    U.S. Army benefits are fantastic. You get a basic allowance of housing, full healthcare, and special pay if you deploy. The Army truly takes care of its people and these benefits are unlikely to get much worse or go away due to political considerations.

    Ability to retire after 20 years a definite plus.

    Former US Army Officer in Columbia, South Carolina

    The benefits of an active duty career are great. I joined for the education benefits, stayed because of the people and left on my own terms. A 20 year career flew by and I am very thankful to now have a pension that places me above the median income. Now it is time for my next career.
