Pros

I felt the best reasons to be in the US Army were College Money, Opportunities to Travel, and Experiences working in Groups. I successfully used all of my allotted college money already. When I was still in the Army I was stationed in Germany. This provided me a great opportunity to visit many different countries which was a great learning experience. I definitely think I learned more traveling than I would have if I had taken the traditional route through college. Lastly the Army provided a unique environment to work with people from different place and backgrounds.

Cons

Getting Exploited by the Government, Constant Lies from Management, Anti-Intellectual Environment,

    Pros

    Free clothes. Training. It's not just a job, it's a misadventure.

    Cons

    Wearing the same clothes every day. Going through all of the training and having it wasted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pull your head out. I had some crappy squad leaders. There are some good people in the Army, but they are rarely in positions of power.

    Pros

    Patriotic Duty, Depending on your Skill or MOS good training. You will make friends that will last you a lifetime.

    Cons

    I had the best job in the Army which was CH-47 Helicopter pilot. The single best day was when I got a DD214 that said Honorable Discharge. I was so happy to take off that uniform. I promissed myself that I will never again place myself into a postion that places someone dumber than I am in charge of my life. My commander attempted to kill me no less than 3 times because he was an idiot.

    I would not recommend anyone joining until they start caring for soldiers a little better.. The promise of school money is not worth the aggrivation. It is better to take on some debt and be free of these monkeys. I promise. If they really need you.... They will call you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of the enlisted folks
