Take care of you body while your in take vitamins for your joints like msm ,glucosamine. Work out your back to minimize the damage from road marches. Wearing body armor and back packs or rucks or mollies. Whatever they call backpacks now. You may depending on your assigned duty may have to carry from 35 LDS to 110 plus. Motormen got it the worst. You get I don't remember but like every three years you get paid to buy new uniforms. It covers enough to get a uniform socks underwear t-shirts and a few other things and the rest you pay out of pocket. If you single an e-4 or below you live in the barracks. Some places treat them like apartments others treat them like military barracks. You get assigned cleaning duties pull charge of quarters duty in the middle of the night. Not allowed sleepovers, over certain amounts of alcohol, outside cleanup details. If or when you make sergeant or staff Sergeant if in the contiguous US you MAY live off post and will get sesperate rations(you get paid to feed your self), and housing g allowance based on your rate of pay, like what iceman was talking about.
