Yet another really good item from Stryker: So you want to join the military… Besides the overall coolness of his pointing out how military recruiters are (by intention) indistinguishable from commercial salespeople, I really liked this part:
So you want to join the military? The first question that naturally pops into your head is, “Which service should I join?” Well, what do you want? The answer to that question ought to help put you on the right path. Do you want to get into the thick of it? Do you want to enjoy a structured life or a more lenient one? What kind of job or what type of training are you looking for? Are you looking for a career that’ll translate into a good paying job on the outside or do you want to blow shit up?
Heh. Sir! Blow shit up, sir!
