Pros: benefits, exercises, discipline, uniformity, service to my country.
Cons: being away from home.
In order for me to be in the Army National Guard I was required to lose weight. I dropped the weight within the given time which was 45 days. I lost 30 pounds. Then once I was processed, I was sent to Ft. Jackson, SC to conduct Basic Combat Training. OCT. 2012- Jan. 2013. I graduated from there and proceeded to my next phase of training which was located – more... at Ft. Leonard Wood, MO. Jan.2013-March 2013. I graduated from their and now I am back home. I will drill with my Unit in UC, TN. Once a weekend every month. So far, I have enjoyed my time in service and look forward to serving my country. – less
