An army officer writes a number on the arm of Ui Piyanart, a 20-year-old transgender, during an army draft held at a school in Klong Toey, the dockside slum area in Bangkok April 7, 2013. Men over 21 must serve in the army, which has always been at the forefront of Thai politics but has come in for some rare criticism since 91 people died in anti-government protests in 2010. Those who volunteer serve six months, but others choose the annual lottery, which goes on for 10 days in recruitment centres around Thailand. Nobody wants a red card, which means serving for two years, with the chance of a posting in the dangerous south. Only those not considered physically capable of service, the mentally ill and those who have significantly altered their physical appearance - such as transgenders, who are more visible in Thai society than in many other nations - are exempt. Piyanart was not drafted. Picture taken April 7, 2013. REUTERS/Damir Sagolj (THAILAND - Tags: MILITARY EDUCATION SOCIETY TPX IMAGES OF THE DAY)

New conscripts march as they depart from Russia's Siberian city of Barnaul, November 20, 2007. Russia inherited a huge army from the Soviet Union. Designed to face up to Cold War enemies and reluctant towards reforms, it still relies heavily on obsolete equipment and poorly trained conscripts, critics say. REUTERS/Andrei Kasprishin (RUSSIA)

A newly enrolled Bulgarian soldier receives an uniform on the first day of their service at an army base in the city of Pleven, some 160km(100 miles) from the capital Sofia, March 27, 2007. Bulgaria's last conscripts enter the army after the country's parliament approved last year a law abolishing military conscription. This paves the way for a fully professional army and ends a feared rite of passage for young men in the NATO member state. REUTERS/Nikolay Doychinov (BULGARIA)

A North Korean soldier uses a pair of binoculars to watch the South Korean side in the truce village of Panmunjom in the demilitarised zone separating the two Koreas, about 55km (31 miles) north of Seoul, December 22, 2006. Six-party talks aimed at persuading North Korea to abandon its nuclear weapons programme headed into a final day on Friday, with officials holding out little hope of reaching a deal on first steps towards that goal.
