It would take a week long seminar to talk about this one, and everything from psychology to school indoctrination to the military entertainment complex to other propaganda, financial reasons, family tradition or pressure. In some places of course people are forced to join. Some people are disillusioned and lost after school, looking for escape, identity, belonging, income, and opportunity for more schooling and so on. Some people join out of genuine belief that they're helping their country, like Pat Tillman. Some people join, like someone I knew, for as little incentive as a travel bag with the Army logo on it.
