Serving in War

By Ashley Noller & Abby Lawson

RISKS

1) You can get killed. "It is important that there's an awareness of how many people actually die" (War: Deaths Grossly Underestimated).

2) You can get injured. "One out of every ten veterans alive today was seriously injured at some point while serving in the military" (For many Injured Veterans, A Lifetime of Consequences)

REWARDS

1) You will be honored by your country. "When wars end, and the fighting is over, young people killed or injured in battle are honored for their bravery" (abc News).

2) You can be proud of what you have done. "According to a new survey, about 89 Percent of war veterans sat they would join the military again" (Majority of veterans say they would join military again, despite scars of war)

By looking at the evidence provided, going to war is worth the risks. Yes, there are chances of getting killed and injured, but when it's over, the pride of knowing that you helped fight for the freedom of your country, is definitely worth it. "90 percent say, knowing what they know now, all the danger, the separation of family, that they would do it again" (PBS.org). Everyone will thank you for your bravery and hard work. So in conclusion, going to war is worth the risks.
