Top Military Recruitment Lies

For the longest time I have been talking about the very article that I am linking to today.

It deals with the devious manners used by the recruiters to get young people to sign away their lives! Alternet.org has just published an article excerpted from Army of None: Strategies to Counter Military Recruitment, End War and Build a Better World

published by Seven Stories Press, August 2007.

Top military recruitment facts

1. Recruiters lie.
2. The military contract guarantees nothing.
3. Advertised signing bonuses are bogus.
4. The military won’t make you financially secure.
5. Money for college ($71,424 in the bank?).
6. Job training.
7. War, combat, and your contract.
