How do I graduate Air Force BMT with at least a rank insignia on my shoulder rather than nothing at all?
Ive seen in pictures and photos that when some people graduate Air Force BMT they graduate with no rank or insignia on their shoulder. I am enlisted with a 6 year contract, Air Traffic Control. How could I graduate with at least one stripe as an Airman on my shoulder in BMT? any help and advice would be GREATLY appreciated.
You will receive 2 stripes on your sleeve, not your shoulder after your Tech School is complete since you signed for 6. To get the stripe after BMT, you must have taken a sufficient amount of college, and the AF recognized it, or you participated in a recognized High School ROTC for a specified amount of time. I think there is even a program if you were an Eagle Scout or something like that. Talk to your recruiter. otherwise you are an Airman Basic following BMT. also known as a 'slick sleeve', or no stripes.
All that aside, rank is more or less meaningless until you make SrA (E-4). Rank amongst Airmen (E-1 to E-3) is like virtue amongst whores.
