Monty coined the phrase “The Military Condition” in relating to service members and families who spent any amount of time serving the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines or Coast Guard. The conditioning starts when the individual enlists in the military and starts working with the recruiter. Learning about military life and duties along with the job (MOS) that they signed up for sets the stage for the Military Condition. The military is a whole different lifestyle that can be very demanding at times. The language is different, they dress differently and they’re held accountable to the UCMJ (Uniform Code of Military Justice) 24-hrs a day. The military also teaches teamwork along with skills that you normally would not acquire as a civilian. Let’s face it the military is designed for defending America and that’s what they specialize in.
