    I made this thread about the US Military DEP. I am pretty sure every branch has a DEP program, and I am in the USAF Active Duty DEP, and was hoping to maybe find some other DEP'ers in this forum, hopefully their is some others.

    Here is some information on the DP: The Military Delayed Enlistment Program (DEP)

    haha, I have seen a lot of people lately going in at like 25-26 although its usually for the money and not for pride or self-service. Whatever floats your boat I suppose.

    Honestly, I needed a job. But I kept re-enlisting because I loved serving my nation...and on 1 March, I'll be a civilian again after 20 years.

    I wouldn't trade it for anything. My thanks to you for your interest in serving. You and the United States will both benefit. :salute:

    Oh, are you getting the 20 year benefit that everyone I talk to is insanely in love with? I heard it's a really good deal.

    Thanks, I plan to stay in for a career, I really just am not made for anything else. I am only good at teaching & farming, both of which take years to achieve, and farming is only what I want to do later on when I settle down at a spot.

    Yup. Pension, TriCare, eligibility to be buried in a national cemetary, all that good stuff. :tongue:
    Nothing wrong with teaching or farming. What's your AFSC?

    I am going to stay in 20 at least, but I am actually hoping maybe 25-30. Although, who knows what the future holds.

    They haven't assigned me one yet, but I am hoping to ask to take the Special Forces Exam thing, where you can qualify for their jobs. My main hope is Security Forces, but if that fails I am shooting for Fire Protection.
