I always thought of myself as a pacifist, but somehow I think if I was forced to be in a war, I might be a great strategist (not much of a soldier, but still). How about you guys? Would you make a good soldier? If yes, what exactly are your qualities that makes you fit to become one? If no, why not? I'm interested in your answers.

If I were thrown in a war, I think that I would have not made a good soldier. Haha! Well, first of all, I have a really small body build. I'm thin in fact so I think I won't really pass the physical aspect. Also, I'm really scared. I easily get frightened. And also I don't have the heart to kill people... But I think if I were thrown in a war as a nurse (i'm a student nurse by the way), I'd make a good nurse. I'd nurse the sick and wounded soldiers. I'll make them well. ^_^

I don't like war & don't believe in the act of war. All any war is about is men trying to over rule others & make them believe in a different way of thinking. But as being forced to fight??? I would fight to protect myself, I would not just stand by & let myself be killed. If needed I would have made a good soldier for I am loyal, I believe in honor, justice & truth. I am the type of person when I am out and about I notice my surroundings very closely for there is too many crooked people in the world. So I pay close attention when I am out of my house and I am a light sleeper too, LOL!!!

I so would not of made a good soldier. I could even pretend that i am capable of taking another life. Even if it was just something i came up with and it was used to kill someone i couldnt handle it.
