Serving in the military is one of the most selfless and honorable duty we can perform. Our nation would not be what it is today if not because of th dedication and sacrifice of the men in uniform. My eternal respect and admiration for those who do.

Having served in the military I have allot of respect for those serving, however that does not mean I'm entirely happy how my government today is using the military. (UK.) I do believe that the military rounds you off, gives you good discipline and opens you mind. I would not say it is a civil duty, but I would say that maybe Juvninials should do some time in the Military! Most of the people I joined up with were up to their neck in trouble and they compltey did a U turn and became very good people!!!! This could be a way of preventing problems in the future. When you think of Iraq and other confrontations don't put down those following orders. If you are against what is happening with your military stand up against those giving orders!!! I salute you, men and Women of valor!!!!

Up until a few years ago I'd said all should serve at least two years. Seems now we are ALWAYS in these political bullshit wars. Until we find presidents and a congress who will spend lives of our young men and women wisely...well we need to look at foreign policy.

My son is currently in the military and my dad served in Japan. I would serve if called. I regret not joining after I registered. I was told I was registered as 1-H or Holding if the draft was reinstated. I have served my nation in other ways but not at war. I believe it should be a matter of choice and the best military personnel are those who join.

Military service as a public duty when a nation is not at war is highly debatable. To conscript people for the sake of "equality" or "diversity" or some other such slogan is social engineering to the highest degree.

The modern military is high technology and it takes well trained and motivated individuals. You are not going to draft some mope, give him and multi-million dollar piece of equipment, a few weeks basic training and say, "Here, go drive this." Those days are long gone.

The necessity of a mass military is not needed today. It would be wasteful and counter-productive. We have seen the last of the "citizen soldier." Such an army was to be frank, of low quality, anyhow.

It is not spoken very loudly, but for instance, the US Army in Europe after Normandy was rife with desertion, cowardice, crime and every other vice prevalent when you have millions of people forced to be some place where they don't want to be. That was the unvarnished iron verdict of history.

That is just human nature.

There should be a call to reinstate the draft. At least then the democracies of the world might use war (and the precious lives of the men and women who serve) more judiciously.

By the way, I do not support the little man in China manufacturing those yellow ribbon stickers. What happened to rationing and things of that nature as a show of support? How about diverting some more funds to the DAV, etc?

Even if your beliefs run contrary to what is going on in the world it is hard not to respect and feel for the men and women fighting under very difficult circumstances. They are doing their job.

Serving in the military is a civic duty only in time of war. At any other time it's simply a career choice.

Yes, it's a duty to some degree, but it's also a personal choice, and rightly so.

Conscripted military service sure didn't work for the Confederacy. . .

I think it is a great decision that people make when they join the military and serve their country. Our military provides security here, and helps out other countries around the world. While I stop short of thinking that all people should somehow serve their country, I think that it is an important duty for everybody to consider.
