Inspired by rebelfury76: should all 18 year olds, once out of high school, be made to serve in the U.S. military for no less than 2 years.
No. Not a fan of indentured servitude.
LOLOLOL you're so damn funny!!
I said yes but I'd be happy with 12 or 18 months of mandatory service with absolutely no exceptions. If you can function on your own in society, you can serve in some capacity.
I would give people the option of something similar to the Peace Corps. or Americore as an alternative to the military.
By no exceptions do you mean no medical exceptions as well?
Yes, that's right. Medical or other exceptions start you down a "slippery slope" somewhat akin to tax deductions. I think most physically and mentally handicapped young people would take great pride in providing whatever service they can.
