Served 24 years. Met some of the best people in the world. Granted the army doesn’t value your time. Meaning you can sit for hours not doing anything and not able to go home. There are good leaders out there but they more bad. I always challenged my soldiers to take care of the juniors and not to waste people time.

Pros and Cons
Retirement perks, school, training and medical.
Toxic leaders. Pay doesn’t add up to hours spent at work.

I started working for the Army Department of Defense as an intern. The internship was 2 years and then I continued working for them for an additional 7 years. The benefits and pay are great. The work environment was usually friendly and cooperative. Helping soldiers with equipment readiness was rewarding.

I spent 3 years in the infantry and 17 years in Special Forces (Green Beret). Special Forces has been a fantastic career choice with unwavering support from peers through superiors. There are long days and times when you are away from family, however it balances out because you also get a lot of time off. There are over 200 jobs in the Army alone, so if you seek this profession, understand what your signing up for!

Pros and Cons
Cool training you would have to pay a lot of money to do as a civilian.
The military has a lot of dumb rules everybody, even Special Forces, has to follow.

I think starting out so young. Having no direction in life. The military gave me direction. It helped me to grow and mature into the woman that I am. After thirty-three years, I decided to retire and enjoy the rest of my life. No one said it would be easy, and at certain times, you may want to give up. But once you get over that initial thought, then you get to the place you need to be.

Great platform for unknown personnel That value being something other than nothing. It provides something that your family and friends are proud of as well. Hard work, hazing if you’re weak minded, but makes you strong and allows you to have a positive look at life as well. No it’s not beneficial the first few years, after 3-5 years it can be a career and 10 years it can be financially stable. Retirement was good before changes so not worth it anymore. However you get a four years of free college after initial enlistment that may be worth it as well.

Pros and Cons
allows you to see who you are, your strengths and weaknesses and makes you decide what you want.
I free time, always want to make up for lost time, family issues due to being home, money is hard

Tested me as a human/person/creature; I failed to keep up and the experience broke me. I served during wartime; my service was complicated and was eventually medically discharged. To succeed at a job like this, the employee must be 100% committed, serious and ok with being alone (in my hindsight view).

Pros and Cons
Travel. Fitness. Well taken care of. Be and Do [achievement] culture.
Extremely dangerous work.

Of course, we help the trainers with their classes on a daily basis. Furthermore we have also done de-processing the MSFV included to be done Maintenance services for Afghan National Army.

While I was in the Army, though it was tough, I had the opportunity to get on the Culinary Arts team and I won 1st, 2nd, and Best of show. This brought me to Ft. Lee Virginia, Army wide competition and I received honorable mention. If you apply yourself you can do anything you desire in life.

Pros and Cons
Work ethic, training, teamwork, overcome and enduring
Hot sun in the desert, long hours, some MREs that don't taste good
