Argument: Military service offers invaluable experiences
- Debate: Compulsory military service - pro argument.
Kaarel Siim, who is trained as a team doctor in the Estonia Kuperjanov Infantry Battalion, said in March of 2011: “I would have gone if it wouldn’t be mandatory. I have been forced to experience a lot of new things that would have been impossible at home. Because of my time in service I have been forced to leave my comfort zone, and I think that it helps me in achieving, in the end, a better quality of life. I feel that, above all, it has made me mentally strong, has taught me how to keep up my health, and my physical shape has improved."
