The idea that members of a community have the duty to defend it, is as old as civilization itself (Ruschmann 10). The United States has an extensive history, starting with the original thirteen States of involuntary conscription in time of conflict. Citizen’s service is a standard principle of American military service, which places the obligation of service upon citizens to serve and to ensure that the state require those citizens to serve (Dalehite and Birskyte 1). With this obligation, young people will be imbued with a sense of “duty” and being part of the collective effort in which everyone will have and do their part for the benefit of the nation. Thereby, military service in the
This document is about if americans should be required to serve a year of service in the military before college. I believe that americans should be required to join the military because my brother has experience and I asked him this and he said the same thing as me because there would be military discounts, open up more jobs, and in the end die an honorable death.
The military has always been a part of my family’s life. My grandfather was in the army along with his son and my grandmothers other son’s. I also have many cousins who are still in and one who worked at the Pentagon. My uncles use to always tell us stories about their military service and how much they learned. Most of my cousins that joined only joined because of these stories and the lavish lifestyles they have seen my uncles live. Unlike them, I wasn’t drawn in by the stories my uncles told me, or the war letters from my deceased grandfather. For some reason it was my mothers dream for me; probably because its always something she wanted to do but was afraid, a fantasy I wasn’t quite ready to live in for her or them.
At a time when we are asking more of the National Guard both at home and abroad, its effectiveness is hampered by cold war structures and lack of institutional power within the Pentagon.
Most people have, at one point or another, considered what they were going to do with their lives. Whether a person would like to become an activist, an artisan or a business professional, the military has something for everyone. Finding a path in life is often filled with uncertainty and procrastination. The United States military is a path in itself, should one wish to retire from it; however, should a person wish to make their own path, there are benefits for that as well that can remove all doubt and curb procrastination. Due to these many benefits, I believe that it should be mandatory for all adults to enlist for a minimum of twenty-four months.
There are several social communities within the United States, and one of the biggest is the Military community – including active duty, reserves, and retired members. America’s military is the biggest and strongest military in the world, and only continues to keep growing and advancing. Due to the checks and balances of the government - also common knowledge - the president is consequently the commander-in-chief of the powerhouse United States Military. Recently there has been a severe change in the military since Donald Trump came into office, causing a so called “messy problem.” More specifically, a change that involves the transgender community as well. Trump declared that transgender individuals are no longer allowed to serve in the
Mandatory service goes by quite a few different names national service, conscription and the name most people are familiar with is the military draft. Throughout history the United States employed the draft during World War I, World War II and the Vietnam War just to name a few. Many other countries have used and still use conscription Finland, Denmark and Greece are some of the bigger countries that use this. I chose this topic because it affects me personally as a member of the Armed Forces. With the down sizing of troops in all the branches and with countries like North Korea, Russia and Syria being in news as a late. Could mean the need for more troops.
Growing up in Israel where military service is not an option but rather the norm is very different mentality. In fact it is somewhat unique. In the United States you are required to register for the draft but chances are that most Americans will not be fighting a war unless they make the conscious choice to join the military. In Israel, this is different. Every person over eighteen years of age has to serve 3 years if they are a male and females serve for two. There is no way getting around that. We are raised with the notion that once we reach a certain age we will be required to serve in an environment shall we say not too conducive to our health.
Military is something that anyone would like to join, but when they like to. Also, military help build confidence inside everyone; something it puts confidence down because feel like they not strong enough and good enough to join. Also, when people are being forced to join the military they won’t do as good. Therefore, people need to worry about graduating other than training for the military. In fact, young children shouldn’t be required to join the military, unless they prefer to.
I never really thought about joining the Army when I was younger. I guess I never really knew what i wanted to do either. I've had a few family members that were in the Army and I never really heard them say anything bad about it, so I kind of always thought of it as an option. On the other hand I have had family that told me I shouldn't join because there could be a war, but i just ignored them. Even my dad wanted me to join. He would always tell me about the good benefits that came with it, but after i joined it seemed like he changed his opinion. After I told him I enlisted he tried telling me all of the bad things about basic training, like how hard it would be and how they would try and break you down, but again i just ignored it. I always thought as myself as a pretty strong guy so negative comments didn't ever get to me.
Second, another good reason to join the army is because they are going to defend for their country. It could be for their civil rights, their land, or because of their freedom. There could be for many other reasons. In order to join the army, it should be the citizen's decision. I don't think a person should be forced to join the military by the government. The government should
Military is voluntary people choose to join. Ross Mcginnis volunteered after graduating high school. He joined for one reason; to get practical training and some day he wished to become a auto mechanic. One other person who joined the armed forces, her name was Dawn Halfaker, she joined the armed forces for one reason to be bigger than herself. For a women having the privilege to lead her own squad into battle.
In some countries every young person must serve two years of military service. Should the U.S. have a similar policy? On the bright side, citizens will know how to work in crew and defend themselves. Also, The rate of obesity will decrease due to the training and regimen thought by the military. Overall, countries who have this policy are known to have citizens with more discipline and character. Well supervised Military service has known to be beneficial in a less than 12 months period. Yes, the united states should demand military service to its citizens for a period of no more than 12 months.
If you would be forced into the military you would probably not be happy, but what if you grew up knowing you had to serve. This is the life of an average Israeli. Now imagine now that you have a friend and he is more religious than you and because he is religious he does not have to serve at all. You would probably not feel so happy about it. This is the issue that was discussed in Israel earlier last year. Israel is one of the few countries in the world with a mandatory peacetime draft. Every Jewish eighteen year old in Israel must serve in the army. For the longest time though ultra-orthodox were exempt from serving, as they would be studying in yeshivas. The big argument is can you force people to serve in the army if their religious beliefs contradict it. As for many topics in Judaism there are many answers. Within different categories of Judaism there are different answers, even between the same categories there are different answers.
I do not think that all men and women should be required to join the military if they are physically able to, because physical ability is not the only requirement. In order to be able to live a military life, men and women should be mentally prepared for the challenges they are going to face on a daily basis. If the military personnel is not mentally strong, these challenges can create difficulties that will keep them from performing their tasks. When you are in military, no matter what is your task, it is crucial to pay attention to every single detail, because even the smallest mistake can lead to vital results and cost lives. Considering this, it is necessary to be fit both mentally and physically.
