    I am not currently enlisted in the Army, but I am considering it. I want to be a Mental Health Specialist; I feel like it would be a job of a lifetime and I would be proud to serve the country and the country's elite force. I read that the Army is notorious for having you work in a position that is not related to your field. Is that true? I also want to know how difficult it is for woman in the Army. I am pretty "girly". Im very athletic I just don't know how I would hold up with all the mind games. If anyone could give me your insight and personal experience, I would really appreciate it.

    To clarify, are you interested in Active Duty Army, or the National Guard? Much of your questions sound like they would refer Active Duty.

      Infamy aside, I can't think of notorious examples where soldiers are "working in a position that is not related to your field", unless we are talking about a private working a CQ desk, or perhaps a NCO assigned as training cadre or in a recruiting assignment for example.

      Today's Army fully integrates women into the force structure with only direct combat arms units being off limits. It is sterotypical to think that the women who serve are "butch" or non-feminine.

      The 68x is a rewarding entry level field. Good luck.
