National Service

Recommended Posts

this is something that i think should be brought back, not necessarily on the front line but if needed yes!

as a family man and a father of 4 Children i think it would provide some feral children with some much needed discipline and sense of honour, discipline and loyalty to our country!

your thoughts??

We have had this conversation on AVF before, Loyal.

#262998 National Service, Yes Or No?
Posted by Larry-AV on 22/07/2014 in The Holte Suite
National Service will not be reintroduced because the Armed Forces oppose it.
The Royal Navy, Royal Air Force and British Army are all volunteer and professional organisations.
They do not want their attentions diverted from their duties, by instilling the discipline and manners that should be inculcacted by parents and teachers, at home and at school.
Now every generation seems to take a dim view of the 'Youth of Today'.
Well, apart from those here who are at their Youth stage, we were all the 'Youth of Today', in times past !
I for one am determined not to decline into a 'Grumpy Old Man'.
We are only young once, so let the 'Youth of Today' have the time to enjoy their youth ... and not be conscripted.
A most telling statement : Young Man's Blood ... Old Man's War.
Think about it.

Sort a lot of the work shy and regenerate a culture of worth and neighborly love/harmony.

Lots of pro's and cons, however military life only really works if you want to be there. i wouldnt want to see these lads/lasses sent to fight with front line units, this type of thing should be purely voluntary.

I believe it SHOULD happen. Part of me wishes I had to do it aswell.

Schools don't teach you enough these days.

About what?

Teachers teach their respective subjects. Shouldn't be up to us to instill discipline in children.

Teachers get blamed for all society's ills, despite the fact that parents have often ruined their children before they get to us.

Absolutely!!! Couldn't have said it better myself!! Momma Peev sent me a video about teaching from teachers. Four minutes of pure bliss to hear my views on teaching recognised.

I didn't mean that in a negative way. School do what they should do but they don't help you with changes to adult hood.

Respect and self discipline.

Actually had a convo the other day with the wife and both agreed that there should be a compulsory work experience scheme.

Not the one where you find the job you would like to do and spend two weeks there. You should be forced into doing all different types of job over say a 2 month period.

See what you are good at, like etc.

I wonder how many adults grow up wishing they took a different career path but feel trapped by mortgages and bills etc?
