Industries & Professions /
Military life is extremely regimented. Service members are not
always able to choose their assignments, places of work, or homes.
Their responsibility is to serve the country and the military unit,
so the needs of the country and the service come first. The modern
services try hard to give members what they want; a good worker
gets special consideration for the same reason a civilian employer
rewards a top employee. But most service members at some time will,
for example, work on the East Coast when they would rather be on
the West Coast, go to sea when they would rather stay home, live in
a house or barracks on the base when they would rather have an
apartment in town, or serve a year in a post abroad when they would
rather be with their families.
