We here often think- and say it outright, when having to deal with the younger generation’s shenanigans and whims -that the mandatory military service which used to be in place up until about 15 years ago was (and would still be) a good thing as it acted as an outlet for the sometimes too much hot air in the youngsters heads; it also taught them a little humility and a thing or two about human nature and human value. Also, the period of 9 to 16 months of service helped some boys to break loose of their mother’s skirt, as the fathers didn’t get much involved, if at all, in their sons' education.
(As a side note -since you seem to have a small tooth against women- military service was mandatory for all girls who were university students and in some other type of schools too. I was one of them, I’m not talking hearsay here. My mother was also one of them, she even outranked my father in military degree -it used to make my father go berserk sometimes:)).
