It depends on what type of war.

War against the taliban.
War against child/animal abuse.
War against cancer.

the list could be endless.

Question was way too open ended, so I am the lone "yes" because there are conditions under which I would enlist to go to war.

Said no to this one. My grandpa was in WWII, and my dad was in the National Guard, but I can honestly say that I wouldn't last a day in the army.
