    I worked at US Air Force full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    There are lots of opportunities to gain experience in different environments with diverse people. Great Healthcare, dental, and financial benefits. Opportunity to gain a unique skill set. High value on physical fitness.

    Cons

    You support the murder of people, some bad but also innocentv people including women and children. You lose autonomy from how and where you choose to live. You contribute to massive use of resources. There is an increased chance that your familial relationships will be strained. You're subject to an entirely different justice system (UCMJ). Toxic masculine culture, alcohol abusive culture, and class disparity based on your rank. There also is a chance that you'll die or be injured physically and or mentally.

    Gain experiences most civilians will never be able to experience. Have fun and explore the world.

    Base pay is nowhere near the amount of the private sector, but housing and food allowances definitely make up for it. May require a lot of overtime with no pay, but you knew that already.
