New, Now, and Next!

Just wanted to pop in here and give you a jumbled update post!  

Facebook - Here are the current BMT groups that are active on FB for those leaving for BMT.

November 2012 - Recently added!
December 2012 - Recently added!
May 2013 - Recently added!

YouTube - You've probably noticed that YT isn't the strongest area of AHE.  If you're not a big reader, you're going to want to check out That2Kool4SkoolGuy's channel on YouTube.  He's another great resource for BMT and tech school information, especially if you're interested in Security Forces.  He's another big contributor on the BMT Facebook pages and has a huge fan base.  Plus, he's a male.  I just can't answer male-specific questions.  :)  A dedicated Airman, I highly recommend his stuff!  You can find him on YouTube here and on Facebook here.

Insider's Guide to AFSCs - I can't take full credit for this idea, but I've always kicked around the idea of more guest posters and testimonials.  Eventually, AHE is going to feature another tab with a long list of AFSCs.  As I find contributors (or, as they volunteer/find me), I'm going to have them answer a standardized series of questions about their AFSC, and hopefully provide contact info for further questions.  An overview of the tech school, a "day in the life," pros/cons, and CDC information is what I'm hoping to be able to provide for you.  I'll keep you folks posted as this feature rolls out, and if you're currently in the operational AF, consider contributing as a guest poster!

Hey Erin, you think the group would mind if I joined a few? I can help give some advice and answer questions! My hubby could help for the males with questions too!

@Mrs. H - I'm all over that like nobody's business!

@Melissa - I would definitely take you up on that offer! Thanks for the encouragement!

I would love to read an airborne linguist's testimonial! This is a job that I'm seriously looking at, and most of what I've read is very negative.

Thank you so much for everything that you post! It's made me so much more confident that this is something I can do :)

@Marlene - I'd love to bring you posts that share the good and the bad! I definitely don't want it to discourage people, as nothing is ever that one-sided.

I'm so glad that I can keep you motivated and positive about all of the AMAZING things you're about to do! :)
