    It's about one inch in depth, and about 3 inches across. The proper term for it is 'pectus excavatum'. I don't know the severity cause I haven't been to a doctor and I don't plan on going to one about it. And yeah, I plan on getting chest muscle so it doesn't look as bad.



    After looking through google images, I feel a bit better because jesus christ some of those are scary as hell
    I have the same thing. It causes a very minor leak in one of the artery/veins going into my heart. Nothing sever. And by the size of yours, I'd say you're fine.

    I find it really weird how people completely fail to be able to comprehend and obey simple orders.

    Fuck, my college has a really stupid system and I ended up missing out on an entire semester. Looks like I'm gonna have to sacrifice my summer to get my 15 credits. I regret not finishing high school normally, I would've been able to join in 3 months from now

    Started Air Force Cadets today, and it's surprisingly fun.

    Although military protocol is a bit weird. ie having to wear a collared shirt inside a Mess Hall.
    Air Force Academy?

    Friendly reminder to all actually following the thread and may have missed the first post I've been in the Air Force for almost 3 years and can help you with almost any types of questions you have. If I don't know a question, I can do my best to figure it out. PM me and questions you may have.

    Cause its related to the airforce, thus stemming from gay roots.

    I take offense to that.

    The Air Force isn't NEARLY as gay as the navy.

    Cheap shot everyone know the navy is WAY more gay the the Air Force. You're just mad cause most of the hot girls join our branch.

    However they're all medical and you and me should both be mad since they normally avoid flightline all together and the ones who make it get fucked more then wrenches get turned.

    But in all seriousness:

    Having looked at Marine MOSsesses, I found that I'd be best fit for Infantry, Food Service or Infantry.

    I hope I get Food Service, I can't shoot worth shit.

    The majority of the navy is pretty gay, but corpsman/aircrew/SEALS have the marines respect.

    Lots of running, crunches, and pull ups. Learn your general orders and some basic history of the marine corps.

    Alright I'll keep doing that my last IST I got a 9:32 mile and a half run time and 15 pullups and 85 crunches. I've got some room for improvement.

    I really want to be a pilot. I know, I know, everyone in the air force wants to be a pilot. But I have the sort of hardheaded determination that I will do my best to be one.
    I really want to fly A10's, and I know that you have to be at the top of Flight School to get first dibs. I am also really good with aircraft and learning the mechanics and such- DCS A10C is my favorite game of all time, thanks to the fidelity.
    My only problem is that I have horrid vision. 20/80. I know you can get Lasik, but will they look at that? I wanted to do ROTC, but I think you have to be a certain age before you can get Lasik. However, since I plan to do ROTC I am afraid they might record my poor vision since I will be 18 at that time.
    Would they update it when I graduated college and went into Flight School? Or would I be unable to ever fly for the AF?

    If you were thinking about going recon I would go 0311 first but iirc all the 03xx MOSs are closed

    I don't think they're closed, they're just cutting down so it'll be harder to get and stay in.

    Edited:

    After looking around a bit, it looks like infantry will be the most affected, there's a better chance of getting into recon than infantry

    Good luck. Took me about a month to get my job and date. Nothing you can do now other then wait and hope you don't get screwed over.

    I'm in a facebook group with a bunch of other April shippers, and one of the guys just got bumped from his intel job. Apparently some bad credit history cropped up that didn't show up on the original credit check

    Someone else, or a recruiter, would be a much better person to answer this than me, but whatever. From what I think I know, if your vision is really really bad, you can't fly, even if you get it Lasik'd. I'm not sure what the cutoff point is, so that would be something to look up.

    Otherwise, mad props for wanting to fly the world's coolest plane.
