How do you join the United States Air Force?

Joining the United States Air Force always begins with talking to a recruiter. The recruiter will tell you about the various benefits of joining the Air Force , and help you identify a career you might want to pursue. After you have decided to join, the recruiter will take you to a MEPS (Military Enlistment and Processing Station). Here, you will undergo various medical examinations and fill out a LOT of paperwork. You will then enter the delayed enlistment program, where you will wait until an opening becomes available. This may take several weeks. After an opening appears, you will return to MEPS and receive final processing and take your oath of enlistment. Then you will receive tickets to be transported to San Antonio.
