    Sure you can! Just as long as the person asking doesn't write your fitrep.

    Surefire way to reach Sgt Major!

    Kidding, of course.

    Thanks. It doesn't feel any different, except now people expect that I actually know the answer. They're genuinely frustrated/upset/confused when I have no idea what is going on, vice just amused...

    As many have said, just ask your OSO. The worst that happens is he/she says no.

    Also, 24 is nowhere near too old to start. Age at commission is capped at 30, with some exception for prior service. Your age isn't a prohibitive factor.

    Your chances are what you make them. If you want it, do what it takes to get a slot. If you get through OCS and then decide you don't want it, don't accept the commission.

    If your first...

    No. Bad credit will hinder your ability to get a Secret or Top Secret clearance if they are necessary for your MOS.

    No credit does not. If you do not have a credit card, or any...

    There are many times I come through the gate in PT gear or civvies and change in the gym before work. I wouldn't salute in civvies or PT gear outside of the car; what makes it different when...

    I try to return salutes while I'm in a vehicle and stopped. I don't when I'm driving, but I try to make some kind of gesture to acknowledge the salute.
    I figure most people really couldn't care...

    What course of action you take is completely up to you, don't expect anyone to make your choice for you. However, I'd go so far as to say it would not be wrong to officially report your recruiter, to...

    If you really want the flight time that's great. However, I'd honestly suggest that you don't go for your PPL before IFS. IFS is not difficult, nor is it time-consuming. It is only a 4-5 week course;...

    Inter-service transfers are possible, but resigning your commission changes that. I worked at an OSO for a little while and we never worked with any such situation. I'd advise, like Staff Sergeant...

    If your only reason for joining is the opportunity to be a pilot, I would suggest that you reevaluate your decision.

    A 1000 or higher is required on the SAT. That 1000 figure is Math and Verbal only. If you did not take the SAT, but the ACT instead, you need a composite score of 24 or higher.
