There was nothing typical about working in Southwest Asia. The working conditions were more than unusual. I worked out of a tent, and the weather conditions were pretty unbearable with sand storms and heat index of over 140 degrees. But I love working in the administrative and personnel fields. I love knowing that my knowledge helps others and trains others.

Very rewarding career in the Navy. Intense at times but always a learning experience which I enjoyed the most. Constantly training. Never a dull moment.
Pros
Protecting Our Country From Foreign And Domestic Threats

Being away from the family. The culture shock and the elements of the weather in Kuwait

I spent 8 years in the Navy and one year on deployment. I value the time in that I spent and I do not regret it at all. My time in the Navy gave me valuable experiences and I have met people that will be lifetime friends.
Pros
Go to new places, job training, meet people from all walks of life
Cons
time away from family
