Had a friend from college who went on to fly F-15's. He got an aerospace degree, did a lot of flying before the AF, was ROTC, and in his free time if I remember correctly, he played a lot of golf.
Had another friend from high school who went to the Air Force Academy, he's a radar guy on B-52's. He doesn't get bitches, he's married. In his free time he hangs out with his daughters or drinks beer. He bombs things in Louisiana and North Dakota mostly. And he did get dumped out in the mountains for a week or so once and probably ate bugs or something, but mostly he did a lot of math homework.
Both guys were far from tough physically, but both were extremely gifted academically.
