• Is it normal for army leave to be cancelled or is my boyfriend in trouble?

    My boyfriend was due home on leave this weekend but he called me to say his leave had been cancelled but he didn't say why. He is in the Army a year and this hasn't happened before. My brother says he is probably being punished for something and his leave was cancelled - is that more likely?

    Good afternoon guys! So ive encountered a problem. I joined the National Guard on my 17th birthday, about 4 and a half years ago. I have gladly recieved a Governors Twenty tab and love to shoot. I run a 13:00 2 mile and nearly max out my pushups. Im a little over weight but the COs are pretty relaxed. I cant seem to pass my situps. I can push my self on a run but not situps. Because of this i have failed 3 times. I know im pathetic because i cant pass situps. I am 2 semesters away from graduating with a bachelors degree and fear an APFT discharge will ruin my future of becoming a federal law enforcement officer. How bad will this be? Any info is great info!! Thanks guys...

  • Air Force and ASVAB score?

    Best answer: You can re-take that through your recruiter when the time comes. It's not a binding score. The one you take at the MEPS is and you want the very best score you can possibly get. That not only determines your eligibility to enlist, it determines your job. If you hate your job you'll hate the military. So... show more
    Best answer: You can re-take that through your recruiter when the time comes. It's not a binding score. The one you take at the MEPS is and you want the very best score you can possibly get. That not only determines your eligibility to enlist, it determines your job. If you hate your job you'll hate the military. So that test is a big deal.

    That 38 is your AFQT score. That determines if you are eligible to enlist and is calculated the same by each branch. That is a percentile score. That means you scored a 38%. That about as low as you can get and still enlist. You typically need a 50 to join the Air Force though the absolute minimum allowed by law is a 35 if you have a high school diploma.

    With a score that low you will have very few jobs available to you. The USAF breaks your scores into four aptitude areas: Mechanical, Admin, General, and Electrical (MAGE). Each job has a minimum score required in a MAGE area to qualify. For example, medical jobs are all found in the 4XXXX AFSC series in the General aptitude area. The lowest minimum qualifying score is a G44 and the highest is G66 (Dental Lab). The link below lists all of the jobs available in the USAF by MAGE area and the minimum score to qualify.

    https://www.military.com/join-armed-forc...

    You have some time. Get yourself a study guide and look for the practice ASVAB online. There are a whole host of resources out there to help. The test is standardized such that any 10th grade high school student with a passing GPA (2.0) should be able to qualify for enlistment. If you have a 4.0 then you have enough background knowledge to do well. It comes down more to test performance. That comes with practice. Spend time with the study guide and the practice tests and you'll do fine when the time comes.

  • After army AIT, if leave is taken, does the army pay for your flight back home?

    Best answer: You are only paid of official travel between your old duty station and your new duty station.

    Best answer: You are only paid of official travel between your old duty station and your new duty station. If the place you want to take leave is between your old duty station and your new duty station, then you are in luck.

    If your old duty station is Fort Benning, Ga and you are assigned to Fort Campbell, Ky, you would be paid or given a means of travel to Fort Campbell, Ky. If the place you want to take leave is Dallas,Texas, the cost to getting to Dallas would at your expense.

    The person on this forum that indicated he did it, must have been in a different United States military than the others that are posting answers on this forum.

    I was in the United States military for over 20 years and was never paid for travel while on leave. I was always paid for official change of station moves. If I desired to take leave in conjunction with my change of station (PCS) and my leave place was not in a direct line with my PCS station, I had the responsibility of paying for the additional travel.

    From one combat veteran, thanks for your service.

    I hope this has been of some benefit to you, good luck.

  • Go from Enlisted to officer in the navy?

    If you switch from being enlisted to an officer would you have to start out as O-1 regardless of prior rank? For example, you've been in 15+ years and are an E7, E8 or E9 and decide "I wanna be an officer now". Could you start out as a higher ranked officer or does it have to be O-1?

    Im going to a different college this year and was planning on doing aviation flight science. However, I have started to change my mind because it is a lot of money to fly and i am not sure ill be able to afford it. I was going to change my major to computer science or computer engineering, and apply to the coast guard academy next year. Would it be possible for me to, if i got accepted, switch my major from computer science to aviation at USCGA? Thank you!
