A typical day at work is being awakened by your Sergeant Major who yells at you to get up and get going,
Then it proceeds with showering, basic hygiene and then followed by hot breakfast.
If staying in the field, then food is catered and is usually gross army food but on the cold days anything tasted like a 5* restaurant
I managed a small group of soldiers, and worked with them through various engineering tasks, for example cutting C4 explosives, formulating proper calculations for breaching doors, searching for IED's and other detonators.
The days typically start early and end late at night
The hardest part of the job is not giving up when pressure is involved
The most enjoyable part of the job is overcoming the hard times and then laughing about them with snacks and beers to celebrate the victorious accomplishment of finishing the tasking, course or the mission at hand
