"Guy's who can kill face to face with no psyche damage are typically convicted felons before they enter the military." What a clever, knowledgeable statement. When your a convicted felon, what's the first right of many that you lose? The right to possess a firearm. Now since all are Armed Services bear arms, how could one enlist if he was forbidden to possess a firearm? No branch of service will accept a convicted felon. In WWII they tried an experiment with 1,000 felons that volunteered for service. It was a disaster. They would not accept discipline, stole from their fellow soldiers and deserted in large numbers. It was never tried again. John, you simply made this whole thing up because YOUR a felon and are looking for some shred of pride by being "A tough con" who would make a good soldier. Forget it. You had your chance and wimped out.
