As this question is in the "Canada In World War Two" folder, I would imagine the person wants to know about the specifics of the conscrition crisis in Canada, during that war. During WW2, Canada had two types of soldiers, those that "volunteered to fight" and those that "refused to fight" The first group went overseas and fought and represented Canada very well, while the second group sat on their asses in Canada, being paid and fully trained, but refusing to fight. They were called "Zombies" and most were from Quebec. Cowards every one. Even today, Canadian WW2 veterans have very little good to say about the Province of Quebec and the cowards that were the ZOMBIES. Jim Bunting. Toronto.

Conscripted soldiers sometimes have lower morale and less motivation than soldiers who volunteered. Conscription is usually unpopular and can lead to anger, resentment, and an increase in the number of soldiers who go AWOL.

Many conscripts went to other bases, Germany, etc. If you are investigating the "draft dodgers" then I think that a general amnesty was granted in the late 1970's. I came to Sweden in 1970 but was not conscripted as some of the Americans who came here then were (There was a lottery and my birth date was way down the list).

They had to hand in their weapons, take the oath never to make war on the United States again, and then they were allowed to go home without threat of hangings, jailings or persecution.

Yes, during WW1 and WW2, there was no conscriprtion (compulsory military service). Soldiers went to war by choice. But in the Vietnam war, conscription was introduce in Australia and the soldiers were forced for the Vietnam war to go and fight.

Medics in WW2 did the same thing medics did in all of the other wars--they helped the soldiers in the units they were assigned to. Their job was to go into battle with the soldiers and to treat wounds as they happened and to help the wounded soldiers get back from the battlefront. When the soldiers were not in battle, they acted as medical personnel to treat any minor wounds or problems the soldiers might have had.

Well there were many soldiers used in the WW1 but the main ones are volunteers, these are people who volunteer to go for the war, there are conscripts who are soldiers that were meant to be going into the war and lastly there were boy soldiers how were soldiers that younger that the actual age to be a soldier.

It depends on how you define hurt. Sometimes, soldiers would go into women's homes and rape them. The same thing happened in Vietnam.

Nurses went to war to comfort any soldiers who got shot or hurt during the war.

Not all soldiers got to go home. some died, some just stayed just to fight, you know.

Many soldiers went to war to, Serve their country, Pay for school, and some went because that was their only option. I hope this helped.

Your question needs to say who "they" refers to. Soldiers? Civilians? Who?

Trenches are an underground hideaway where the soldiers go if they are injured

It was how jack and annie go back to the Civil war and help wounded soldiers and learn about the Civil War

All soldiers did not want to go to war. Nor is it likely that any event could cause them all to wish it so.

Many Americans did indeed leave their jobs during the Civil War. They left the jobs partly because they were conscripted to service while other volunteered for the cause.
