Army Life

I'm not sure how to describe the "Army Experience." It's been interesting, no doubt about it. Life changing. At it's best, the military is one of the most goal-oriented organizations on Earth, and at worst a bloated sinkhole for taxpayer dollars. Usually we fall somewhere in between. It's the nature of the beast, though. The military is not meant to be a productive organization. Peace through superior firepower, that's us.

That said, I'm sure you have questions about what it's "really" like. Sometimes, I get questions I can't answer, and there are other questions that I choose not to. The military is not about personal preference - it's a sacrifice for the country, it's a nice paycheck, it's working with some of the best people I've ever met and some some individuals I wouldn't tolerate for ten minutes as a civilian. I won't post any details here about my unit or my friends who are also "in," so I'm afraid I can't rightly answer the question about what it's "really" like. I hope I can provide a good snapshot of life in the army (especially deployment - definitely a unique experience if there ever was one), but snapshots are all I can give.
