Ah…the Air Force. If you’re an Airman, you KNOW about what the Air Force has to offer, doncha?

And I would hope you remembered the beginning of the Air Force song…how could you possibly forget it?

Some things are just imprinted into our minds forever. A lot of those things could have come from serving your time in the military. Albeit I am only an E-4…but even at that rank, I have been through a lot.

I received an e-mail from a friend (who, by the way, finished his contract this month, ***tear***)  that reflected on reasons to LOVE the Air Force. I will share some of those with you here.

Reasons why I love the Air Force

1. Yesterday sucked, today sucked, tomorrow is going to suck, and this

seems to be a pretty solid forecast for the rest of my enlistment.

2. Spending 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year training for

something that there is a 99.9% chance that we will never do.

3. WWWDWOA? (what would we do without acronyms?)-My take-SERIOUSLY. The acronyms were meant to make life easier, but sometimes I think they were over kill! Ahhhhh!!

4. Taking simple daily tasks and breaking them down into nuclear

physics  before doing them.-My Take-They must have an AFSC out there titled “Break Things Down Into the Tiniest Form & Drive People Insane with a Million Boring Briefings Technician” LOL.

9. I love cleaning the same places over and over and over until either

the paint comes off or my hands are bleeding.-My Take-One time, I had to sweep the parking lot,but not only to pick up the trash, but to pick up and get rid of the ROCKS on the ground. Seriously?! The rocks??!

15. Getting “random” drug tests every couple of weeks. Not many people

can testify to taking about 50 drug tests in the past two years without

having ever been caught doing drugs in my life. -Yeah. Really. We could use some of those drug tests for the REAL druggies out there, eh?

26. Having to change your computer password every two weeks to keep

terrorists from hacking into my e-mail and stealing all of these jokes.- He he.

29. Oh, look…There’s the boss. We better all stand at attention until

he tells us we can move. Do they do that in the civilian world too?-My Take-Sometimes, repeatedly standing up then sitting back down can be a lot of work!

30. Is that local time or Zulu?-My Take-SO, do the people in England call it Zulu time too, or are they excluded?

42. Why did our parents even bother giving us first names?-My TakeBecause they had NO IDEA we would be where we are today, that’s why!

43. IN what other job can you do things NOT the RIGHT WAY, but the AIR

FORCE WAY?-My TakeAnyone  can adapt this laughable motivator…just fill in the blank! “Don’t do it that way, do it the _________ (fill in the blank with your company’s name) WAY!” Say it with me now.
