Simply put, military service is overlooked and underappreciated by citizens. These individuals do not realize how significant of a role a nation's military plays in their own lives. If they were to truly understand such a sentiment, national security would in turn be everyone's first priority— But this is not the case. The military is not infringing on our own lives, instead, it has and always will be a part of our lives in regards to safety and security. Without it how would we even continue individual milestones in our lives?
Moreover, a failure to acknowledge and agree to this idea is inherently selfish. In other words, although military service does benefit the individual in a variety of ways, participating is a truly selfless sacrifice. You are protecting your country, and those who are too weak to defend themselves. Sure, military conscription may postpone important dates, but that is no justification for the refusal to serve and as a result, allow countless innocent lives to be lost.
