I've been enlisted in the Army for 5 years and my contract will be ending soon. I want to pursue a degree in Business Administration and apply for AFROTC.

What is the Air Force like compared to the Army and what are the people like? Is it worth it to change and learn how a whole new branch works?

Can you share what made you switch and if you regret your decision?

Why would you want to waste your talents after 5 years. The Army needs men to make up the "backbone of the NCO Corps"

Talk with AFROTC cadre at your future school. They will have info to explain cultural difference.

I've served in the Marines USMCR, Army , ARNG and Air Force Reserve.. Air Force was more relaxed and less formal. I jumped back and forth many times mostly Reserve and Guard... changing is easy.. I did not obtain a promotion though as I was mentally ill and suffered many head injuries.. USMC and Army crippled me. I had 16 good years... 1974 to 2004.. broken time.. date of rank 1980..I held a 7 level in the Air Force..AFSC Air Cargo...

CPL Gary Pifer I was told that if you claim any VA disability after getting out of the Army then you are disqualified to join the Air Force even if it’s 0%. Is that true?
