Not in any case I've ever seen (which granted, isn't many). It's the discipline, camaraderie and rigour that straightens out wayward young men.
And the USAF isn't a bunch of men with guns trained to run screaming across fields and kill other people. Not quite how it works. Controllers, schedulers, aircraft maintenance, there's a lot of beauracracy and management in the forces, etc.
I worked on an airforce base (not US) for about a year when I was younger, and I don't think I met anyone who fit the description of trained killer. OK, airborne, but that's where they put the crazies anyway. Other than that, it's almost an office job.
