Besides--I would not think they are talking about being "dead" in the literal sense--but rather in a spiritual or political sense.
And that is a tough one again...
I don't think I could ever truly understand why a person would enlist in the military(or the police force for that matter).Those institutions represent ideals which make me shudder.
But--the military recruitment campaign deliberately targets those in lower socio-economic positions--offering a way out of their predicament.
A deal with the devil as far as I'm concerned--but I'd certainly hate to blame the victim.
