Teamwork is paramount in the Army, and very much so in the clinical setting. We all work together to complete the mission.

I'm Major Argelio Lopez-Roca. I'm a Forensic and General Psychiatrist, and I've been assigned to Brooke Army Medical Center.

Compared to civilian private practice, on every 15th and every 30th, you will get a paycheck. I helped my dad in his office and I remember we fought for the longest time with this company he had done some consulting for. Here, you don't have that level of stress as to where the payment is going to come from for the house, the office, the cars.

I see my opportunity for advancement as very good. If you show that you are able to do the work, the Army is always making sure that you get more and more responsibility.

Another opportunity is being able to work with people from other countries. Because I am fluent in Spanish, I have been invited to lecture at international conferences in South American countries on three different occasions, in three different years. It was incredible.

The Army offers other opportunities as well. There is an obvious emphasis on maintaining the morale of the family and the service members. When you're doing your job, you are expected to do it 100%. When you're not and you have a break, being able to enjoy it to the fullest is absolutely something that is put within your reach. I'd never seen a military post like Fort Bragg. They had all kinds of activities and even a waterpark for the kids.

One of the things I find very enjoyable is going horseback riding with my friends. What better way to spend a couple of hours than going down a trail with a couple of horses, just enjoying everything around you?

What motivates me to get up and do my job is making sure the Soldiers are being taken care of, and being able to help them in the best possible way.
