why?

Why do people join the military if they are not willing to go to war? The American military is volentary. If you don't want to kill people, don't go. I didn't join, I never went to war. I knew if I joined, I would likely go to war. or be asked to do things I didn't want to do. people would yell at me and force me to make my bed and iron my clothes. No thanks. I mean, the landlord yelled at me yesterday, and I make my bed almost every day now, but...
If I was drafted, I'd go, but thankfully we don't do that anymore. If you join the military, you need to understadn that it is your job to do whatever the government tells you to do, even if you don't agree with it. Desserting makes look like an ass, and it definately makes you a traitor, so please, potential desserters, accept responsibility for the monumentous decision you made and finish your term. Canada should not have to spend it's resources figuring out what to do with you.

I have to agree with you. I did not jion for similar reasons that you had. I know if I did make that dicision I would have to stick to it. I was not ready to make that kind of dicision in life. I dont think I ever will. It's just not what I am here for. Maybe I dont have the guts, I don't know?

I don't think it is about guts, I think it's about you as a person. You either know the military id for you, or you know it isn't. i knew it wasn't, although i would like to think that I would have served with a smile. I simply chose to serve my country in a different way. I do think it is important to make a positive contibution.
