Not everyone could tolerate military life, there were times I wanted to go home. I enjoyed my time in the Army for the most part. I hated Physical Training (PT), I didn't like guard duty, or Charge of Quarters (CQ). I didn't like going "down range" as they called it at Fort Carson Colorado. All of the other stations called it going to the field. This is when you simulate being in combat, I'll never go camping, I still have nightmares.
The military is a great choice for the benefits, training, and leadership qualities that you will learn. Each duty station was quite different, I had a desk job, records clerk. Pencil pusher, or "chair borne rangers" that what we called ourselves at Fort Bragg, NC. Its home to the 18th Airborne Corps and 82nd Airborne.
If you are one of those people that don't like following orders or don't like others telling you what to do, this is not the place for you.
