Pros: travel, education, medical benefits, advancement opportunity
Cons: long hours and there is no overtime.
The US Military is one of the greatest places to work, full of growth potential, support and leadership from people of all walks of life that have made a solemn pledge to serve this country, protect it anywhere and at anytime. It is in many ways a brotherhood/sisterhood and a family that understands the importance of taking care of each other. I was privileged to serve along side some of the most dedicated, patriotic men and women this country has to offer; and because of this it was an education that I consider to be priceless. My day began early and finished late. I learned that there is nothing impossible if your willing to embrace the attributes required to get just about any job accomplished with excellence. I have the utmost respect for my leadership because they give of themselves to those who work for them, and are willing to be their support whenever it is needed. It is highly competitive, but competition make all of us stronger. The hardest part of the job is ensuring that you don't become one dimensional and that you know how to shake things up when necessary, and create for yourself a balance between work and home life. I love to travel, and that's just what I did.
