Pros

Great opportunity to make money for college. You will also make some of the best friends you will ever have. While pay is not great, the benefits are awesome.

Cons

Job security is not what it once was. With the wars coming to a close, the Army is facing some fairly stiff budget cuts, and subsequent downsizing. The Army is also examining changes to the retirement system. If you take a job in combat arms, don't expect to see your family as much, you will be in the field training a lot.
