From Counter-Recruitment.org

Most people think they are joining the military for a single 4 year term, although they are usually told by recruiters that they could serve up to 8 years due to being recalled from the "ready reserve".

What recruiters probably don't spend too much time telling potential recruits about is Section 9 Part C on the back of the enlistment contract which says: "In the event of war, my enlistment in the Armed Forces continues until six (6) months after the war ends, unless my enlistment is ended sooner by the President of the United States."

The launcher has since December claimed a commanding position on the lawn at the U.S. Naval Surface Warfare Center's Carderock facility, a science and engineering center overlooking the Potomac River.
