    New Guy Debating Between ATC or Air Force

    Good Afternoon,

    As the title states I just stumbled upon on this website not too long ago. I have already received my TOL back in February and was just told via an email I sent about a month ago that my CIL should be arriving soon, they are just trying not to overload medical. However, even before I applied for this job last year, I have been considering going into the Air Force as an officer with my Bachelor's Degree in Atmospheric Sciences. Lately, I have been struggling try to decide between which one I really want to do, and being young (23) and still living at home my parents just want me to do whatever makes me happy. Thankfully I have no loans or bills or anything so I am not tied down to anything out where I live on Long Island. I was just curious if anyone has chosen between the two before or was ever in the same situation? Thank you.

    -Jake K.

    If you want to serve your country do it- I'd never say otherwise, and BIGTIME respect for even thinking about it in your shoes.

    Thay being said..... don't expect this opportunity to show back up if you do a 6 year hit in the military. I can tell you if I was in your shoes I'd choose to do my public service on the civilian side.

    Let fate decide for you. Go to the academy. Pass? ATC. Fail? Air Force.

    Do ATC in the Air Force, then do it for the FAA.

    Second this. Keep your options open. If serving your country is important to you, join the reserves or the national guard once you checkout at your facility and your job is protected.
