Military benefits

June 18, 2008

Re "Activists seek to counter military recruiting pitch," letters, June 14

To those who want to restrict the access of military recruiters to high school students, I offer this challenge.

Visit any high school campus, public or private, rich area or poor. Observe for 15 minutes during lunch, or any other non-class time. Then tell me that most of the young people you see would not be much better off with some discipline, responsibility and a little self-sacrifice in their lives.

Sadly, the military is probably the last institution willing and able to deliver these rapidly disappearing commodities.
