It’s not about WAR… it’s about Whiskey Alpha Romeo.
War is evil (some argue a necessary one), but being smart, disciplined, punctual, tough and respected isn’t. Soldiers all over the world put their lives on the line so that people like you and me can live their lives peacefully, and continue fretting about things like traffic, body odour and how tasteless our coffee is.
Although territorial aggression is as old as humans themselves, an organized military is something that came into existence around the same time as what we generally refer to as civilization. A military serves the purpose of not only aggression, but also defence and protection.
