the process. While you are attending kp can u already be training for a particular military branch or job? and I am also wondering if kp has any slots to send people to air force combat rescue officer training.
    Thanks

    If you really want to be an air force combat rescue officer I suggest that you look at AFA or AFROTC. Your training and education at the Kings Point is all towards becoming a Merchant Marine Officer and as such you can be very dissappointed should you not do or get what you would like to do as a career.

    I agree with Tanker, what is your career goal? AF CRO? If so, USMMA might not be a strong fit for you.

    OBTW AF CRO is considered a very competitive field.
