THanks guys for what you do.
Lets not go too overboard here. Not many people (and this goes for any branch) join because they plan on or want to get shot at. The US military is, and has been, advertising the armed forces as a way to get an education or money for an education so why would it be wrong for people to want to take advantage of that?
I know plenty of people who went in with the intention of getting an education out of it. Nothing wrong with that. Now IMO I think that someone should obviously know and understand that there are chances that they may be put in harms way at some point during those 4 years. And I think that they should be willing and proud to do that if it's asked. But there's nothing wrong with the main intention to be finance for an education.
It's like my recrutor told me- The Army is going to get what they want out you before you get want you want from them
