Infatryman (Current Employee), Waynesburg, PAApril 16, 2014
Pros: benefits, rewarding, great experience
Cons: not enough training
The army national guard has been nothing but an enjoyable experience this far. A typical weekend at drill is random, my chain of command are all great leaders and want each of their soldiers to be successful. My co-workers are like brothers we all look out for one another. The hardest part of the job is not receiving enough training. The most enjoyable – more... part of the job is knowing that I do what most people dream of, and I am apart of America's primary defense. Also knowing that i will possibly save a live one day amazes me. – less

Infantryman (Current Employee), Shreveport, LAApril 15, 2014
Pros: brotherly bonds
Cons: fighting in our time of comradery
A typical day at work is always at work's peak. I learned how to maintain focus, and a clear conscience. To be selfless and mindful of my peers to my left and right. The management is awesome. My chain of command is very professional and in contact with the lower enlisted. The hardest part of the day is the down part of the day. In the infantry, down – more... time is just time to sit and talk and play games. I believe in hard work from clock in to clock out. The most enjoyable part of the job is being with my Battle buddies and having an understanding that we all want to go home at the end of the day. We all have families and understand that we are all one big family. To be able to enjoy the people I work with. – less

SPC Aviation Operations Specialist (Current Employee), Grand Ledge, MIApril 14, 2014
Pros: serving my country
Typical day i deal with pilots and their paperwork to make sure they can fly. What ive learned is how to file proper paperwork to make sure the flights are approved, how to track the helicopters, how to talk to the pilots on the radio. The management is great, they train me and help me when needed. The coworkers are great as well, they are there to – more... assist and help keep everything running smooth and have fun at the same time. The hardest part of the job is keeping track of multiple helicopters when you get an adequate amount out flying.

The military has made me what I am today. The work ethic, the discipline have shaped my professional life. Anyone who enlists will have grooming in their vocabulary if it wasn't already, instill, at best, basic exercise habits and encourage a demeanor that reverberates positively.
