For those of you who don't know, in the US, you only have to register for the draft at 18, but that is no contract of service at that age. You can
join at any age. Speaking from experience, I can assure you that these " children " you speak of, that can't make valid decisions for themselves,
is a false assumption. When an 18 year old joins any branch of service, and thrust into a position where they are responsible for millions of dollars
of tax payers equipment, maybe other lives at stake, the training that these " children " undergo, vastly improve their maturity rate.
The very notion that these individuals at the age 18 " don't know any better ", is a slap in the face to those who have, and are currently joining
our forces at the age of 18.
With that logic, we also need to change the acceptance age to prestigious colleges, because the children at the mere age of 18, are ill informed, and
can't make decisions for themselves, further suggests that at colleges, they can't discern from fact or fiction from a college Professor who is
preaching leftist propaganda? So we need to stop allowing HS grads from going to college, atleast till they're 21, just so they can perceive the
world in their own way rather than buying into a college paradox.
