Pros: Comradeship, travel, and administrative support. Good holidays!
Cons: Being placed in the middle of Riots, War and Insurrection
You were on call 24/7. Training was not only encouraged - it was manditory! Skills taught were all encompassing. Survivial, field and battlecraft, parade square, driving, communications, map and compass, typing, management, physical and mental conditioning, et al. Co-workers were the best and the job was diverse; from the mundane to the insane! I wouldn't have traded the experience for anything!
