Benefits How’s the food? 4 or 6


The pay in the Air Force may not be great at first glance, but there are a lot of benefits that you won't get in other jobs that can add up quickly to make life a lot more comfortable.

How’s the food?

Food at BMT is not all about MRE's (Meals Ready to Eat) or unidentifiable goo served from a hose. The food is actually quite good, as long as you have time to eat it.

Welcome to AFBMT

imageWelcome to, where I hope to help give people interested in joining the US Air Force a good idea of what the process of enlisting and going through basic training is like. I’m a young Airman currently in the Air Force myself and frequently get questions about what it’s like, so I thought I’d make this site to answer those questions.

I am obviously only one person and only have my own experiences to go on though, so your own experiences may be different than mine. I welcome feedback and input from others that have joined or are thinking of joining, so please let me know if there are things that are inaccurate or that can be improved throughout the site so that I can create a better resource for everyone.

Thanks and I hope you find the site valuable.
