I've been considering applying for the US Air Force and I was wondering if anyone here has been in the military before or knows someone who has experienced it. Is now a good time to go, with Obama being president? Are you giving up a lot by going and is what you gain worth it? I've checked the website, which is basically them selling themselves, so I thought to ask people not on the website. I'm planning on talking to a recruiter soon, so what should I ask? Any input would be helpful. Thanks!
