Let's say you enlist and do your time and decide to leave when it's up. Nothing big happens while you're in. You get out, you're 30 and single healthy. Now some shit happens.

And you support military action, but you really didn't like being IN the military and you don't wanna go through THAT shit again.

Gutless coward, or thank you for your service?
IMO, coward. I served already, but if I advocated for military action, it would be cowardly if I was still physically (and psychologically) able to serve and contribute but chose not to. In fact, I don't think I'd be able to live with myself having made such a decision.
