Poor recruiters. They must be getting really desperate now. Today, I got something from the US Army offering a free messenger bag if you join. Mmmm.... let me think about that. You know, that might be more appealing than the $70,000 for college after you serve, or a $20,000 enlistment bonus (both mentioned once you open up the card). Or "the chance to travel". Somehow, I don't think I want to travel where they'd probably want me to travel. A little 18 month vacation in Iraq anyone? And then there's "the chance to qualify for over 150 careers". I guess it's a chance because they don't want to guarantee you'll survive that vacation.
