Pros: health care benifits, promotions, annual raises, retirement plans, job security
Cons: supervisers, control over entire life, harrasment
A typical day in the states started off with a hour and a half of physical training. We all would get released for breakfast and that took up to an hour. If our supervisors could make it happen, all of our breaks for breakfast, and lunch was an hour a piece. Lunch usually happened mid day sometime around noon. After breakfast, you were then expected to be in the appropriate uniform for the daily duties that were taken place. Once you were where you needed to be, on time, and in the appropriate attire. You're supervisors would check to make sure you had pen and paper, ID card, ID tags, your everyday tools that you needed as a soldier in garrison. Once everyone was taken care of, we then proceeded with the daily work load. Maintenance for vehicles, police calls, weapons training, equipment training, maneuver training, clearing rooms, just classes on how to properly handle combat situations. As a supervisor, I taught my soldiers these classes and skills that I picked up through training and experience. We always made sure everyone was on the same page and if you weren't then we policed you up making sure at the end of the day you were making progress. Then it usually stayed on course like this handling different task throughout the day giving by higher supervisors. Work task or training was our two options throughout our days until we go on actual missions over seas. Up until then, it was supervisors training lower enlisted, taking care of the extra work as needed. Managed by higher supervisors, that managed them, all the way up to our president. I apologize if I have been vague with our "Typical day at work", but if you know anything about the armed forces, you know we have so many different things to handle on a daily. As a soldier it's hard describing our over all duties, because we handle everything ourselves. Our jeeps needed repaired, we had to work on them. If our men got wounded, we fixed them. I don't really know how to explain that, so I apologize.
