Pros: greatest experience in life
Cons: being away
Going into the military will make any one grow upand appreciate life. Will teach great work ethics. Gives you great benifits. Only thing bad about the military is the mental toughness you need to last. You will be teased, picked on, yelled at, praised, rewarded daily, which can take an emotion effect on you. I had a set schedual every day once I set foot into boot camp. I did my job, worked out, sleep, go on watch, and back to work. I would some times have to be on watch hours on 6 off, plus work 8-10 hrs in the shop. I've done numerous jobs in my 5 years, from putting in light bulbs, to turning the light switch on, to owning my own tool shop, to saving the ship thousands of dollars when I fixed a breaker that was not replaceable. I got to grow up and learn how to be a man and work correctly by myself and as a team. I got to be a Leader of my own shop. I had co-workers under me that I managed. I got to save lives during war time in Lebanon.
