Don't panic, Shia LaBeouf is NOT joining the Air Force. ...his recent visit to a recruiter's office was just prep work for a new role he's eyeing. TMZ reports his trip to the USAF office in L.A. Saturday wasn't a whacky publicity stunt -- he's really trying to learn about the enlisting process -- from recruitment through basic training. LaBeouf hasn't locked down the potential role yet ... he's just doing his homework. Unfortunately for Shia, the office was closed.
