He Had Better Things To Do

Bob Miller
Apr 9, 2008
If you are still in high school, you may have already considered joining the military so that paying for college becomes easier. Hundreds of advertisements from the military promise just that, an opportunity to put your dreams of college on hold in order to get experience and earn financial aid from the government instead.

Unfortunately, these recruiters (military sales people) forget to tell you that joining the military doesn't mean you will be serving your country. Putting your life on the line so Exxon-Mobil can harvest the largest profits of any corporation in the history of our country at the expense of our nation's reputation might be looked on by history as rather foolish. There's a good reason why veterans are committing to anti-war movements today, and now is the time to really learn what politics is about. All we're suggestion is that you get a second opinion. At least, check out all your options. Just about any reason under the sun for not serving in the military, even when there was a draft, will do. When asked why he had requested so many military deferments from the Vietnam War, Vice-President Cheney said, "I had better things to do."

The Downside of Enlisting in the Armed Forces

Recruiters are well-trained to show you all the 'benefits' of joining the military after high school, and will go out of their way to make you believe this is your best choice for financing college. While your fellow classmates are succeeding at vocational colleges or their preferred four-year educational institutions, you could be looking forward to thousands of dollars of debt, limited choices in a college after you complete your time with the armed forces, and even fewer options to get ahead in life with a degree that you really wanted. How is this a 'better' choice?

Where the Money Really Is - What Army Recruiters Don't Tell You

Over $6.6 billion of financial aid is left untouched each year, simply because students fail to submit completed applications and apply for the appropriate programs available. All it takes is some online research and filling out different applications; in most cases, you'll need references and other documents to support your application, but after that, you can have access to thousands of dollars in grant and scholarship money.

Are you really ready to leave the biggest decision of your life in the hands of recruiters? Don't let the false hopes and lies convince you that joining the military is your only choice for college funding. Decide to 'study war no more' and join the anti-war movement so that you can get the education you deserve - and save your life. Kid, don't die for a lie. Consider this; the name War Department was changed to the Department of Defense, nothing else was changed. The number 1 job of the DOD is selling arms. The number 1 and number 2 duties of the staff at all US Embassies are spying and selling arms. Our embassies are nothing more than the local offices of the Pentagon and CIA. We are, and have been for decades, the largest arms dealers in the world. That is what we do best. We leave the manufacturing of most non-war products to others. Don't die for a lie.
