    Not sure why you are going in

    But remember Air Force,,, planes,,, flying mission

    Unless you are at a mutual aid base or very large base you more than likely will not fight much fire

    Not sure how young/old you are but do 4 years deploy once or twice and take every city fire department test available across the country.......ideally the best thing is to be on a city or municipality..... some guys get out and go back to work as DOD civilians.....you'll see later just be in good shape before u ship out

    Once you get assigned to a base, do not stay on base, see the world

    Suggest you do not burn any leave prior going to your assigned base
