Yea, now I just need to get that letter. Lol. Mental Health and my PCP are playing ping pong with me about who should write the letter for me.

SN Kevin Neff As an AF recruiter for 15 years and with three years at the MEPS, as an Operations Superintendent in charge of four MEPS, I can tell you that getting in the AF as PS is a VERY difficult task if you're not patient. The AF don't run PS jobs but once a year in most cases and the jobs are hard-to-fill jobs that they need. If your PS job isn't one, it will be next to impossible unless they allow you to retrain and you're willing to. Also, don't confuse prior service with previous service or NDT.

SN Kevin Neff - Sorry, Sunday's are very busy for me. NPS Direct Technical Training (NDT), if active, this program applies to an applicant for enlistment in the RegAF who has successfully completed BMT with any branch of service, is going to attend an Air Force technical training course, has less than 24 months of TAFMS, has been separated for less than 6 years, and is otherwise qualified for the NPS program.

Darn....the only things disqualify me from that is the length I've been out and how long I was in. It'll be 7 years on 9/22 and I was in for 30 months. I appreciate the info, sir.

I have a question. I have a re-enlistment code of RE-1A. I was admin so I know I can re-enlist with that code, but I was also diagnosed as having migraines when I was in and couldn't be given a complete medical review before discharge because I was pregnant. I also receive disability from the VA for it now. I was told that no branch of service will take me because migraines are considered a neurological condition. My rating isn't high enough to say that I am unfit to continue service and I wasn't put on a MED-board. What do I need to do to get back in?

SN Kevin Neff - You need to get a clean bill of health from your doctor and get with your AF recruiter for a medical pre-screening. If the pre-screen goes well you can process however; you may need a consultation that the Chief Medical Officer (CMO) will take into account. If he/she likes what they see, then they would allow your enlistment to continue however; if they don't they will disqualify you from further prosessing. They may see enough to send it off to the AF Surgeon General's Office (SGO) however; if they don't, you can request that they AF Liaison send it to the SGO for approval.

Furthermore, the AF normally have season that they open to PS, PSSS and NDT, find out from the recruiter if this program is open. If it's not, still try to get everything can get completed to be ready for that opening. AF also won't take admin personnel since it isn't a needed career field unless you're looking to retrain into something hard to fill, i.e. police, EOD, mechanics, PJ/CCT, etc... which your aptitude score must be high.

I would think pretty good if you have overcome the RE-3G condition and the AF is willing to request a waiver. You will not know until you seek out an AF recruiter.

Good luck!

I know I have. I was young and dumb and made an ignorant decision. I've matured since then and feel like it's the best time for me.
