Pros: discipline, motivation, helping others, leadership, family away from family
Cons: takes time away from family and friends.
The structure of the military, not a 9-5, in or out of uniform you are a soldier, a representation of our country. The hardest part is the challenge, but it is also what I love about being in the service. No one day is the same. It's a team effort, everyone has to work equally hard, regardless of the description/job title/rank.
