    Pros

    Great job opportunities if you pick and qualify for the right job.
    Education is paid for.
    Live in Europe.

    Cons

    The Army has to be the worst organization in the world. Don't get me wrong, there are opportunities if you go after them. But, the majority of the people I've met will try to stop you if it doesn't benefit them. The Army doesn't care you or the well being of your family. I can not believe the amount of selfish arrogant people I have ran into. I joined to serve my country. I never intended on making a career. If I did, I would have become an offier. Do not enlist unless you have to. If you have a family this is not the place. Join Air Force or Navy. It's a much better life style for you and your family.

    Advice to Management
