15 Things I Love About the Army


  1. Travel
  2. Free medical & dental care
  3. Free housing & utilities
  4. College money/Tuition assistance (if you ever get a chance to use it…)
  5. TDY – you get to travel all over Europe and the States, learn some good stuff, and the Government pays for it all. I’m all about it.
  6. PT (physical training) – as far as I’m concerned, it’s the best part of the Army.
  7. Easy to get promoted – in fact, in some cases, you don’t have to know a single thing about your job to get promoted!
  8. Aerodynamic haircuts
  9. If you don’t like someone you work with, just wait and one of you will be leaving soon…
  10. Cool sayings when you salute an officer, such as “Shoot ‘em in the face Sir”
  11. A decent library. OK, it’s not the Library of Congress, but our library is pretty good. There’s an excellent selection of books, DVDs, and movies that you can take out free (best word in the English language). And there’s also a free internet point. For someone like me – who used to spend 4 to 5 hours at a time in Barnes and Noble – it’s a welcome respite from the daily grind.
  12. Free use of a pretty well equipped fitness center
  13. 30 days paid leave each year
  14. Guaranteed paycheck
  15. $1.60 Southern/Trucker style breakfasts at the DFAC
