All eighteen year olds should do national service
Some people think that all 18 year-olds should perform of national or community service before they start college or a paying job, but some people is disagree with that.

Some suggest allowing women to serve national service, others have proposed increasing education for soldiers. Still others suggest returning to the military plan. In the face of the strong need for more personnel, however, many have called for raising the age of military registration for young men from 18 years old to the age of 21.

Mandatory military service is a very old form of public service. In most countries practicing mandatory military service one joins the service age of eighteen years or after competing high school studies , before joining the universities. The period of the service varies from one country to another with some serving for only six months whereas in other countries one has to serve for two years . After the service one usually has the choice of either joining the national army or continuing with the civilian life.

I think we, as a society, should do a better job to encourage in young people a sense of emphaty to other human beings. Today's young people go through life feeling special and entitled without paying much attention to others who are really suffering. However, I think young people need to understand and to be inform about that, not punished of community service before college.

In conclusions i would like to say, that if all 18 year-olds should perform of national or community service, that, it’s should make all young people to be more honorable respectful, disciplined, hard working and also prepares individuals in life early enough.
