It doesn't make any sense to me. I mean, why we have to go through all these terrible experiences. Maybe it is a valuable memory to someone, but it never was to me. I don't know what everybody thinks about it, but I hated it! I went through three military trainings, when I began junior high school, high school and university, respectively, and each was the worst time I had during my stay in each school, and the irony is they are hardly military. We're merely trained in marching and walking moves, and it never makes any sense to me how we're gonna defend our country with this perfectly synchronized walking pace. Our trainers were soldiers and they were usually rude and very unfair when dealing with us. I was constantly being scolded and criticized during the training even when I was definitely obeying.
