Re: Separating from the Military
You'll be fine. Just remember, we all have to get out of the military sometime. There's alot of jobs out there. In the Army you go through seperation classes, I would imagine the Air Force probably has something similar. They should help you write a resume. What I was taught and worked for me was to not fill it full of military jargon that no one will understand. No acrynoms or anything. Stress your leadership skills, works well under pressure, used to having short time requirements etc etc.
As soon as I left the Army in 09 after 8 years of being in, I went right into a job as a military contractor and went right back to Iraq so I was lucky. Then I ended up working as a contractor stateside for a bit and now am a federal employee. Definitly check out the USAJOBs.gov website.
The biggest thing is to figure out what you want to do and where you want to live, then works towards making it happen.
It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God that such men lived.
