What is it like to be in the U.S. Army Infantry?

See, you usually move every 3 years, although you can re-enlist once during your career to stay at the same post for at least 2 years, and since they don't move any body who has less than 1 year left in, and they don't move anybody to anywhere but Korea who has less than 3 years in, you be able to stay at one post for...
