ARMY DAILY LIFE
Eating, Sleeping And Shopping
Let's get through the basics. A soldier's daily life is not that different from the life you lead now. You'll still eat the food you normally eat. You'll sleep in a regular bed. You'll shop, worship, maintain and live your daily life pretty much as you do now. There are vets to take care of your pets, chapels and religious buildings, grocery stores, dry cleaners, etc. You name it and it probably exists on or near your Post, no matter where you are. Sure, the names of places have changed, but the game really hasn't. In fact, there are a number of things that might actually be better.
See, one advantage of Army daily life versus civilian life is the community that forms around your everyday life. It might surprise you to learn just how supportive, united and extensive Army families and communities are. Military life encourages families to support one another, and one of the most valuable assets a family can have when adjusting to change is the network of families who have undergone exactly the same thing. In fact, friends are easy to make in the military community, and an experienced family member, who was once new just like you, is always available to show you the ropes if you need assistance with your daily life in the Army.
