I served with a guy at Fort Rucker in the mid-1980s who had spent a number of years in the Air Force. At the time I knew him he was a CW4 (and I cannot remember his name anymore dangit) which meant he had spent quite some time in the Army to get to where he was then. He was not an Aviator, either, and so he was a long way from being considered in the "high school to flight school" category. When I asked him why he switched to the Army after spending a number of years in the Air Force, his reply was really quite poignant and left me at a loss for words. His reply was, "Because I got fed up with being an E-6(P) in the Air Force."
I have met many Warrant Officers that started out in the Air Force. Everything they need to know is easily found at the Warrant Officer Recruiting website. Finding a Warrant to have a face to face conversation about life as a Warrant is recommended, but if your troops are not near an Army base, there are plenty of us here that would do it by phone.
