    Pros

    Take advantage of opportunities for self-development with tuition assistance. Able to transfer education benefits to family members. Excellent heath benefits as well.

    Advice to Management

    Senior Commander and Command Sergeant Majors need to truly believe in Mission Command, by letting their Battery Commanders and First Sergeants execute their task/missions appropriately without constantly having 2-3 hour weekly meetings.

    Deployments. Deployments are a big factor to consider because attorneys in the army do deploy. Also, the medical care is mediocre
