Military Workers, Officers

Work Environment

The work environment for military officers depends on the branch of service they are in and their specific job. For example, an officer serving on a submarine will spend months living in extremely close quarters at sea. A health care officer working at a military hospital will spend days and/or nights working at a health care facility. Military officers serving on international peacekeeping forces may work in the tense atmosphere of a fragile truce between two bitter enemies. No matter what the job, however, strict discipline and adherence to regulations are required in all branches of the military. Most active-duty officers and personnel live on or near military bases in the United States and around the world. They are provided with housing and amenities such as stores and recreation centers.
