That would be individual...
There are countries where You would NOT have the ability to have this conversation... Isn't that ability ALONE worth defending?

Having lived around the world as a kid as a military and civilian dependent, I saw a lot of things going on in other countries that I never saw in the US of A.

In the United States, I have never had a Stechkin Machine pistol or machine gun pushed into my face for any reason by a local, state or Federal official. 99.9% of Visitors to our country can say that they've never been search at gunpoint simply because they are a foreign national.
On a Euro-vacation that would have had Chevy Chase incarcerated for a lifetime, I was searched at age 15 crossing the (now defunct) Yugoslavian border, my mother and 2 little sisters were scared spit-less and I thought, THIS ain't right!
That same vacation, I was spit on in Paris and denounced because I was a American. I noticed that Paris Nord (train station hadn't been properly repainted since the Nazis had left.
As a young Marine, I traveled to Buchovena (Hungary, our ancestral home) which was under COMMUNIST leadership to take care of family business. I was followed -- no, escorted, by KGB and local Intel the entire time and OH YEAH, I had to PAY for that privilege.
Later, I went to East Germany and Czechoslovakia to buy a set of German Shepherd, I again was escorted and paid for that privilege.

When the Soviet Union fell, we, AMERICA, swapped Wheat for their NUKES... I escorted Russian Nukes to the US for dismantling, they have so many problems. Totalitarianism was not replaced, it was renamed and added to it was a Mafia that is manned by the cast offs from the Totalitarian regime.

We have liberties that people in other countries can only dreams about (correlative: Otherwise Why do we have a 10+ year waiting list for Immigrant applications?).

There are so MANY reasons to defend this nation.
I can't think of one reason NOT to turn to in defense of this the GREATEST nation on this small orb.

I enlisted in 1957 and went on to 25 years of service in the Navy. If you want to know what moral principle was involved in the continuance of that career, I met the author of that principle in 1959 when we went to jail together in Georgia after a "sit-in" at a library. His name was Martin Luther King, Junior:
"If a man cannot find something he is willing to die for, that man is not fit to live".
Try that one out with the college professors in your town. Don't tell them who said it. Chances are they will think it's some ultra-right wing war monger. They will be wrong!

I serve because I wanted to serve my country, and better myself.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

I originally went in to the Air Force right out of high school shortly after the Viet Nam War ended. I didn't have money for college, and didn't really know what I wanted to be.
I enjoyed the camaraderie, the challenges, and the fact I was serving my country.
I got out of the AF after 7.5 years and went to college.

I eventually got my masters degree and went into the Navy as an officer. I had missed the challenges the military offered, along with the deep friendships, and my wife and I wanted to have our four kids experience living in other countries/cultures.
Altogether I was in 24.5 years.

I remember reading something President Kennedy said, "Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country." I believe that. Everyone should serve their community, state, or their country in some way.

To protect people who don't appreciate what they are doing like you.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

We do what we do for you. So that you will never have to know war. So that you can sleep peacefully at night and ponder why someone would have to fight. If all countries laid down their arms then there would be no need for soldiers. But as long as we live there will be people that want to hurt us and take what we have. It is ONLY the threat of force that stops them.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

Pride in their country, to protect their values, protect their family's way of life, some may do it for money, for life experience,

I personally think that EVERY person if physically capable should do 2 years of military service upon turning 18. There would be more respect from younger people.

to serve and protect their country even if it means risking their lives for us

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

to save the life of others.. we need some people to make sure that the rest of the country is safe and if we dont have those people then everybody could potentially get hurt. Unfortunately, some lives have to go in order to save the lives of hundreds of thousands of people.
the moral/value is to help the COUNTRY and the PEOPLE in it so that their families and friends can live with out being harmed by something. they protect everyone else from getting hurt.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

Serving in the military is a tremendous honor. As a servicemember you have the opportunity to effect social and political change all over the world.

For example, African American men and women continued to serve in all major wars despite vicious racism and segregation in the service. And as a result of these brave veterans' perseverance and sacrifice the military - and eventually the United States - recognized the contributions of all of its servicemembers.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

you serve in the military to serve your country. its a really big honor and it makes you stronger and a better person. It doesn't have to be about morals or values.

Freedom........and the ability to have a job and get and education.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

Well, you can thank those people unless you'd rather be hailing de fuerer or speaking Russian or Chinese and letting their government tell you where to work, where to live, etc. Let's face it, without a military, the U.S would just be a pot of gold ready to be plucked up by another country by use of their force.
