Depends on the order. I would serve in dangerous areas. I think I could shoot a person who is rushing to run out of a quarantine area but I dont know. I wouldnt just indescriminately shoot people though (ie, I would follow lawful orders).
Don't take it personally though, ignorance of such facts is something of a running theme of this thread.
I don't like it.
I have also noticed that putting one's foot in one's mouth up to their knee is also common.

Also, despite the ranting from the irrational mob above, they're not even being posted to the heart of the affected area but on the outskirts, providing logistic support and training (doesn't mean there isn't some risk but it's a significantly different prospect to the rabid fantasies some people seem to be creating).
However, as the virus mutates that could change. I shudder to speculate what an outbreak in a US metropolis like NYC, DC or Miami would look like.
So this qualifies as a national security threat IMO. Obama is doing the right thing for once. Fight it over there before we end up fighting it on our shores.

I don't get the question. How would the military be fighting Ebola?
