A 20 year-old Swedish woman was sentenced to two weeks in prison for refusing to complete her military service. Military service is voluntary for Swedish women and this girl joined at age 18. It took a year for her to finally be inducted, and by that time she had changed her mind to enter the Air Force. She informed her regimental commander of her change in viewpoint but was told there was no going back on the enlistment. So, she was sent to jail.

Sweden has not been at war for a hundred years, it has no enemies and life is peaceful. So, who the heck cares if a single woman or man changes their mind and decides the military is not for them. Loosen up Swedish military, you’re at peace.
