There is nothing better than serving your country
INFANTRYMAN (Former Employee) – Fort Knox, KY 40122 – November 2, 2016
Typical work day is training and weapons cleaning. Early wake ups and a lot of physical training.
You learn how to react under pressure, find and control confidence in yourself and as a team. Learn to be a leader and take responsible and sensible actions in every aspect of life.
Management is always changing and is always training to better you and the betterment of their fellow brethren
Compensation is not good, for the risks involved the military needs to have better wages. The health benefits, retirement, and overall value of holding the title of veteran can not be topped.
Your co-workers will become your family, and just like your family there are some you love and some you really dont like, but you will always take care of them and they you.
Hardest part of the job would be those long cold nights and early mornings. Sometimes no more than 2 hours of sleep before another long day. But that is what it means to serve, taking that sacrifice and serving the Americans you love.
Every part of that job was enjoyable, from the OC lanes (pepperspray) to the firing ranges, to going to theater . I love our military.
