Katelyn’s Answer

Absolutely! It is great to have on your resume, companies love hiring people with military experience. You can also make a career in the military and step up in the ranks. The pay starts kinda low but you get so much paid for by the military and it offers great benefits. I have a family member in the military and he is able to put almost all his paycheck into saving because his cost of living is so low. Being in the military is hard, you are away from your family and in stressful situations. But, it really matures people and teaches them valuable life lessons.

Marie, it's really about perspective. The Army can be good depending on your friend's goals and what this person is trying to get out of it. I joined the Army after high school, primarily, to get away from home to establish myself as independent and to get some work experiences. I knew that the Army would also be a good way to get a college degree and travel. Once I got through my advanced training, I jotted down everything I wanted to achieve during my time on active duty. At the end of my 10 years of services, I had accomplished everything on my list, met some interesting people, and lived in some interesting places.

Marie, yes joining the army is not just a good experience, but a great one for anyone as they leave high school. The army or any military organization can provide a foundation for someone for the rest of their life. It can teach discipline, toughness, organization, leadership and physical fitness that will carry someone far beyond their years of service. After joining full time, individuals can also serve part time in the National Guard or reserves if they want to follow a different career path. The army also gives individuals a chance to see the world, work with people in other cultures and develop life long bonds with their fellow soldiers. I went through some tough times in life but the US Army set me on the path to become a successful person and professional. It also looks good on a resume and for your professional career.

Samuel’s Answer

Greetings, Marie! Although I myself am not in the military currently, nor aspiring to join, allow me to say with the utmost certainty that joining the military is another gateway to a myriad of new opportunities. Aside from actual combat, the military offers a a broad spectrum of a variety of specific skills and roles you can contribute. Examples include combat medic, technical engineer, logistics, etc. However, all these roles still contribute towards maximizing combat effectiveness. Therefore, any aspiring new recruit must possess that inner commitment when entering into military service.

That is all the advice I have for you, Marie. I hope this helps! Stay safe and strong! And good luck!
