When you say risk your life for your Country you also have to look at what someone is told in the begining compared to what the outcome is.
In the begining all one knows it what they are told. What about someone trying to make a living for there family? You always dont do what's right. When one signs up for the army, navy or which ever it be they are bound to serve their country for some time. And somewhere in between if they choose that they are done but have not served their time, what will happen then?
This is where I say that I do believe in the Matrix to a certain extent. Mainly where Morpheous tell Neo that this is the world and then shows him another scene and says this is the world as our government wants us to see it
So to answer your question It all depends on what I am told because the first thing in every decision I make I think of my 3 little girls and my wife. If what I am told will effect my family in any negative way then my answer is NO if it helps my family then YES
Hope I didnt confuse anyone.
