Patriotism may be generated by the formation of active and informed citizens and by the development of civic conscience, compassion and tolerance in a world of multiple diversities, which coexist and impose tight observation on extremes. The patriotic behavior, reflected by solidarity, involvement, engagement and identification with general interests, expands and compresses at the same time. To speak of patriotism today is an audacious engagement, meant to reveal tensions between universal and national, or between global and local. The current study aims at identifying the modern configuration of the military young people's axiological consciousness and the place that 'country' occupies in it. This endeavor sustains the necessity of cultivating an authentic patriotism, purified from nationalistic tendencies.
