How could I be miserable in the military?

So I'm thinking about joining the active duty (full time) military.

People tell me things like

• You'll often be away from home

• You'll often be away from family

• You don't get paid much


Well here are the things though.

I don't even have a family.  In college you might be away from home as well as your family (especially during an abroad).

Even though I don't get paid much, I still get a rent-free home.  Free utilities (if i live on the base) and free water (if i live on the base).  I also get a free uniform and I get a GI bill of rights.  I also get great health, dental, and vision innsurance.  

So even though I might not get paid much money, I get other benefits to help SAVE money.

So what else in the military could be unpleasant (other than being in war).

    The worst part is being treated as free labor. Commanding General wants the leaves on the trees painted green guess what, you might find yourself painting tree leaves.
