    And hope they'll goad the conscience of those who sign up.

    Heck, there could be demonstrations against the recruitment--other people using their free speech rights.

      indeed there have been, with regularity.  However, I'm of the view that the protestors often (while meaning well) get off track.  For isntance, when I was in law school, the chanting moved from "Hey Hey Ho Ho! Discrimination's Got To Go!" (a sentiment I wholly agree with) to "Hey Hey Ho Ho! The Military's Got To Go!" (a sentiment with which I have some problems).  "Hey Hey Ho Ho! (Name of Recruiter)'s Got To Go!" (which IMHO is just wrong.)

      Also idiotic was the idea that every gay student (none of whom had any interest in serving in JAG) would fill the slots first.  If people want to serve as a JAG, the last thing we should do is stand in their way.
