Starting at the left:  Sgt. Shannon Niemi, Sgt. Matt Allen, Airman Deni Morenz and Captain Neely.

Sergeant Niemi started out by telling the kids about the education benefits that they can receive by going to the Air National Guard.  They have a program which will pay for your college and provide many benefits for your future.  The number that I have to call is 1-800-638-0936 for the Air National Guard recruiting office.

One thing that she didn't say is that just being in the Air Force is an education in its self.  The Air Force has excellent training in all fields including, electronics, mechanics, jet mechanics, ordinance and many more.  If you're into travel and adventure while you're getting paid to go to school, this is the organization to join.

I was in the Navy.  They also have the same kinds of opportunities.  When I was 18 years old, I was in a super high tech electronics school with all of the latest and best equipment to work with.  The electronic equipment that was provided in this school was unmatched by any civilian school, bar none. 

When I was only twenty years old, I was working on the A-7 Corsair II Jet Fighter.  By the time I was twenty four I was working on super high tech TACAN Navigational equipment, the PMDS Projected Map Display System and in charge of the night shift electronics shop.  I have already traveled to many foreign countries, not for just a day like these expensive cruises do, but for a week at a time.  I climbed the highest mountain in the lower 48 states, and spent a year aboard the USS Kitty Hawk.  You can see the photos of this cruise Click Here

Take a look around your town.  Look at the twenty and twenty four year olds.  Where have they been?  What are they doing now?  What is their life going to look like in twenty years?  Most of the people that I've met worked their tails off at a low pay, dirty job just to get one trip only part way across the country.

I've been to Hawaii, three times, to Japan, Korea, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Okinawa.  I've been south of the Equator, to the sea of Japan, the South China sea and a whole lot of other places.  Don't think I'm bragging because this is just the truth.  You can do it too and get paid in the process.  Take a look at the photos of my cruise above and you will see that it's true.

Also, take a look at the Air Force men and women in the picture above.  They're young and professional.  They aren't filthy and dirty.  They're not sitting in some fox hole like you see in the movies.  They're right here in Illinois, close to they're home.  They get thirty days paid vacation, free medical, dental and retirement.  Their college is paid for and they get to travel all over the United States and the World.  They're not stuck in some dingy factory in some small town making minimum wage and driving a junk car.

Take a look around then look at these photos on all of these pages.  I'm telling you the truth.  If I didn't become disabled, I would be in the military now.  I'm 45 years old and since I started making Yellowairplane.com pages, a lot of my old Navy buddies have contacted me and said that they wish that they would have stayed in the Navy.  In the Navy or the Air Force or the Marines and Army, you have opportunity and you get to meet the best friends of your life.  You're a team and you enjoy life. 

I worked for the Army for six years after the Navy.  I receive disability checks every month with the best medical insurance.  Do your friends have this security?  No way.  Take a look around and see the difference between the kids that were in high school with you who stayed at home and the ones on these pages.  Here's a good question!  Do any of your friends get to work on one of these beautiful F-16's. 

Like I said look around then send me email at the bottom of this page.
