Once you're out, the benefits look almost as good as they did before you went in. But when you were in, how easy was it to actually get any of the good things you were due?

The Army isn't set up for your benefit- even the units that exist for your benefit aren't set up for that: I've got a picture from 2005 of the door to Finance's trailer at our base. It said "Closed Today- Happy New Year!" To the slugs actually working it wasn't a holiday, it was just another day on the duty roster. If that was when they had half a down day and could get to Finance, they were SOL- those guys were on a pass in Kuwait. Probably telling stories about how tough it was up north.

It was a lot of fun, but it's over. Unless you're seriously considering going back in, it was the right decision.
