A few things from someone who's leaving for basic training for the AF tomorrow morning. Make sure you get all your shit in writing. What ever anyone tells you as far as bonuses, guaranteed jobs, all that shit needs to be written down. They won't take word of mouth or what have you. The ASVAB isn't that hard. I got near 80. Some of the dudes at MEPS though got shit in the 30s which, not to knock anyone, you have to be damn near fucking retarded to score that low. The Air Force has the highest ASVAB score req. as well. You can try to get that photo job but I honestly doubt it will happen. The AFSCs like that are far and few between to show up on job drops. And even though it sounds like you want to get on with this pretty quickly, make sure you get a guaranteed job. It'll take longer but if you don't you're going in on an open contract and sure they'll give you a list of jobs that are available, but it's a better feeling to go with a job picked. I'm going in open mechanical but luckily I scored high enough that near anything in that field is open. Some of the cooler jobs, especially cause it sounds like you wanted to travel, are air crew jobs. I was originally going to try to land a spot as a load master (handles cargo/personnel on transport planes like the c-5, c-17, and c-130) but I failed my depth perception test like a lot of people so a lot of air crew jobs are off the table. I'm actually kind of glad that happened though because I'm going to try now to get a job with a decent amount of down/off time because I want to get into the ROTC/SOAR program and eventually become an officer and/or pilot. But in any case, think this stuff through. Make sure you don't get rushed by your recruiter and if you get a shitty one, don't let him force stuff upon you. Good luck either way man.
PS to Mind;(I probably won't read your response if you do) I might put down Nellis on my dream sheet so if I end up there, you're going to have to show me around. :p I think I'm also going to list Beale, Travis, Luke for my CONUS bases. And possibly Aviano, Ramstein, and RAF Lakenhearth for my OCONUS bases. If I remember I'll check this thread when I'm done with basic on 20 March. Ha.
And finally before I forget, anyone considering the Air Force should use these forums as a guide/tool. Full of enlisted guys from a range of fields and years upon years of experience as well as people like your self. Here's a link: www.afforums.com/
