By "ok" do you mean it would be okay with you if I respectfully declined?

Because at one point, I was months from doing just that. By then, I had been briefed by my father (a 30 year USAF/USAAC vet who flew a general & CIA into vietnam during secret missions) not to go into that "boondoggle" & my brother, who did his year in vietnam during '69 and lost all his teeth to the jungle rot there and was not being considered for treatment for his poor health by our gov't (pre V/A).

There are times when a man must stand up and call bullshit on his gov't.

I am guessing you don't and won't, but hey, that is the diff between me and you, is that if this were the 1700's for example, you would still be a british colonial & I would be an american patriot.
