Transitioning from military life to civilian life can be a brutal mind game for veterans. Upon return, they have to find a new version of normal. In the military, there is a different way of life which tends to pull soldiers away from the outside world. To veterans’ “Normal is alien encompassed many veterans experiences of disconnection from people at home, lack of support from institutions, lack of structure, and loss of purpose upon return to civilian life.” (Ahern 1). In the military your views and way of life change which makes it harder to convert back to the original way of life.
The war is something no one wants to go through. Soldiers train to fight for their country and for their very lives. In doing so, the war isn’t a pretty place to be in. Many soldiers have returned with diseases, missing limbs, and mental trauma. After fighting the war, numerous soldiers return home injured or has contracted some type of health condition or disease.
What is a person willing to sacrifice in order to have the prestige to be called a Sailor? In an America where job opportunities seem to be scarce; where the idea of having student loans discourage people from obtaining a higher education; and high medical premiums force people to wait until the brink of death before gaining the courage to step into a money sucking corporation known as a Hospital, thousands of Americans are opting for the military way. But how to blame our future warriors? Nowadays, TV commercials are filled with military propaganda with catchy phrases such as “Accelerate Your Life” and “A Global Force for Good.” Who can say no to that? But before seeing a recruiter, consider the following: Imagine getting a new job as a teacher at a local high school.
He was in the National Guard, and left his girlfriend Rae behind to serve his country. He knew it was a hard decision, leaving her behind. Ronnie worse a watch at all times, and got the same watch for Rae that would beep at the same time as his, so she could always remember him.

For Epifanio and Meyer, the war brought upon hostile people with opposing views of the war. They were confused on their views not sure of what to think of the war in their homelands. The war brought upon riots and shortages as they started to prepare for entry. Many people were leaving the U.S during this time. One reason is because they didn’t want to fight but Epifanio and Meyer both decided its better to stay and become a citizen than to leave and have worked so hard for nothing.
It is quite common today to hear the opinion that military service should not exist, and that it should be cancelled. Becoming a fully neutral state with a symbolic number of public servants will be the most suitable option. I am fully confident that neutrality of your country is not always the best approach: if you live quietly and peacefully it does not necessarily mean that others will live also with respect to you. In addition, no one forces you to build a military career if you do not want that. The only thing you should do is to serve to your country up to two years and protect its citizens.
An excellent example of this would be war. When a person goes into the military, they don't expect to change at all from their experiences there but when they actually start to get into combat, their whole perspective changes. They see things they don't want to see and can't unsee, they hear things they don't want to hear and can't unhear, and lastly they feel emotions and pain they don't want to feel. People

Previous conscription implementations have been proved to be devastating to its nations. The economy depends on the workers and cannot possibly be maintained if many of said workers are drafted into the military. Civil liberties must always be prioritized over national security in the United States because that is what the nation was built upon. Lastly with all the other alternatives present there is no need for a military conscription to occur. Overall a mandatory military conscription in the United States clearly should not be an event in that arises in the foreseeable future due to previous conscription efforts, possible economic effects, the infringement of civil liberties, and other
The military has a right to receive more pay than professional athletes because the people in the military risk their lives, they spend a majority of their time away from home, and military personnel do not have the living luxuries that professional athletes seem to have. According to Senator John McCain, people in the military receive barely enough money to maintain a normal or middle class life. Military personnel often volunteer to do a job in which their superiors ask them to risk their lives, whereas professional athletes volunteer to play their favorite game in front of thousands of fans to show off their abilities. Granted, entertainment acts as a necessity in today’s world, but it does not have the importance as some other jobs do. These
