Favorite thing about working for the Army: Meeting new wonderful people who have helped our country in one way or another

What made you want to work for the Army: By working for the Army, I feel as if I've opened myself up to a whole new world of opportunities. Every day, I meet new and wonderful people and learn many new things. When I first applied for this job, I was simply looking for a "big girl" job, now it is so much more than that. I have had such an open mind about all the possible careers out there because of all the job series the government provides. Now my reason for working for the Army is no longer what it was before. I work for the Army now because I know one day I can make a difference like the rest of the people I've met.
