Every man in Germany has to join the military service for eighteen months or serve an alternative social service However an examination is given to those men who intend to render the alternative service that lasts 22 months Less than thirty percent of all those who take the exam pass the very demanding test The conscientious objectors have to prove that their moral beliefs dont allow them to use a weapon Discouraged by the high failing rate and the necessary time-consuming preparation a lot of young men dont even try the test The men who serve their military service have to cope with a totally new world The work conditions are physically very hard and the discipline is rigid The young soldiers also have to face an incisive change in their social life that sometimes can lead to serious emotional problems A lot of men are very unhappy in the period of their military service because they have to master so many challenges in the army and changes in their usual life Most of the men who serve the compulsory military service have just finished school or an education Some of them didnt have physical exercise for years Now they are confronted with a hard bodily drill that many cant handle Especially the first months are very difficult because the instructors try to get all the cadets to an equally high physical level The most severe exercises are the marches The soldiers have to walk between thirty and sixty miles To cope with such a distance in a specified time the men are forced to walk at high speed They even have to run special marked tracks Additionally they are obstructed by the baggage they have to carry weighing approximately forty pounds including gun and ammunition Sometimes a man collapses Instead of taking this soldier into an ambulance his comrades have to drag him with them Meanwhile the instructors sit comfortably in a jeep
