What I Wish I Would Have Known About Military Life

There was a lot I needed to learn about military life before I decided to join the military. You don’t really know what you don’t know about military life until you are in the service and experience different parts of it. You might know that before I started looking into the military, I didn’t know anything about it. I didn’t know the difference between an officer and enlisted. I even remember when a friend recommended, I talk to someone, he happened to be a Colonel, I called him by his first name when I went to his office and was quickly corrected. At the time I thought the way they responded to my mistake was a little dramatic, but now I know that Col is more than just a job title.

Now, I have a hard time not calling my past commanders with their rank that no longer applies to their name. So, you could say I knew nothing about the military and little did I know how my life would change when I decided to join the US Air Force.
