Sending your daughter off to be a " war fighter " was not what was suggested... and it would seem your wife has little understanding of what the military really is. The military has almost every other vocation that is in the real world. If your daughter was musicly inclined...she could well play in the Band...and not be in any more danger than if she were playing Carnegie hall.
Ultimately, You and your wife should be "guides"...and expose your daughter to as many options as possible...and let her make the informed decision that you would hope an ADULT would make.
Many things to do.

Big mistake. He was not ready and played and fooled around until dropping out.
He came home and asked me for a job.
I gave him every low-level dirty chitty job with the promise that that was all he was capable of earning, . . . and should be cut no slack from my master craftsmen just because he was my son. Am sure they delighted in that and in ways I fortunately never heard details.
Within less than a year he finally figured it out and eventually graduated with a 3.8 and consistently on the Dean's list at FAU.
He is now a very successful international wealth manager.
Bottom line, IMHO, is that most kids have to figure it out on their own and move on up from there.
