4. Work Ethic and Commitment

One of the things that civilians don’t always appreciate about the military is how serious of a commitment it is.

Once you sign on the dotted line (and make it through training, of course) you’re in for the long haul. There aren’t really a lot of ways out before the end of your enlistment.

Ditto deployments — once you ship out, you’re probably stuck wherever you got sent for a while. Short of going AWOL, there’s nothing anyone can do to change that, which results in a pretty dedicated mindset. Servicemen and servicewomen, in general, are going to take whatever situation they’re given and start working on the goals and objectives as hard as possible. It’s not like they’re going anywhere until the job gets done!

That’s very different from a world where you can leave a job at any time. Some contracts are harder to break than others, but very few people face criminal charges if they decide they’re done with a job and walk away from it. In most cases it’s just a fine.

Once a serviceman or servicewoman starts a task, you can generally count on him or her to stick with it until it’s done, even if it turns unpleasant. Don’t be afraid to take pride in that, and to let people know that you’re not someone who leaves things unfinished.
