Why do people join the army?

War is wrong! You have to kill millions of people, most who didn't do anything. You die, mostly for oil! Whats so great about shooting people? I really want to know?

It's a job, and it's important to this country. It also provides a good lifestyle for one's family and a future. Really, you have benefited from the lives and sacrifices of many soldiers, so you are being disrespectful.

It's not all about death and destruction.
Have you considered they are there to save people too?

Really, when has the army really been there to save people? When hasn't it been about oil, or money?

When your in a combat zone you can't just go out when there's a machine gun squad with 1,000 rounds of ammo firing at YOU and YOUR team mates you can't negotiate with your enemy when he's trying to kill you in any way he can what are YOU gonna do?

@clem, I can't believe we have men and women fighting for YOUR freedom hippie and this is what gobs them yeah ok let's see what happens when a little kid with a bomb inside of him comes running at you what are you gonna do negotiate with the bomb? What if that child was abducted by Al Qaeda and put the bomb in the kid himself and told the boy if he doesn't go up to those soldiers and kill them then he'll kill the boy himself. Yeah go ahead hippie spread all the peace you want and I come from a military family F.Y.I. And none haven't died in combat and my FATHER was a scout sniper in Kuwait and in the first Gulf War fighting Saddam Hussein and the Republican Guard trying to PROTECT Kuwait and Iran's people from becoming Saddam's biochemical warfare test subjects. What are you gonna do then when those countries were outnumbered and defenseless against the Republican Guard and they called for help from other countries. Don't even make me go to Nazi Germany.

-Actually, all jobs within the army isn't about killing.
-Some do it for money.
-Some do it because of patriotism.

The army puts oil and money aside and makes OUR COUNTRY a priority. Without the army, we would probably be slaves. All of the wars happen for a reason. And it's not always ours. People join the army to protect our family, and serve our country. Think about that.

War is not wrong. Things like 911 happened by the hands of other people. The army killed them and saved us from another attack. It's them, or us. You decide.

To serve their country. Protect those they love. And the duty to every soldier is to protect the innocent, not just kill people. My dad was in the army for 6 years, ranking up, won multiple awards, was invited in for Ranger training and to become an officer, never killed anyone.

I think most join out of a sense of patriotism. Some join because they can't find a job
