My three sons are not desirable as the oldest is ADHD and the two youngest are high functioning Autistic.
However we've asked them and all three say that if you join the military you give your will over to that of the Government and at one point you may be
told to kill someone.
All three said unless someone broke into our house to kill us or in self defense, they could not kill another person.
Sometimes what may seem like a curse is a blessing in disguise.
My husband was in the Navy during Viet Nam because he was going to be drafted, but once they saw he had a high IQ they put him on a aircraft carrier
and he never saw any action.
One guy I dated before I knew my husband, came back from Nam and he did see action, on the ground, special forces that cleared the way.
When he came back on leave to visit me, he had changed (not for the better). He was different - hard, cold, tortured.
What would I do?
I would still love them but I have expressed my feelings about war, violence, hate except in the case of some army invading our soil. But going out
to fight for the big Corporations to be able to pillage oil and resources from other countries - is in my book, not honorable.
911 and this is my own opinion, was a false flag operation.
I never bought any of my three sons toy guns, bb guns, bows and arrows for "play".
We also did not allow our three sons to watch violent stuff on TV. Now my kids are in their 30's so it was easier back then.
We really limited their TV.
