What information should a person have about a war before volunteering or accepting a draft?


During the Vietnam War, countrary to the belief that people just "dodged the draft", young people started studying about the country, the conflict, and the ethics of when to participate in war. "Teach-Ins" which presented both sides of the debate were conducted. (The term was coined to match the spirit of "sit-ins" for the Civil Rights Movement.) Some even saw the need to study the language since language and culture are so connected. Before one enlists or accepts being drafted for ANY war, what are some BASIC, fundamental pieces of knowledge a person needs before participating.
