Never stood on a high horse talking about serving my country. I mentioned the military in the context of it being an advantage when applying for a civilian ATC job. I referenced military service in a way that makes sense in this forum. Also, you have NO IDEA why I joined whether it was for compensation, or a commitment to duty. I never considered it a slogan, when I told my parents and friends that I was proud of serving my country. Stop blaming society for your shortfalls. Grow up and be man!^^^^
FOR ARGUMENT SAKE since you are firing at individuals who do go to college...then i will fire back at you and let you know the stereotype why a military individual goes the military route...maybe they did not get accepted into a college...that was the main reason why people joined the military back in the day ....ontop of this...
I understand "serving your country" concept... if you truly feel that in your heart..then thats how it is supposed to be THATS HONORABLE.....but lets be honest...you signed up for a job, to get paid, to get an incentive...and THE fact that you are serving your country just comes in handy as a slogan...sad but in this time of age thats how it is...please tell me with the distorted society we live in that a 18-25 year old has that in mind...this might not pertain to everyone, for argument sake..
If we had mandatory duty like alot of countries do...then in all honesty, you are serving your country...but since you have options...i highly doubt that was the only reason you went into the military...i can even argue its one of the least reasons in this time and age...this society...hold your horses and stop looking down at everyone who did not go into the military...
