In Deuteronomy 20:8 we read,

"The man who is faint of heart let him depart and return to his house so that he might not make his brother's hearts melt like his heart."

This passage teaches a simple truth – that a fighting force that consists of soldiers who want to be in the fight no matter the risk or cost, are far more powerful than a greater quantity of soldiers, some of who do not want to be there.

The will supersedes simple numbers. The collective will is more powerful than sheer numbers.

This passage supports the United States Military's contention that an "All Volunteer Force" is superior to a force comprised of volunteers and draftees.
