Well, my father tried to join the military the day after Pearl Harbor, but was rejected for medical reasons. By the time the Army had dropped its standards low enough to draft him, he was married with a child on the way. So there are pragmatic reasons.

His brother served in WW2, Korea, and Vietnam. In the final war he suffered an injury that sent him to a desk job for the rest of his life. I figure he had already done enough.
