Happy as can be haha!

My first firearm. It'll be good to get some more practice on the M16 platform before basic.
I am happy for you bud and I hope the roads of life lead you where you want to go. It is hard to figure out what you want to do for the rest of your life at your age. It took me a few years and a few set-backs too to find my path. I am proud of your choice to try and serve the Air Force. It is a very honorable profession and a great stepping stone to other opportunities.

I suggest you write down on a piece of paper a simple diagram of where you want to be in the next five-years and draw/write out the steps to get there...I know that may sound silly; but, it helps me to visualize things at times.

Also, go to your local library and read everything you can about Air Force Training and Operations. Get yourself a step ahead and learn before you have to learn. This proactive approach will help you stand out and will help you succeed in the long-run.

Best Wishes!
