    but not during a war. Can you imagine, if you tell the  truth, "yeah, days after you get out of basic training you will be sent to war."

    •  Yeah, but (0+ / 0-)

      isn't recruiting in peacetime a bit of a bait and switch?  If someone is volunteering to die for their country, they should be aware that wars can start any time ... (cf. 2001) ....

      Boy, do I need a stimulus package.

    •  To an extent I agree with you (0+ / 0-)

      I remember supervising one person, and saying to my assistant that "there's someone who could benefit from a tour in the military - but not now."  

      I think that I have had enough of you telling me how things will be. Today I choose a new way to go ... and it goes through you!
