Friendly tip for Soldiers:
Get a P.O. Box
This has made my life easier for DECADES. Everywhere we get stationed, I get a PO Box - forward my old PO Box to the new one and gradually update the address on all my bill accounts.
That way, whether you stay on Post or off post, your mailing address doesn’t change!
This has proved to be REALLY CONVENIENT while back on a post.
Gate Open/Close times.
On-post events & announcements.
Updated info on EVERY SINGLE SERVICE on post.
Also, one of the more important features is a "HOTLINES" button that has the important "helping my soldiers out" numbers.
If anything, download it for that. Hope it helps!
The Digital Garrison mobile app is a one-stop shop for all installation information. It’s user-friendly, customizable and free. What are you waiting for? Download the app today!

Would you voluntarily go through that training?

When recruiting Prior Service applicants (those with 1 or more days in the service)...we have to play by DIFFERENT rules.
When coming back into service, from the Army/Navy/Marines/Air Force/Guard/etc...
Do you keep your same rank?
Do you need to go through MEPS again?
Do you keep your old MOS or get a new one?
Do you have the same options as when you first enlisted?
If you are a Veteran and want to come back into the Army...
...Do you have to go through basic training again?
This video answers that in less than 5 minutes.
Share it with someone that wants to know. Tag someone that may need to know.

Family Housing on base.
My wife and kids LOVED it. Unfortunately, being a recruiter in the Dallas-Fort Worth area of Texas - there isn't a base near me.
No rent due. No electricity bills. No Lawn maintenance costs. No water bills. I think I may make myself cry.
Here's an example of on-base housing:
Hear from a young military family about their experience living on base and how they value family-friendly conveniences, comfortable amenities and a social n...
We all start serving for various individual reasons.
We keep serving for various individual reasons.
At the end of it all - we know we served TOGETHER.
That's why you'll see two Veterans, generations apart, come together in brother/sisterhood - like they've known each other their entire lives.
It's a beautiful thing to experience.

The GREATEST GENERATION.
It's the middle of World War 2. Everyone's scared.
You are 18, 19, 20 - not even old enough to drink.
Maybe you've just graduated high school. Maybe you had just started your first year of college. Maybe you volunteered or maybe you got drafted.
You definitely DO NOT care what color of skin your buddy has or where they were born or what political affiliation they preferred.
You are one of the 156,000 American, British and Canadian troops about to storm a 50-mile stretch of HEAVILY FORTIFIED beach coast of the Normandy region of France.
It's the largest amphibious assault in American history.
Over 2,000 American casualties and countless more MIA.
Average life expectancy: less than 30 seconds.
As your amphibious assault vehicle approaches the beach, you begin to hear the clinking of enemy rounds hitting your boat. All that protects you at that moment is a ramp that will drop any minute now - so you can jump into chest deep water - and swim to the beach front.
Assuming you made it to the beach...
Average life expectancy: less than 2 minutes.
Still. They went. Still. They fought. Still. The GREATEST GENERATION.
God Bless them. God Bless them all.
