Hello all, Long time reader, first time poster ;) I'll try to keep it simple: I'm separating from the Air Force in January and I'm 99% sure that physics is the right academic/career choice for me. I'm curious if anyone else out there has had a similar experience as the one I'm about to experience? If not the same, then at least someone who's left active duty to pursue their education. I've read a few posts my former military members but none went into much details on their "lessons learned." I won't lie, this decision makes me nervous and any tips/advice that the community can offer would be much appreciated!
