To live in a society where you are born free, and have opportunities presented to you to succeed in every aspect of life one must give of one's self for the United States of America was fought for and paid with the blood of martyrs and tyrants. If this youngman appreciates his national privileges, rights and freedoms then it should not be a problem to state to his country that he is ready, willing and able to engage in combat and fight for it!
You see the reason why defectors are shot for treason. Youngman, you were blessed to be born in a nation where you have born rights out your Mother's womb to become whatever in life you decide to be.
I can tell you that I HAPPILY signed my Selective Services letter and sent it back the same day without even thinking about it. People of past have given their lives to this country, and I for one thank them appreciably for without their sacrifice you, I and everyone else in this country would not be living the highest affordable standard in the world today!
No offense to you directly youngman but, the Lord hates a coward.
