I went into the Air Force & Basic Training way back in 1973. It was 6 weeks then - followed by however many weeks for your technical school - then off to your first duty station.
Back then we got yelled at - insulted - so on and so on - but got through it and the last couple weeks not as much yelling - came together as a team \ short term family.
Years later I went Army National Guard - went through their MP Academy - out now.
I'd like to know from someone who either has actually been through the Air Force Basic training in the recent few years how it is now.
Most of the young men I try to encourage to go into any of the branch's seem to be afraid of going to war - or if not that so much - of basic training.
Too much movie stuff or whatever I guess.
My youngest son has just about decided to go into the Air Force - but is having second thoughts - I think maybe due to his girlfriend telling him she knew someone who recently finished basic training (Army I think) and how they "Yell at you and stay on your butt 24/7".
Anyway - what's it like in the AF Basic now - from who has been there recently - or from someone who has a friend \ relative who has - not just hearsay.
Thanks in advance....
