Airmen Bucket List
(11 things these heroes must complete on during their First Enlistment)

1. Get a good mentor. Find that one NCO (or two!) that is sharp and motivating. Stick with them. They will teach you the ropes and transform you into the sharp Airman that you aspire to be. Use what you’ve learned and use your abilities to guide and mold your future airmen to becoming the best Airman they can be.

2. Get a passport and travel. Don’t just stay in one place your entire enlistment. Get out and view the world. When you take leave, take leave. Leave the area. Experience another culture. You get 2 weeks of leave every year, do something amazing with it.

3. Take advantage of all education opportunities. Obtain your CCAF and/or bachelor’s degree. Your tuition is paid for! Earning that degree will make your job resumes more unique than the rest of the competition without one.

4. Get certifications. If your job offers national certifications, get them. It will help you secure your future with your life outside of the military. It will also make getting a job much easier and job opportunities less limited.

5. Make a scrapbook. Being in the military will always be a big part of your life, just like high school. Keeping photos and little mementos of your experience would make a great story you can share with your children and grandchildren. As you start to stack paper and make it rain, save those old stripes and ribbon racks…

6. Wear your uniform home and visit your high school. It is the perfect opportunity to display how proud you are to be in the United States military and to inspire those who are lost about their future.

7. Tie up loose ends with family. Some Airman have left home on bad terms. If you did, be the bigger person and make amends. It is a part of life and an even bigger part of growing up. When all is said and done, family is everything.

8. Network. There are reasons why you meet people in life. There are other Airmen out there that have attained skills you don’t have. It is a great way to learn new trades and is free of charge.

9. Read to elementary kids. Participate in Read Across America. Those kids are our future and they look up to soldiers like us. You will have enriched their future as a positive public figure.

10. Get involved with the base & community. No I am not talking about sucking up, I am referring to giving back to the people that support you. Volunteering for Habitat for Humanity or a food kitchen is a great way to show your appreciation for their support. Nothing pleases the soul better than helping those in need and nothing touches the heart more than a smile and a simple “thank you for serving our country.”
11. Attend a finance class and make an investment (TSP). Secure your future! We all make bad financial choices at some point in our life. Don’t let debt control you. If you do this, that trip to Hawaii becomes more realistic, doesn’t it?
