Is the military like prison?

Do soldiers have any freedom and rights? Can they move around freely?

    Nope, but you do have sensible restrictions. Keep in mind that the individual did chose to have such an onus upon their shoulders. A dog of the military.

    No,  it is not like prison.   People in the military are volunteers and if they do not like it they can simply finish their tour and get out.     What freedoms you may give up is for the common good of the nation.   That is something civilians just do not seem to grasp,    giving up something for yourself for the benefit of others.    Like wear a mask!!

    Of course not.  Who would voluntarily spend decades in prison?  You go to work, do your job, and go home almost every day.  Occasionally you get sent to some desert craphole for a few months,  but then you come home.

    Not even close unless you are a prison guard at Leavenworth.

    Not at all.  The military is much like any other government job, except that we wear uniforms so you can see who is boss.  Working conditions are very similar though.  I have been military for 43 years now, and I have freedom, rights, and can go where I like.

    That depends on where you go in the military and if there's a war going on.  My friend went to Okinawa, Japan and said it was fun, lots of hookers and good drugs.

    Military prison, by the way, is where soldiers who have committed offences are sent to serve out their sentence. In most respects it is similar to civilian prison. In my experience of the military, there was less freedom than civilian life, but still much more than prison.
