I served as USMC Infantry for more than 13 years until retired for taking to many AK rounds in the wrong places. My son asked me just 2 weeks ago my thoughts in him joining the military. I told him there is nothing more nobel than a creative endeavor. More specifically creating a rational being, that loves them selves and their fellow man; that can and does maintain loving life long relationships. And thats when I said the military is by it's nature an agency of destruction. The antithesis of what I would want my son associated with. But of coarse I'd support what ever he chose.
