The shittier the family the more likely they will go as well. I hear it time and time again, once you are 18 get the fuck out. Hmmm, why would this be when a family is meant to stick together to help each other? We see it in movies, "don't go daddy it will just be mommy and me and then the (bad dude) will come rape us all while your at war bc your dictator has such a small dick he can't settle an argument without tricking good people to kill each other."

Just to add to this, you ever watch Game of Thrones or any war movie and wonder the motivation for the scrubs that go first in line? People LOVE that shit, they wanna recreate killing people as if they have talent and their subordination is such a great value. Anyway, send those people off, maybe the elite have something here tbh....

I wonder if I could stand outside of a recruiter's office and hand out community college financial aid flyers.

My understanding is that the college aid the military ends up giving you isn't very good either.

Iamsosmart: My reasons were numbers one and two on your list. A third reason was to see something of the world besides my own state. And, as every nineteen-year-old knows, you are immortal.
