I was brought up that if you couldn't make it/afford college or get a really good job otherwise via trade school, luck, family or whatever that your last option would be to join the military. Military was always the last choice. If you can lure people in with good motor skills(a lot of gamers) go ahead cause I'll tell you one thing the military needs people with quick reflexes.
"The ACLU has alleged that the game was designed to reach young teens online that are legally protected from recruitment attempts"
There is something called ROTC, and the fact that recruiters are in every high school, both targeted at teenagers. I think the ACLU is just bored.
I'm curious I explained how the military was perceived in my family, if yer reading this feel free to post what your family thought when you were growing up, I'm really curious if anybody else was raised the same way.
