US Army Reviews
I've spent 7 years so far in the Army and I love what I do! I ca,me into the Army later in life at 22, already married to a Marine Veteran, therefore, I knew what military life was about to be. There are many differences between the branches, but I have to say the Army has sent me to some great places; Texas, South Carolina, Germany, Ohio, Romania, Bulgaria, and Italy. We lively atmosphere and great place to be!
In the Army there are a lot of benefits, an unbeatable benefits package, but the pay is not that great, could be a lot better for the sacrifice we make. Soldiers work too hard for the compensation they receive, and family life is often sacrificed for things that amount to no importance. Life or death is a real player in the Army, and that is to be expected as you have to sign a contract and go through a background check in order to get in. Too much wasted time!
It was a good opportunity to travel and make connections but it also breaks your soul. While the Army provides opportunities, the leadership and lack of enlisted to officer understanding makes it difficult to take advantage of said opportunities. Most newly enlisted aren’t pushed use their education benefits like TA or to develop themselves. NCOs are overloaded with so much work that they barely have time to properly take care of their soldiers. Medical professionals don’t even care most of the time about soldiers health. Most tend to slap ibuprofen on everything and say suck it up buttercup. Overall, it’s a mixture of good and bad experiences. Mostly bad, but the comradeship makes up for some of it.
