Pros: Health Benefits, Time off.

Cons: No life. No sleep.


Wake up early every day. Formation. Work out. Go to the barracks. Change. Be at formation 2 in duty uniform. Work on aircraft until lunch. Then after lunch we would formation 3. Go back to working on things that fly. Work until 5. Formation 4. Then a possible release for duties. Or 24 hour ECP, 24 Hour Staff, or 24 hour CQ duty at the barracks desk. Very life consuming. Not much sleep. But it was worth every second of suffering.
