The military is supposed to be for the purpose of defending your country. However, how many people do you think join for that actual noble cause or possibly for other reasons? For the money,education, or to simply be able to experience the thrill of taking life in combat. Or any other reasons.
If any BLers have been in the military what compelled you to join or what even may have compelled some of you to find a way out? Not considering joining myself,just curious as to opinions on the topic compared my own. Also would like to be able to have insight if anyone close to me decides to join the military down the road in life how to handle the situation from my end on the emotional level. MODS, if you feel this would be better suited in P&S feel free to move it ^.^
