Every year in April, Thailand holds a conscription lottery to its citizens, when they reach the legal age of 21. Both male citizens and trans females can enlist themselves in this military lottery system. Thailand has the provision for either serving six months voluntarily or join the military through this lottery.
Nevertheless, there are still many Thais who join the military out of their inclination, and that includes women who choose to be in the army. And for those, who join willingly, have the opportunity to choose the military branch they want to serve in.
Have you known this military practice earlier?
