Separate issue: doesn't matter whether the soldier/sailor/airman is a conscript or a volunteer. Ordering that person to die is a deprivation of the unalienable right to Life and therefore is not permitted.

I suppose if we had a volunteer army and a bunch of guys volunteered to charge into a hail of bullets, that would be okay.
