At least half of America’s 770,000 troops are unhappy at work and report pessimistic feelings about their career. That’s according to mandatory online questionnaires soldiers fill out each year seen by USA Today.
Job satisfaction remains low, USA Today reports, with 48% of service personnel not feeling committed or satisfied with work. And 52% of troops marked yes to statements like “I rarely count on good things happening to me.”
Physical health did not score well either, with 86% of soldiers saying they are not receiving proper rest or nutrition.
