Any branch of the military is what you make of it. I made the best of my 24 years of service and was fortunate to have served multiple tours in Germany, Korea, Africa, Panama, & Vietnam. I served stateside in Ak., Ga., Al., Fl., Tx.,
Ms., Ca., NC, and Ky.


The jobs in the Army are not like the Boy Scouts and only a person who never served would say that.

Well I hate to tell you this but I HAVE served. I also grew up around ex military who ALL say the Army of today is nothing but glorified boy scouts compared to the army of Nam and before. That includes Berets, Scout Snipers, Seals, Rangers, Delta, and Force Recon.
