Indirect Fire Infantryman (Former Employee), Fort Drum,NYMay 29, 2015
Pros: Get to learn so much
Cons: Can lead to some long deployments
In the beginning the Army can be a little intimidating but once you get through basic training its much like a regular job. You are well compensated not so much money but the food, clothing, benefits, and much more. You meet so many great people who would do almost anything for you including give their life. The hardest part was adapting. I would do it all over if had the chance!

I was blessed to have the opportunity to serve my country.
Cannon Crew Member (Former Employee), Fort Carson, COMay 29, 2015
When I was in the Army my day would start at 4:00am. Accountability was conducted by 5:00am then we would get our morning briefing. At 6:00am we would conduct physical training (PT) until 7:30am. After PT we were released to shower, change, and eat breakfast. The work day would start at 9:00am and end at 5:00pm if the mission of the day was completed along with all necessary tasks.

I learned time management skills, leadership skills, equipment maintenance, crew drills and responsibilities as an Artillerymen and as an Infantrymen, tactical driving skills, mounted and dismounted tactics and operations, how to maintain and operate the M119 M109 M198 and M777 Howitzer as well as all small arms and crew served weapons. I was able to become very efficient in planning and problem solving while on the move as well as team work and trust in my team.

My "co-workers" were my squad/section and my platoon/battery. A very divers bunch but we all had a deep respect for each other. Not all of them are alive today but I am very thankful that I was able to serve with such hi caliber personal.

The hardest part of the job were the 12 month deployments. Being in combat and away from your loved ones takes its tool on even the strongest of worriers but if I had to do it all over again I would not hesitate to jump at the opportunity.

To me the most enjoyable part of the job is seeing what we were able to accomplish once the mission or task is done and coming back home to the USA!!

section chief (Current Employee), Fort Polk, LAMay 29, 2015
in the U.S. Army, you're tasked with upholding the Constitution and protecting America's freedoms. But it's not always work — Soldiers have free time just like everyone else to spend with friends and family, or take part in sports or hobbies. Soldiers continually strengthen themselves mentally and physically through Ongoing Training. And most important — Soldiers live the Seven Core Army Values every day.

Staff Sergeant (Former Employee), Ft Polk,LA , Ft Hood, TX, Ft Sill, OK, Korea,May 29, 2015
Pros: friendships built for life, memories, what it made me become
Cons: none
You wake up in the morning at go to pt. You exercise either your upper body or lower body. for a hour to two hours. then you go home get cleaned up, eat breakfast, and report to work. You worked with privates all the way up to generals on a daily basis. you were always learning something whether it was job related or task related or life related. you had each others back! The hardest part of your job was going to war or being away from your love ones if you were overseas. the most important if not enjoyable part of my job was to see my soldiers succeed in life. 3 most important things in any company is unity, moral, and pay.

West Point Cadet
West Point Cadet (Army) (Former Employee), West Point, NYMay 29, 2015
Being a Cadet was a very challenging lifestyle. I was faced daily with a myriad of tasks logistical, clerical, and interpersonal in nature. I learned extensive leadership, computer, scheduling, and personal skills that helped me to become a hard-working, flexible, and adaptive individual capable of facing whatever task put before me. The hardest part of was the hours, for sometimes work could carry on into the early hours of the morning. The most enjoyable part of the job was the satisfaction felt from rising to and accomplishing various challenges.

What I did in the Army.
Supervisor (Former Employee), Ft. Campbell, KyMay 29, 2015
I would wake up every morning at 0500 and lead anywhere between 9 to 20 soldiers in physical fitness. After our work out our day consisted of training with weapons, trucks and movements. I was deployed three times and seen combat in both Iraq and Afghanistan. I was responsible for safely training my Soldiers for the fight ahead of us. I learned how to be a Leader and to manage and supervise. I also learned how rules and safety work and how to apply it.

Legal Clerk (Former Employee), Fort Stewart, GAMay 29, 2015
Pros: Great benefits, Travel, Comradery
Cons: Away from family, long hours
The Army life is very challenging. Being in the Army allowed me to meet new people and travel around the world. However, the daily duties of the job and having a personal life posed a challenge. It was hard being away from my family all of the time and being moved around constantly. However, the rewards outweighed the cons.
