My husband wants to join the Air Force but filed for bankruptcy last year. Would he still be able to join?

He may be able to get a waiver to join, but he can't hold a security clearance -- which means he can't hold any job that requires one. There are mighty few of those and they aren't the gee-whiz jobs that people join the military to do. It is possible to get waivers to enlist. The requirement to hold a clearance for a given job cannot be waived. If the job requires a clearance, you have to hold that or you can't have the job. Period. He can't hold a clearance and therefore any job that requires one.
So while he may be able to join, he may not WANT to anymore. Not many folks want to spend their career emptying garbage cans (...except for the ones in the intel shop. Can't go in there. No clearance. See the problem?). He's going to want to have a serious talk with his recruiter about what jobs will be open to him. There will be a handful at best and he's not likely to be interested in them.

He should be able to if he did not revert to his habit of spending more money than he earns.

Joining the military DOES NOT get you out of debt. Any financial obligations you may have when entering the service still have to be met, and failure to meet financial obligations CAN be grounds for punishment or discharge from the service.

all depends.......the military does NOT allow people to join, to escape legal or finanical debts .
Your legal affairs have to be in order first.

Unlikely. The AF does a financial suitability review on all recruits.
