Would I go to war?

I’m old and have trouble hearing. Somehow I think I would be rejected.

It would depend if it was a war that I believed in or not. It would all depend on the circumstances.

I would go. I don’t

I would go. I don’t believe in the validity of the current wars, but I couldn’t justify not fighting against something like the Nazis. Reluctantly, I’d have to go.

Honestly I don’t know. It’s a situation I’d have to experience to know what I’d do.
