Not everyone can be a Marine
Avionics Comm/Nav Technician (Former Employee) – World Wide Service. – October 18, 2018
It's been a while since I retired, so any review of my time on active duty is based on memories close to twenty years old.
A typical day at work included time for physical training, time to clean off the awaiting maintenance board, and conducting training (rifle range, pistol range, swim qual, gas chamber, etc).
The hardest part of the job after boot camp is being away from your family for months at a time on deployment. The most satisfying was completing a mission (be it fixing equipment or launching air strikes in support of combat operations).
Decent medical benefits, opportunities to travel, educational benefits, varying duties and duty stations.
Time away from the family.
