The army for the country it is necessary, in particular need to recruit young motivated people, koltorye want to give all of himself to the state. Guys who do not want to serve, it is best not to force, because of them no good will not. Of course this is a prestigious thing, because the army opened the doors of many works, because employers also want to know how all people and especially those who take on the work of the guards. Thank you zha article, perhaps it will take something useful by many people.
