Historically in war, we take young men the government did not feed, raise or educate, and we take only the healthiest of them. Their servitude is often involuntary, which we aren't supposed to like in principle. If they survive the experience, they get to enjoy what's left of their health and years.

Sometimes we do things because we recognize a necessity and don't have any better ideas.
