Thanks, that answered my first question.
My second question was if I went to college and got a degree then joined the Air Force, could I get some money to help pay off college debt. I ask this because I have heard that if someone joins the military first, then they can get some money to pay for college.
I don't want this to be taken wrong; I'm not wanting to join the military just to pay for college. I have really wanted to join the military for several years now, even if it meant enlisting, but I was told by someone who enlisted in the Army that it would be far better to go into the military as an officer. Plus I am still considering trying to be a fighter pilot because I love flying. I am planing on going to college primarily because I think it would beneficial to me in the military. I am still not sure what I want to get a degree in, I am thinking something along the lines of aerospace engineering; but I am only 16 yrs. old so I guess I have some time to think about it.
Thanks again for your help!
