I want to be an airborne crypto linguist. Not ground. My recruiter is a nice guy but a little bit shady. I wanted to know if there was a choice between the two. My recruiter told me that you get to choose a preference between the two and you get what you get and you don't get upset. (based off the needs of the AF) Is this true or is it possible that you can choose between the two. Like I said i really would like to be airborne.

Your recruiter is 1000000% acurate.

1. You might not be qualified to be airborne. The medical exam requirements are must stricter.
2. Airborne linguist is a VERY VERY small career field. We see about 10X as many ground jobs as air.
3. If there are not any airborne openings, we can't just throw more people into the career field than there are openings for. If there are no openings, there are no openings.
