Two things. Firstly, technically, 10 is correct. I have had this happen to several clients, including one recently. What happens is the court "strongly suggests" one to join the military in order to avoid a jail sentence. It's similar to what happens with a psychiatric hospitalization, at times. Someone signs in voluntarily. Why? Because they are told that if they do not, they will be committed. Are they being legally order to sign in? No, but the implication is clear. That is what happened to 10's son, and many other people that we all know. So, in this sense, 10 is correct. Her son joined the military as an alternative to going to jail.
Moderator's Warning: The personal stuff needs to stop. 10 has requested this. I am "strongly suggesting" it...if you know what I mean. Think of me as the court system, suggesting that you do one thing, in order to avoid something else.
Back to the topic.
