    Don't completely discount the Air Force if you want to blow stuff up. Tactical Patrol guys go out with the Army and Marines to help find enemies and then send the planes with bombs after them. Para Rescue and SERE are hard core jobs as well. PR in particular has a very high wash out rate from what I hear. Your vision problems may prevent some of those unfortunately, but it's worth looking into.

    Actually roadrunner you're right, the forward air controllers (the equivalent to the air force special forces I am told) is what i wanted as my AFSC after graudation and upon commission (I was in AFROTC) but MEPS said no go (color vision ofcorse) and they said box mover was in my future. I said no thanks.

    To the tune of "My Bonnie Lies over the Ocean":

    They made him a second lieutenant
    They gave him his two bars of gold
    They made him a forward observer
    And he lived to be 3 seconds old . . .


    Career choices can be important.
