Service in the military can be a way for someone to uphold their family legacy or give back to a country that has given them many opportunities. Unfortunately, service often comes with a high cost.

Those who serve in the military can get hurt during basic training so badly that they never even see active duty. Those who do serve actively could wind up physically injured because of job responsibilities, permanently disabled because of injuries suffered during conflict, or even psychologically scarred by things they witness or have to do because of their position.
