Hello all, I am currently enlisted in the Air Force (about to ship out to basic in a month) and needed to ask a question about studying physics. I would ask my recruiter but all he would do is blow smoke up my *** and sugar coat it all so I thought I'd make a post here. My question is how well the Air Force(Or military in general) and a physics degree would go together? More so would I have a leg up on people who don't have any military background? Are there more job opportunities out there because I went into the Air Force? (Note: I do not want to teach) Also does anyone know how good the physics program is that the Air Force teaches?(Shot in the dark but I thought I'd ask) I keep reading articles about how hard it is to find jobs with a background in physics. One article that really struck me was this: http://wuphys.wustl.edu/~katz/scientist.html [Broken] (I've seen it on these forums before too) Granted it is almost 10 years old but I do not relish the thought of spending 10-12 years studying only to get a job that barley pays the bills (30,000-50,000$). Another thing I have always been interested in is computers; which I have always been very good with as long as I can remember. Would it be more viable for my future to study something in this field instead of physics? Thank you in advance!
