Unworkable, but one can dream. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Starship_troopers

One can dream, like Heinlein did. Serve the needs of all of us for a few years and here's your right to vote and benefits. Or do the civilian option - be a medic, doctor, school-teacher or cop or firefighter or something that's good for society and underpaid.

Or opt out.

Unfortunately this would work about as well as Communism. But one can dream.
