View Full Version : Honorable Job

I have sometimes read on here that being in the army (more specifically, the U.S. army) right now is not an honorable job. Now, I'm not trying to argue or anything, but I'm just curious as to why you think that. These people are voluntarily joining the army and risking their life to help protect America's freedom (or so I've been told). So, what is it that doesn't make the job the honorable job that it supposedly claims to be? I'm not saying I dissagree, I just wonder why you think that and I really want to be enlighted.

It is an honorable job. That doesn't mean the people doing that job are honorable individuals though.

I don't remember reading that here.

Honor is different from culture to culture. And has different degrees. I would find it hard to give things like job titles, a description applicable only to people though. Were they honorable in their enlisting in the army? Maybe, it would depend largely on their reasons for enlisting wouldn't it? Not just because they enlisted.
