Conscription is the norm in many countries.

In many old world countries, the whole total war thing is not just some theoretical thing that could happen but something that happened at some point.

So if you need to mobilize every able bodied male even 6 months training a couple of years ago will make it easier to get them up to speed if need be and this is like a shit hits the fan situation.

Some countries have reserve systems, where people who are civilians go in periodically to train, like once or twice a year.

And for the conscripts themselves, it is usually either great fun playing war and getting drunk all the time or maybe they might even learn some responsibility and discipline and not being a whiny bitch. Also, often, it's their first time away from mommy and as such could be seen as a rite of passage of some sort.
