    Pros

    I have learned many different skills along with my main focus as a rotary wing mechanic. The Army offers the most diverse population of people to work with as a team and a family. Great benefits include medical, education, vacation and on the job training. Career advancement is self-paced. The opportunity to learn and grow as a Soldier and a person has been a great experience for me.

    Cons

    I have no cons. A career in the Army is what you make of it. You are a Soldier 24-7 and expected to work and act like a professional at all times. For some this may be a con. However, I found it to be a pro!

    Advice to Management

    Keep leading the troops in the right direction to ensure a professional Soldier who is skilled, knowledgeable and talented in all aspects of being an Army professional.
