Basic Training and job school are at Lackland Air Force base in San Antonio Texas. You could end up doing one or more of three things in the Security Forces job (MP). They are Ground base defense, Security, and Law enforcement. Generally you do not have a pick of the what assignments you will be doing.

Expect to work nights, weekends, holidays as this job requires people 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Expect deployments to the "Sand box". Did this in the reserves for 6 years. I was activated after 9/11 for almost 2 years.

No problem. Good luck with your decision. If this is the job you want make sure it is guaranteed when you sign, although they usually need people in this field.

Military service will open doors in LE that You don't even know about yet, Tommy. I say do it, man. First things first, though. Go take the ASVAB, then sit down with Your Ombudsman to see if LE is right for You.

Key words in this post are military service. PD's generally don't care what field you are in but respect military service in general.
