Branch to Branch?
Simple Q. If I was in the Air Force for 4 years, and then decided to get out, is it at all possible to join the Navy or Army after that? Age is not a problem.

I'd be going from Combat Controller, and once in, try going into BUDs, to train to be a SEAL.

Absolutely. I did, and so did many people I knew in Navy Officer Candidate School and in Navy Boot Camp. Just go to a recruiter and talk with him/her. Beware, though, because they don't get credit for you joining, thus some will try to make you not want to join to keep their paperwork load down. However, officer... More

Don't know what your game is, but you said that: "I will enlist soon, and i'm just curious as to what people think of these jobs. I also would like to settle with a family sometime, not wanting to be out ALL the time 3 weeks ago -" (copied from your own profile/questions)
