    Pros

    Stellar people, committed to their jobs. Always a helping hand. Personally, it was fulfilling knowing that even the most mundane tasks were vital to the mission.

    Cons

    Those that are not current/prior military will experience a steep learning curve in terms of culture and language. But it's not insurmountable.
