The economy is on the rocks and for a lot of young people one of the few ways for them to make it in life is to join the armed forces it seems, what do you think?
one of my close relatives is asking himself should I join the armed forces?
His mother and father are both bible thumping Christians and he is as well, I'm trying to come up with some good reasons to give him not to join, I hope it's not too late to try to help him make the best choice.
I'm sure that many of us have people we know who are asking the same question so how about it what can we tell them to help them make the best choice?
No compromises in life are worth losing your self identity to become a professional war monger. Conscripts to the Vietnam was at least could protest the war and killing because they forced into it.
But if you volunteer, you're basically selling yourself down short. All the money wasted on war should be spent in war mongering should be relocated to education and healthcare and the EPA in order to get all the pollutants out of our lives.
Please don't go :(
the military is a wonderful opertunity. though, personally, I'll never join. infact if the draft were ever reinstated, i'd flee the country.
what i have against the military, or the government in general is this: there is always going to be prejudice against atheists.
anyway, i'd never make it in the military..i would speak up about way more things then they would like, and probably end up with a discharge, or in front of a firing squad. lol
