I am an 18 year old highschool senior who has been wanting to join the military since i entered high school. After long talks with my college counsler and dean of students (EX Army ranger), i decided i wanted to go into pararescue. I have been researching the requirments and courses for the PJ's. What i reolized is that the pipeline is hard as **** and most likley i will not pass it (i am being realistic, not disrespectful). I am planning to go through 4 years undergrad and one year graduate in buisiness, while attending a USAF ROTC program before i join the military. I am willing to train myself for five years to become a PJ, but i wasnt sure it was the job for me. Today i came across a USAF job called USAF K9 handlers. I am convinced that this is the job i have to to. I love dogs and have always wanted to have one. I cant imagine another job i would want to do in the USAF. What i want to know is:
1. How are you assigned a dog?
2. Is it a fun job or am i going to hate it?
3. How physically fit should i be before i attempt to pursue this job
4. I want to here about any personal expieriences that you are willing to share.
I want to thank any vets for their service, and i want you to know it is heros like you that inspire me to be just like you.
