    I did my compulsory military service 13 years ago. I served for 12 months while the minimum time was 6 months for ordinary privates. I became a battle engineer platoon leader. Nowadays I'm committed to a voluntary (rifle, jaeger) force that has bigger trainings 3-6 times a year and smaller ones more often.

    Being a small republic Belarus had two airborne brigades (38th and 5th) stationed near Brest and Minsk cities. And one 103rd division stationed in Vitsebsk and Vitsebsk region. The 103rd airborne division was stationed in Kabul during 80s. There was only one other airborne division stationed in Kandahar. 103rd airborne division is legendary. We've kept their battle flag and awards. They left us with legacy.

    Airborne forces are considered elite forces similar to those of marines in USA. The founder of Soviet airborne forces is Vasily Margelov, who was an eastern Belarusian by descent.

    Neighbouring Lithuania had 44th training Airborne Division. Recruits would go to Lithuania for 6 months training, later doing military service in Belarus or Afghanistan.

    I gave it serious thought when I was in High School. A friend of mine had joined and he tried getting me to join because he got $1,000 (I think it was) for everyone he got to join. I would've been a Combat EMT had I joined.

    But, ultimately, I chose not to because I just didn't want to join the US military and all the shit they have to do.

    In my country military service is compulsory. There're many ways to escape military. If I attended optional military training in my University for 2 years, I'd have got lowest officer rank (Lieutenant) of reserve getting exemption from military service unless extraordinary circumstances such as war. I knew I could escape military service, so I was not attending military training in university. After graduation, I was patriotic. I was conscripted for 12 months. I don't regret spending 12 months doing military service for my country.

    My compulsory service was 11 months, of which 5 months basic armed service and 6 months meteorology including mainly meteorological reports for artillery. Computers replaced me later
    Blog: http://terheninenmaa.blogspot.fi/, with essence "Believe me, or I'll nuke you".

    H39 - Thracia 1650 BC, Hungary 5000 BC
    I1 - Transdanubia 5000 BC

    Three simple facts about Finns:
    1. Baltic Finnic languages (including Finnish) never came from the Volga basin along with ancestors of present-day Finns.
    2. Finnish I1 (around 30% of all Finns) has Germanic roots from the late Bronze Age or the early Iron Age.
    3. As to the Finnish prehistory we have no evidences about any Iron Age (or later) east-to-west migration, but many unquestionable evidences about west-to-east migrations.

    I served in the air force for 10 years. I enjoyed my time but 10 years was enough. I got to see and do a lot of things that your average person couldn't even start to imagine, both good and bad. Like anyway of life, it had it's pros and cons.

    Respect!

    In our part of the world military service was compulsory

    for 3 years in Army and 4 years in Navy before early 60s
    for 2 years in Army and 3 years in Navy after early 60s.

    Nowadays, in Belarus it's 12 months. We don't have Navy. Although 6 months is also possible on some occasions.

    I grew up with computers from early age. A friend of our family gave me a computer - old Apple Macintosh - as a present. The one that had RISC based processor. We installed NetBSD on it.
