Work / life balance

Family and Community

The Military believes a strong family, community and self are as important to the success of a service member as training or certification.

Support For Service Members

Service members are expected to work hard but also have time and opportunities to relax and socialize. For example, many military bases offer gyms, movie theaters, parks, recreational sports leagues and more.

The Military also works with Armed Forces Entertainment to provide more than 400 music, comedy and theatrical shows around the world each year.

Additionally, the Services’ Morale, Welfare and Recreation (MWR) programs help service members keep an active social life with activities, facilities and opportunities that include:

  • Arts and crafts
  • Bowling tournaments
  • Alpine skiing
  • Whitewater rafting
  • Bike trails
  • Hunting areas
  • Marinas
  • Paintball fields
  • Picnic sites
  • Barbecues
  • Cabins
  • Boat rentals
  • Organized sports teams
