10 Excellent Reasons Not to Join the Military

Title   10 Excellent Reasons Not to Join the Military

Book Condition   New

Seller ID   5

A short, snappy handbook detailing why the military may need you, but you really don't need it. "The Army's top recruiter, already struggling to meet his quotas this year, said ….that 2006 would be even harder, and perhaps the toughest year for recruiting since the all-volunteer force began in 1973."—The New York Times, May 13, 2005 So you're walking out of school and parked at the gate is a new, bright red Ford Mustang with a hulk of a man in the front seat. He's sporting a razor cut and wraparound shades. Before you can pass he's out of the car and blocking your path. "Mind if I take a minute"—he has you by the arm now—"to tell you about the great life in today's Army and why you should seriously think about signing up?" The armed forces are having a tough time attracting new recruits lately, in no small part due to the mess in Iraq. Young people are getting wise to the many excellent reasons not to join the U.S. Military, and this handy book brings them all together, combining accessible writing with hard facts and devastating personal testimony. Contributors with firsthand experience point out the dangers facing soldiers, describe the tricks used by recruiters, and emphasize that there really are other options, even in a sluggish economy. It's essential reading for anyone thinking of signing up. Over 2,000 American soldiers have been killed in Iraq, and over 14,000 have been wounded. • Nearly 100,000 civilians have been killed in Iraq as a result of the U.S. invasion. • One in six soldiers returning from Iraq experiences mental health problems. • Two-thirds of all recruits receive no college funding from the military, and only 15 percent graduate with a four-year degree. • According to the VA, 90 percent of recent women veterans reported experiencing sexual harassment; a third were raped.
