I am a 27yr old married man with a 4 year old stepdaughter. I have a BS in Information Technology and an MBA. Currently work in IT healthcare for the past 5 1/2 years and worked in state goverment in IT for 4 years prior to that.

I am at a point where I am ready for a new challenge and considering applying for the Air Force OTS. I know it is very competitive and there is no guarentee of being selected. I want to stay in IT, but understand as an Officer that no job is guaranteed and I could end up in a completely different career field. Of course there are many hurdles along the way and I am probably looking at a taking an initial pay cut. Looking at all the benefits it is definitely something I am interested in, but at the same time I am a little reluctant. I am just tired of the same ol' desk job everyday. All advice is appreciated. Thanks!
