So when I first joined the Air Force I wanted to have a medical job (particularly aerospace medical servics). I went in as open general but got security forces instead. I just hit my 2 year of my 4 year mark and I’m wondering if there’s a way to go into the Army as a Combat Medic 68w. What would be the best steps. Thank you.

Stop it. Abort. Stay Air Force. Look I’m a medic and it may seem cool ( and sometimes is) but it’s really a good job. You stay a basic level emt, I mean the nation registry is a perk but it’s still a minimum wage job on the outside. If you choose to do it, I’d push hard to become a flight medic at a minimum for the paramedic cert. This is my opinion and doesn’t reflect the whole Army but as a whole it’s pretty toxic. The reason most branches are jealous of the Air Force is how much better it treats it’s soldiers and how much better you treat each other (on average.)
You are going to need to finish your contract with the Air Force and then try to join the Army as a prior service applicant. The downside to that is that the Army may not be accepting any prior service at that and the Air Force may not either. Have you considered trying to change your MOS when your reenlistment window opens?
