The army is what you make of it, just like any other job you have in life. If you're interested in joining the army, look at what you want to do for your future and apply that in the army. If you want to be a chef, you can join the army as a cook and then get into the advanced culinary section of the army. If you want to be a lawyer, you can join the army and get into JAG. If you want to become a doctor, join the army as a medic. Make the army work for you if you join and you'll get the right experience, for the right job choice that you want for your future.
