Answer by  patti (29325)

"Prior service" for the USAF means that an individual was previously in the USAF. If the individual separated in good standing, there are bonuses and benefits for rejoining.

Prior Service is any previous enlisted or commissioned service in the active duty, Guard, reserve, or Coast Guard. Prior service time effects your pay, time-in-service calculations and may entitle you to your previous grade. It DOES NOT count Jr ROTC, ROTC or time in a private military school or public service jobs like police or fire or paramedic.

The USAF Prior Service program is a direct duty assignment program that allows select individuals to return to active duty. Candidates must hold an AFSC, MOS, or NEC, which will qualify or convert to an Air Force Specialty. Contact an Air Force Recruiter, who is the best source of information regarding the program.
