Forget National Service, I believe that everyone should be legally required to do one (1) year’s customer-facing work upon reaching the majority.
We may not be better-defended, perhaps, but we’ll be miles ahead in simple human empathy.

Spoiler: The next Planet of the Apes movie will focus on Dawn’s sister, Julie.
(You’ll never read that movie title in the same way again)
Look at it this way:
I’ve had a plaster-cast on my leg for 18 years.
The cast enabled me to walk while my leg was damaged, helping me function, and letting me have a life. It also however blocked the sensation of things touching the leg, and stopped me flexing my knee, so I tended to walk into things and often lost my balance.
Now, the cast has been removed.
This means I feel sensations again and I no longer walk into things because I can’t feel them, I can also flex my knee again.
However, because the cast was there for so long, the leg has forgotten how to walk without a support [wait, knees move?!], and under the cast the leg’s muscles have atrophied, reducing its ability to support itself.
The human to whom the leg belongs (me) now needs to get help re-learning how to walk on a newly flexible leg and has to undertake careful exercise to re-strengthen the leg without straining it,
However, _without_ the cast in the way, The leg is now able to complete its recovery with safe exercise and careful practice.
