I went over to the dark side as an E-7 .. now a current serving 0-6. It is a different world, so make certain you understand the politics of it all. If you feel you can better serve your country, the military and the Air Force as an officer, go for it.

I cannot offer any advice, but I am planning to become an officer in 3 years or less.

I've got one up on you...not only did I go from Enlisted to Officer, but I changed services (Coast Guard to Army) to do it! (Don't ask... )

Yes, Ireland. Unfortunately, rank doesn't carry over from one country's military to another.
