I'm 20 years old in the United States Air Force. I work out every morning, eat somewhat healthy due to not being able to select what I eat. I do have a flat stomach but my love handles WONT GO AWAY! I just want to lose them...
I'm going to Hawaii soon and want to look my best out on the beach. If I could lose some inches in the waist and cut the "love handles" off that would be fantastic.
If anyone could help me with supplement use, workouts, what to eat and when. I just need the initial help. Thank you ahead of time!

If your avi pix is some what near your current self and your trip is 3 months away, I say its possible to drop enough weight to show abs.
If your diet and lifting routine in check, like a poster suggested, try out HIIT.
HIIT For NOOBS
FYI -> You cannot stop reduce a spot on your body, only overall weight loss and love handles are last.

I appreciate all of the replies... Just wondering if doing some sort of circuit training would keep my heart rate up enough to lose some weight while keeping the body building up because running for long distances isn't good for me. I've been having problems with my knee for quite some time and just got an MRI done on it. So any alternatives? or am I just screwed? lol

The fact of the matter is you can't spot reduce fat, you just can't. Like myself, your body likes to store the majority of your excess fat in the love handle areas. Well, like everyone else has said the absolute only way to get rid of them is to reduce overall bodyfat. If you are ruling out any possibility of dietary change, then the only thing you really can do is increase your overall daily caloric expenditure.
If you aren't training with weights, start! The is what is gonna make you look great in the long run.
Basically, you're weight loss concentration work flow should look like:
