Pros: the feeling of hearing from the troops on the ground, that the weapons we load, saved their lives.
Cons: being away from your family for long periods of time.
My job in the Navy was an Aviation Ordnance. A typical day a work consisted of handing all ammunition, including missiles, fuses, detonators and rockets. We were responsible for the acquisition, safety, storage, buildup, delivery and subsequent loading and unloading of ammunition onto aircraft. I learned the meaning of teamwork. The individuals I worked with were not just my co-workers but my family. We were a brotherhood, always pushing each other for greatness. I learned that in order to become a great leader, you must first be a follower. That the people who have a big Eco' are the ones that never become a leader everyone looks up to. If you have to use power to lead your people, you are never a true leader. I learned that you should be firm but fair. The people you are in charge of should not fear you but want to work for you. The hardest part of the job was going on 9 months deployments, leaving your family behind. The most enjoyable part of my job was knowing I am defending my country.
