I'm not sure what you're disagreeing with.
Anything we do can go sour, whether it's enlisting, marrying, starting a business, anything.
When a man gets into a lousy marriage or business and comes out the other end he might have lost a lot, but he can't be said to have 'sacrificed'.
A person who got himself drafted or volunteered for the military and came back in a body bag or a wheelchair mightn't have figured on that being the price, but that's how it played out. Memorial Day was invented in 1882 as a day for remembering those it happened to.
Nothing much about that to disagree about.
Absorb the good, ignore the bad, weigh the ugly.
It's about number behavior.
Egos don't count.
