Army Career
Light Wheeled Vehicle Mechanic (Former Employee), Fort Lee, VAApril 20, 2015
I have learned a lot of valuable skills while serving in the United States Army. I enjoyed the time I served (14 years), I have been on four tours down range. I have met some great people while serving in the military. I also have had the pleasure of traveling to a lot of places. It was a great experience! I enjoyed my job as a Quartermaster and Chemical Repairer, and cross trained into a light wheel mechanic. I recently been honorably discharged from the Army, and I'am currently working on my new career.

Formation and physical fitness
Chemical Operations Specialist (Former Employee), Fort Stewart, GAApril 20, 2015
Pros: Garanteed pay with benefits
Cons: Deployment, weekend and overnight duty, training away from home
Formation for physical fitness, Inventory equipment, provide maintenance on vehicles, sit around the motor pool for further instruction. The hardest part of this job was watching higher ranking people consistently get away with harassing and deliberately trying to destroy the lively of lower enlisted people simple because they had the power to do so. The hardest part of the job was being away from my family for long periods of time without receiving any overtime pay. Most enjoyable part of this job was having three and four day weekends off work.

Military Police (Current Employee), Huntsville, TXApril 19, 2015
The Military Police is exactly like civilian law enforcement, but un like the civilian law enforcement we live by a triple standard. We not only have to be upheld with the responsibility as Police, but as professional soldiers and be expected to act as such during our off duty time. This is what it means to be Military Police.
