Let's get through the basics. A soldier's daily life is not that different from the life you lead now. You'll still eat the food you normally eat. You'll sleep in a regular bed. You'll shop, worship, maintain and live your daily life pretty much as you do now. There are vets to take care of your pets, chapels and religious buildings, grocery stores, dry cleaners, etc. You name it and it probably exists on or near your Post, no matter where you are. Sure, the names of places have changed, but the game really hasn't. In fact, there are a number of things that might actually be better.
