Its GOOD to have that street in a cop, but when you have a cop that has been battle hardened, and more trained, not only will he be able to handle the situation, but he will more than likely be the one leading the team. They also usually have better manners than those cops who have not served.
ALSO...DO NOT..I REPEAT..DO NOT LET HIM BECOME AN MP. INSTEAD< have him teach himself a trade while hes in there, or to be a grunt. Not an MP. The military make their cops AHOLES(just wanna make that clear).
The war is the only thing standing in his way. And if he is ok with that, well than more respect to him. I know he would have mine. Hope that helped-

Who wouldnt want a Budweiser after a conversation like that?
I am considering going back despite all of this, and its the reason I gave earlier. I think more people of good character and morals need to be in the positions to keep bad things from happening.
I'm on your side on this, I think military is and should be absolutely the last resort. Like others have said the best thing you can do is give the real facts on those who are currently serving in the military to counter what the recruiter is telling him.
