When you embark on an Army career, you become a soldier. For the rest of your life, you are a soldier, a person who supports and sacrifices for your country, and a respected veteran. You become part of a much larger group of people who have earned the same respect by serving their country. Joining the Army will improve your life in several ways. Three of those important improvements are:
1. Nothing teaches you self-sufficiency like joining the Army or any branch of the military. There simply is no equal when it comes to learning how to be a survivor, and to rely on your mental and physical strengths and the strengths of the people on your team.
2. There’s also no other way to learn true teamwork. You can do corporate team-building exercises for weeks on end, but when you rely on your team to protect your welfare and your life, you understand what it means to be part of that team.
3. You’ll understand what it’s like to be part of something truly bigger and more important than yourself. While you’ll learn teamwork, being part of the military is unlike any other club, team, membership or family you’ll ever know.
