Should The Country Impose A Compulsory 2 Years Military Service For All Men Over 21 Years Of Age?
yes and no. i believe all should serve but voluntary is better than forced. as to all men, why not the women as well. women have proved to be great soldiers as of late and i would serve again if they would let me and with men or women
With the declining ambition and motivation of today's youth, more of them in their 20's still living at home and not even trying - yes, there should be for all PEOPLE that are not attending college or some similar professional trade type school. That may help with the rampant laziness sweeping this country's young people. It would also give them a better attitude towards rules and respect that also seem to have been on the downward swing. I have seen and heard of other countries doing so, and there seems to be no real problem with it. If you asked me this question 10 or 20 years ago I would have answered the same as dabeaner did. but with the decline of our youth today, I have changed my mind, though I am not real fond of the loss of freedom with no choice...
It would give the youth of today some discipline and motivation, something they are sorely lacking. But, given the lack of American History or it's liberal distortion taught in schools now days, I would have to say no in answer to your question.
Without being taught the historical foundation of this country, they would not know nor care about the country for which they were serving.
Before and during my service in the Marine Corps, I would have said yes. But, honestly, it would not work. Such a policy has been causing problems in Israel for years. It's bad enough when you have 10% dirt bags. Mandatory service will beef up the numbers and cripple overall readiness and morale. Plus, I hope that none of my children serve in the military, so I would disagree with a law that required it of them. My family has done enough for this ungrateful nation. The United States no longer deserves the brave men and women who protect it.

would you recommend military service to someone?Joining the Navy was one of the best (and scariest) decisions I ever made but it was the right one for me. It gave me direction in my life and I gained skills.
