    StarStarStarStarStar Current Crna in Bethesda, Maryland

    Best is retirement plan after 20 years of service. Competitive salary to civilian. Worst is having to deploy and leave family but better only for 4.5 months. Best healthcare you and entire family.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current 25W in Fort Huachuca, Arizona

    Sooooooo many benefits! Trust me, you don’t realize how much you take for granted until you realize how much the military truly does for you. From housing allowances (may not be much sometimes, but who else pays your rent?), bonuses (if you qualify) for re-enlisting, free medical for you and your fam, free dental for you.. college opportunities.. I can keep going. It’s all up to you to take advantage. If you put your time and effort, you can achieve it. If you spend your time getting drunk and partying, don’t blame the military for your inability to move up in rank. You can balance both of them and live a good life. After 20 yrs, I can say that it hasn’t been easy, but I do believe it was all wort it.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Supply Chain in Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania

    Plenty of traveling which at first i enjoyed. The pay wasn't the greatest butt it was,enough to make it live properly. They people were supportive for the most part. Just the opportunity to learn in your field was also exciting.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former 35N in Aurora, Colorado

    30 days paid time off, $400,000 life insurance, GI Bill which covers tuition, books, other fees and a nice housing allowance. Also, free healthcare, can't beat that.

    Pay is great but hours can be horrendous.

    Medical and housing are definitely a plus. Medical sometimes felt less than on par with civilian medical.
