In Brazil, it is compulsory for every male citizen to enlist in the army as soon as you are 18 years old. However, it does not necessarily mean that you will have to serve in the army. Some people have enlisted but have never served during the whole life. A lot depends on the city you have enlisted in, the current situation within the army, as well as your desire to get a degree and go to college or university. What is more, a lot of people are exempted from serving because of excess of contingency.

What is vital to highlight is that as soon as a person is exempted, one of the documents is given to them which prove that they have in fact enlisted and got exempted. In case a person cannot present these documents, they will not be able to apply to college, to obtain a Brazilian passport or to get a job at the municipal, federal or state government.

Speaking about the period of time during which a person is required to serve, it typically lasts for twelve months. Surely, the training program requires a person to demonstrate superb physical results, and a lot of attention is paid to being physically fit and healthy. It does not matter whether a person attended school or chose homeschooling. Enlisting is obligatory for every male except for those who are unfit due to medical reasons.

One is free to apply for an undergraduate program and for scholarship at any educational institution as soon as they have enlisted. Typically, a student enlists while they are already studying. Quite often they do not even have to find out more about the training regimes within the army simply because they country may not require their service at the moment. If that is the case, one can freely concentrate on learning and dealing with their hectic academic curriculum. Nothing will disrupt their schooling process.

If you are currently studying at college, you are probably worried about acquiring useful knowledge or figuring out how to pay tuition and not about getting military training. If that is the case, there is no doubt the task of writing a 500 word essay is something that makes you feel frustrated, especially when the deadline is soon. If you have no idea how to write a 500 word essay but your teacher has assigned this task, there is a lot for you to do. The most important thing in regards to writing a 500 word essay is being able to meet the word limit. If it is stated that it has to be a 500 word essay, you should follow the instructions provided by your professor. If you have been given the option of choosing the topic yourself, feel free to write about anything you like, even about teaching pedagogy.

What is significant to highlight is regards to the military service and education in Brazil is that as soon as you have enlisted, you are free to choose any profession you want and to select any major you like. Even if you serve in the army, it does not mean that you will have to continue your career in this field. Apart from that, there is some sort of a cultural revolution in Brazil at the moment which has its positive influence of the world of politics in the country as well. Brazil has become an important player on the international arena a while ago. Within the country, the way in which the society views the state has the impact on the strategies that are being implemented, as well as on the decisions made by policy makers. Thus, such issues as war and peace as well as country development are viewed from a different angle at the moment. If the government of the country manages to comprehend the cultural issues that exist in Brazil right now, it will be easier for them to come up with policies that are not likely to fail in the near future. What is more, effective policies will make the life of all its citizens better.
