A friend of mine was wondering if the USAF was taking GEDs currently, I'm not sure because my DH is Army. Also, is the Air Guard taking GEDs or doing a GED program? Thankyou!Answer Question
Yes and No. They basically do it on a case by case situation. Only 1% of the enlistees have a GED. But if your friend has a good work record or has received accomplishments through work then it would greatly increase their chances of getting in. Also, if they have 15 hours of college credit, then to the military that is the equivalent of having a High School Diploma. I would encourage your friend to go talk to a recruiter to discuss their options.

"The Air Force is the most strict on this matter. The Air Force allows less than one percent of annual enlistments to be recruits without a high school diploma. The Marines have the next highest standards. No more than five percent of Marine recruits can be GED-holders. The Army allows no more than ten percent each year, and the Navy limits GED enlistments to no more than five to ten percent each year."
