Those are but a few. Plus, when you retire there are a plethora of additional benefits. It also goes without saying that serving in any branch of the military is a very honorable thing to do.

92F Petroleum Supply Specialist (Former Employee) – Ft. Hood, TX – January 26, 2017
Active Duty literally just depends on when you get stationed. I got put in Ft. Hood, TX. Not the best place, especially if it's your first duty station. My job wasn't hard at all, but the leadership here in my opinion is below par. Most of your fellow soldiers (which everyone is) are pretty good people, but there are people that have gotten to a certain rank, that may have forgotten what it means to have been a lower ranked soldier. Which often times can be a problem.
But I liked it and wish I could have done it longer. It just wasn't meant to be for me.
Paid leave, Early release on Thursday. MANY benefts
Last minute notice stuff, 24 hour availability at all times day or night

Job security and opportunities for education and promotions. Lots of travel, short and long trips, so you will spend some time away from home.
Great pay with benefits, and a lot of days off.
Deployments to other countries in support of missions.
Every person has limits. You either are a lemon or you make lemonade. "Adapt and Overcome" is the model I use and have used, to train my soldiers. I enjoyed my career (36 years). Every unit has its quirks and maintaining morale in a terrible situation separates men from boys. I am a certified Small Group Instructor and I really enjoy being an instructor and a mentor.
Member Services Representative (Current Employee) – Baumholder, DE – February 2, 2017
A regular day at work consists of encountering multiple patients, helping with medical records, insurance forms, and uploading information electronically. Helping other ancillary sections out like laboratory with checking in patients, handling blood/urine. I've learned that you cannot please every patient but try to the best of your ability to help them out. Which is more so the hardest part of the job because you want to make every patient content with their visit.
