The U.S. Air Force is currently accepting applications from prior service military members to enter active duty. Military members who separated from the Air Force, Army, Navy or Marines with an honorable discharge may be eligible to re-enter active duty into their previous career field, or retrain into various other career fields. Current and former Guard and Reserve members in all services may also be eligible for an active duty Air Force position. Special Operations opportunities are also available to those who qualify. All assignments will be direct-duty assignments, except for those who retrain or enter Special Operations training.
To qualify for an active-duty position, every individual must meet various qualifying standards. Qualifying factors include re-enlistment code, length of separation, credit report, rank and career-field eligibility. If an individual is currently in the National Guard or Reserves, a conditional release from their commanding officer will be required.
Interested individuals should contact their local active-duty Air Force recruiter to start the qualification process. For assistance in finding a local recruiter, visit the “Find a Recruiter” feature on airforce.com or call 1-800-423-USAF.
