This specific job involves maintaining and keeping a check on many of the air planes and fighter jets “to make sure they are ready and have passed test that prove they are ready and ok to fly, carry missiles, and move equipment”. First of all to join the Air Force, recruits must take a series of entrance exams that have tested the recruits on their knowledge in a overall understanding of all subjects. After that test, recruits are sent for a physical and mental screening. These test are to make sure they are physically able to join the Air Force during their time serving, they wont have any health issues that could affect their health. A second test called the ASVAB.

Not all jobs that one has requested in promised, but you are given one that is similar or a better choice that benefits yourself and the Air Force. When a job is assigned the soldier must attend a tech school to start learning the proper skills that is needed for the job that they were assigned. Each tech school can vary of how long recruits may attend based on which job their were assigned. Once graduated from tech school, soldiers are sent to a air base that can vary from any where’s in the world, and they can now begin their Air Force career and lifestyle. There are many benefits in joining the Air Force.
A major benefit that can affect soldiers the most is schooling. The Air Force can begin to pay soldiers to go to school while also gaining a college education. Other benefits that are given is the process of how soldiers are paid.

Soldiers pay can also be affected by which rank and class their in as a Airmen”. other great benefits are the retirement and insurance program. All benefits that are giving in the Air Force can affects ones life in a great meaning. Some Branches of the Military may not ever offer as many great benefits as the United States Air Force does. Overall, being in the air force can be a honorable and courteous thing to do as a American. living and Air Force life can have many struggles but it van be just as normal as a regular everyday job that most Americans have.
