Mixed emotions, years ago they were full of Soldiers who had never seen combat, I had a few reservists who departed mob station and spent two years there playing xbox, chaptered them out for height weight after their return. Then you have plenty of great Soldiers who are committed to serving their country that need the assistance. Best answer I can come up with is to be prepared to spend most of your time with the malingerers and shammers and occasionally provide good assistance to those that really need it. (But same is true with any command)
Never commanded one, but here's my impression. Like nearly everything else in life, you'll have to take the good with the bad. You'll get the honor and privilege of supporting some of our nation's finest heroes as they recover and transition to the next stage in their lives. And you'll get to deal with some of the tiny heated who never had any intent on dedicating themselves to the profession and gave nothing back to the military while taking in as many benefits as they could. And all sorts that fall in the middle. No assignment has ups without downs. But if you're a good leader, don't shy from the opportunity to support some of our finest who deserve the best leadership just because there are some duds mixed in there.
The one thing you will need to remember, there will be slackers, there will be those that are seen as slackers but aren't. Treat each soldiers as an individual. No one knows what is really happening with them. Don't make excuses for them nor allow them to make excuses. You will do just fine, I would take the command.
