Best team on the planet. Engineers- lead the way
Pros: Three hots and a cot. Blackhawk rides, C-130 spiral to the tarmac, M-4, 50 cal, awesome chow, great friends.
Cons: Trying to get approved for leave, being far from family when they need you.
There is no typical work day. Every day has new challenges, some mundane, some extremely difficult. The variety of tasks, the diversity of people, the sense of accomplishment, and that feeling of "I'm doing something bigger then myself" is a wonderful feeling that you get frequently. Opportunities abound and your efforts will be recognized. Some of the challenges are the tasks you face, peer related, or they have to do with the conditions you find yourself in. Each soldier finds his or her own way to overcome obstacles using the tools the Army gives you. Quite an impressive tool kit.
If you don't think you have personal courage or strength, they will help you find it and turn you into a better version of yourself.
