Cass. there is no mandatory military training in this country(USA). I believe you are thinking of Junior ROTC which is on a completely voluntary
basis. After that is the true ROTC which is normally at University level but also NEVER mandatory. I think that is a good thing actually. As someone
posted a few days ago, I would rather have willing soldiers than conscripts fighting for my country.
Personally, I have not served in the military since I'm a bit of a rebel and don't react well to someone screaming in my face.
I AM on the other hand a part of the militia to help defend the country in case of the need, meaning, armed and ready to fight invaders.( That ought
to boil Lupe a bit
In conclusion, mandatory military service results in troops surrendering to journalists and losing wars. I like the idea of winning with the best in
