Maintaining discipline for self and other, motivating, some down time, hard work
Transportation Specialist (Former Employee), Windsor Locks, CTOctober 28, 2014
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.

Pros: teamwork and comradery

I had a great time while I served for the most part, but when it came to getting promoted unless you were in the "cool guy club" you got passed over. It was all about being in the click.

Multitasking and challenging environment
88M Sergeant (E5)-Heavy Motor Transport Operator (Current Employee), Thomasville, GeorgiaOctober 23, 2014
Pros: friends, training, money, rank structure, and benefits.
Cons: time consuming, away from family, food, breaks, and long hours.
Early morning and late nights of relentless training and missions. Learning to excel in my particular field of operations and become more physically and mentally fit for the missions ahead. Maintain vital equipment and junior soldier's well being for mission readiness. The most difficult task is placing the mission first by any means, and completing – more... the mission through any adversity. The most rewarding and wonderful part of duty is the bond and accomplishment our combat team faces, and coming home. – less
