The Young and The Old

U.S. Army adHello, I am a student here in America. I go to school and have lived a pretty average life. The reason I write this is because I have seen hypocrisy within our country. Too often we here of countries using military propaganda, and too often our media demonizes them for this. If you are American or visited our country chances are you have seen first hand what our media is like. While I lived in this country I have seen hundreds of military ads. In movie previews there are military glorifying music videos; on billboards, poster, and busses alike. All countries glorify their militaries through strategies like propaganda. “War is when the old trick the young into doing horrible things.” So when the recruiters come for your child and use programs like the ROTC, just be sure that they are aware of what the sign up for.
