I'm strongly considering the Army but what I would really like is some inside opinions. My Mom has been in the Army for 20 years and counting so I'm familiar with the Army lifestyle. Of course, being in the Army is much different from being an Army brat. I am 26 years old female, I have senior level college credit but I took time off because of finances. I am fairly fit and pretty intelligent with a wide range of knowledge. I love a good challenge and I always strive to be the best. I am a know it all but when I don't know something I am ALWAYS willing to learn. I have management experience so I'm comfortable with leading others but I also feel as if I'm missing some assertiveness. I'm great with change and I am extremely loyal. I know my life story isn't required but I need to give a good idea of who I am. Would the Army be a good fit for me? I'm terrified of failure so I don't like to do anything I'm not 100% sure about but I need a change.
