  • you will stay where you are until he gets out of basic and his advanced training (im not sure what af calls it, but for army its AIT)
    then you will be sent wherever they need your husband.

  • After boot camp he'll go to training for his job. The last week of school his class will get a bundle of orders. Orders are bases they get staitoned at.) they pick their orders ( used to, I think they still do..) based on who has the highest grade in the class down to the lowest. The orders are random, wherever AF bases are... But he will have somewhat of a choice. For example 30 kids in his class... 30 different sets of orders... and he's sayyy.. 5th in his class.. he'll have 25 places to choose from of where to be stationed. =)
