    Pros

    I've meet some of the best people when I served in the Army. I jumped out of planes, shot guns, drank and partied like a rock star. There are ton of four day weekends. We would head to the beach all the time. Be careful of the partying or could develop a drinking problem. The PT was pretty intense. We ran a ton but I was in great shape. Everybody has different experiences with the service. talk to as many people as possible.

    Cons

    There are some downsides. I also met some of the worst people while I was in the Army. Theres alot of egomaniacs in the military. Everybody walks around with a chip on their shoulder. I would have people stare the sh*t out of me just walking down the street. I had NCO's bust my chops just because they could, not because I did anything wrong. Theres a lot of dudes that didn't have anything going for them in life that decided they would join the Army. Theres a ton of politics. If you get a dummy as a your squad leader, youre screwed. I had some dummys for NCO's. The camaraderie really lied with the joes (E-1 thru E-4's). Those were the guys I hung out and lived with. I still talk to some of them to this day. And I got out back in 2004. The NCO's let the rank go to the their head.
