The first thing you will do in any military branch is training. Your instructor will teach you how to physically and mentally push yourself to improve your stamina, strength, and mental toughness. Then you will learn how to work with a team. This starts with sharing resources and grows to maneuvering in sync with your peers. In the Army it is imperative that you work as a team. At first you will learn how to work with a small team. You will then be challenged in your specialty using your new physical strength, mental toughness, and teamwork. In your specific case it looks like you will be training in marine biology. Your specialty training will go on for months as you become an expert in your specific job if enlisted. Your training will go on for years if you are becoming an officer. Training in the military is very hands on and that makes it fun and interesting!
