There are practical reasons not to do so. If you are talking about a draft, and then someone supports a war but then dodges the draft for aforementioned war, then yes, that would be hypocrisy. But in general, the U.S. military does not have a personnel shortage, or at least, not one to the extent that someone who supports a war would have to volunteer for the military to fill all of its slots. The number of able-bodied people who supported the war in Iraq probably far exceeded the number of people the U.S. military needed in Iraq.
