life changing experinece
Fire Support Specialist (13F) (Former Employee), Ft RileyAugust 27, 2015
Pros: Free Meals breakfast lunch and dinner. Free medical and Dental
Cons: No freedom and your always working. You could get killed on job.
It will change your life and the way you see things. You will create bonds with people strangers and they will become like family. Get to operate machines you only get to see in movies. Go on adventures its seriously like playing cops and robbers for a living.

They build confidence and team work
Environmental Health Specialist (Former Employee), Fort Sill, OKAugust 27, 2015
Pros: A person will learn to strive for the best
Cons: The person must have the desire and motivation to work in a diverse environment, treat people with respect.
The Army was the best thing that happen to me. I learn a lot about myself and what I was able to do. I go want a lot of respect from peers. The Army invested in their soldiers that want to achieve. I was – more... surrounded by many cultures, and learn to appreciate who they are and how to get them to work with me as a team. We learn to trust each other and working as a team was very easy. I had a chance to visit Korea, Alaska doing my stay in the Army. I visit other bases that help me deal with change and understand that although each base has the same goal but different in rules.
I learn to treat people the way they want to be treated, do my best no matter where I go and most of all do what is right.. – less

EAMC-Great
Surgical Technician (Former Employee), Fort Gordon, GAAugust 27, 2015
I enjoyed EAMC.I did 2 years as a CS Technician where I learned to process and sterilize instruments and supplies.I was NCOIC for a while which ,means I was in charge.It was but a stepping stone to a better career outside of the military or so I thought,However I re-enlisted several times and stayed for 13 years.Id always recommend this way of starting.Earn as you learn...!

In order to grow, one must place themselves in challenging situations where they are forced to grow.
Seargeant (Current Employee), United StatesAugust 27, 2015
The more experiences a person has the more opportunity there is for a person to learn themselves. The Army is full of them. My favorite thing about the Army is that it is a congregation of all walks of – more... life where one learns everyone has something in common. Due to the uniformity and close proximity of others at all times people take the time to look past physical differences and stereotypes. Whereas, it is highly improbable that a gothic dresser decked out in all black and leather and a preppy sports player would ever get to know each other outside of the United States Army organization. – less
