Miami Air and Marine Branch is located at Homestead.

Yet Homestead is a Reserve Air Base. They moved out almost all activities after Andrew in 1992. It is just a shell of what it used to be.

Non sequitur much?

I stand corrected. I keep thinking of Miami Air civilian charters. Of course there are military and customs interdiction aircraft and boats located at Homestead.

What is left there, as I said, is just a shell of the total military presence before it became a Reserve Base.

New to the forums... Iíve started the AMO process, does anyone know of a service commitment? And how long it might be? Iím excited by this prospect and am definitely in it for the long term, Iím just curious as I havenít read of one anywhere.

Thank you, I figured with all the training they provide you they would want at least minimum of employment out of you.

FYI if you are just now starting the process, there are already over 700 people ahead of you in the pipeline, only 50 of those further along have a shot at getting a start date at the academy in 2021. It's going to be a long road to get on board.

Negative, at some stage of the application process. There are a lot of boxes to check after the initial application.
