Is the military service a training for godliness, from your perspectives as participants in the army? No doubt, in Canada, members of the Canadian Armed Force are often held by the public in high esteem. They are well fit and competent in their tasks; there is no needless concern for them in finding employment after their service. And those remain in service can earn a stable income for their family and vacation expenses. After all, every man would expect "Oh! I'm so proud of my husband!" But from a biblical perspective, does an experience in the military mold you into a godly person? Perhaps rigorous disciplines and physical exertion might help, but I wish to hear from PBers who are former or current army members. I also love to hear those who are in the US army as well! Thought?
