28. I do believe this but I have changed my view now having discourse with enough Republicans on forums.

"That all Americans ought to serve in uniform"
My new take is mandatory service with no deferments no preferential treatment minimum of 2 years active duty and the first year MUST be in a line company or infantry. If you want to go into the Air Force or Navy and since they really don't have infantry you must first become a Marine or Regular Army basic infantry first. THEN and only then can you pick and choose your MOS or branch of service. All Marines are first and foremost 0311 basic infantry, then you go on from there to pick your skill set. Want to stop these insane wars of choice? Make it so, and watch them end. It's just my opinion and I am entitled to it. I don't expect many will agree with me that is why it is called an opinion. I am sick of the pukes like Ted Nugent and others becoming heroes of the right having done nothing positive and defended by cowardly yellow bellied chicken hawks.
