    Yes P.R. that is how things are done in this country; buying our youth for a billion dollars (recruitment lobby) promising paradise, but instead end up dead or crazy, for all our stupid un-needed invasions, which has only created more and more people in those countries who hate our guts.

    I have many friends who unfortunately share her story, but this article is a bit deceitful because the military is no longer trying to get as many poor teenagers to join their ranks. In fact, all of the armed forces are currently turning down over 80% of applicants because they aren't needed anymore.
