not a pacifist either, I am willing to do what and where the universe takes me, and upon contemplation, I feel it is selfish of me not to join. To
reap the benefits of the vanity here, and not put in my time regardless of what people say the intentions are. This way I will feel I have a voice
when it comes to speaking of things government/military related, and I will not feel guilty sitting on my perch while people die for me to do so, I
will have put in my time to reap such benefits as vanity.
Also, I want to try and prove to myself that the government is not evil, and if they are, and Im correct, then I at least have some say having served.
