Military life can be great, if it's right for you.
Section Supervisor (Current Employee) – Charlottesville, VA – January 18, 2017
As of Aug 2017 I will have retired from the U.S. Air Force after serving 20 years. I joined straight out of high school so this is the only adult life I've known, but I would do it again if I had the chance. However, I have a deep sense of duty, so taking orders and working as part of a team came naturally to me. I would recommend the military to anyone, but be sure you're there for the right reasons. There are good benefits even for those that don't stay until retirement. However, I would caution making a career of it unless you have that sense of duty, patriotism, or drive to serve your country. The military life isn't easy, but it can bring an amazing sense of accomplishment, for you and your fellow military members.
