Americans shouldn't be overly patriotic and should avoid military service if possible. Military devotion might be all for nothing and comes with risks. Since the beginning of the 21st century, tens of thousands of soldiers have been kicked out of the military for misconduct.
When the youth sign up to fight the enemy, they will be under the government's microscope. Superiors in the military evaluate a soldier's every move every day. If a superior in the army does not like the soldier's performance, they may be mentally evaluated and sent away to confinement in an institution and forced to take medication for life. If you cherish your freedom, you might just want to wait for a draft.
