Mandatory military service has seemingly good intentions. However, enforcing it may be in direct conflict with the private interests of civilians. The time that ought to be allotted for other endeavors (productivity) will, instead, be allotted for participating in matters that are against one's will.
Military service should be voluntary instead of mandatory. This is to ensure that participants exercise their choice to take part or to not take part in military service. This is also ensure that the unified mindset to protect their nation remains to be consistently upheld by parties who have consented to participate.

It would be a positive. However, I would add, what other countries who have “mandatory military service” offers, as an alternative. Countries with such programs, in fact I used to live in one of those countries, also offers community service as well. So, if you don’t want to serve the traditional military program, you can, for example, work in an elderly home and take care of old people for a year. Or, you could work in a community center for the homeless or work in a program for disadvantaged youth.
I’ve felt for a long time, The US would greatly benefit by having such a program, particularly because i feel teenagers are screwing their own futures up with their entitled attitudes, and not experiencing what it means to experience self-growth via being selfless and working for a greater good
