Hooray! Now Military recruiters are coming to our school to talk to hard sell the armed forces to our children! Were parents notified or asked permission? At least we're not pretending that the public school system anything more that a funnel into the US military. Nice piece of journalism by the way. Did you simply reprint the Marines PR copy?

Did your child leave his/her plastic bubble?
This is probably more exercise than these kids have seen in some time...gym class, what a joke.
Kudos to the Marines for a good ole fashion workout (as good as it can be)

Believe it or not pansy man some parents are actually proud that their children would like to server their country in the military. I am sure you and and "widdle" precious will live through the mean old Marine having him do some jumping jacks... Your wife must gag every time you touch her... Now I know you will find this shocking but the military has actually had a JR-ROTC program in many High Schools for over 30 years. I know the horror..you probably should sit down before you faint.

Pansy man? Thats a very articulate, well thought-out argument. I'm glad you're proud. My kid will not be a pawn in a chess game. Who's up for 10 more years in AfPak? The Where's Osama game is still going strong!

I hope your kid joins the Marines and makes his country proud...more than we can say for you.
What are you going to do if he/she comes home and says that they enlisted? Huh?
Are you going to put your foot down and discourage them in regards to their decision to support their country....I should hope not, that wouldn't be "good parental support".

My kids know how proud I am of them. They also know what an empty claim it is to earn the pride of their country by killing another. I hope you and your children all live happy healthy lives and never have to experience the horrors of war. The children in Iraq and Afghanistan are not so lucky. God bless you.

You didn't answer the question, tough guy/girl.Would you tell your child they are wrong in a choice to defend their country....

So you are saying your child is going to be a bottom feeder, like yourself, an ungrateful "non troop supporting" american?
You are probably one of those freaks that gets their panties in a bunch at the sight of an american flag.

Tisk tisk tisk.......

You think all the soldiers of this country do is kill people? You have been misinformed.
Yes, that is a fact of war, but look at the other great things they do, besides giving you the freedom to post your garbage on here.
They are in Hati, helping with the devistation down there.
They are in other countries when needed making sure the people get what they need to make it and helping to make their living situation better.
They were at the world trade towers on that horrible day and for weeks after.
I would think that if my child was in the military that would be something that would make me hold my head high with pride.
Heck, I'm proud of the people serving and that have served whether I know them or not.
You have a great day and enjoy your freedom that you do not support people fighting for.

Yes, look how much work the National Guard did around here last year to help clean up after the ice storm. They came down my street in a brand new extended cab pickup with 6 guys in it. Stopped halfway down the street, one guy got out to direct a 3 point turn and they left.

But its good to bring the Marines into the school for an educational exercise lecture, encourage them to sign up, go to exotic foreign lands, meet new people and kill them.

Hahahaha - just kidding, actually they sucker these young kids to sign up for extended contracts so that they can make their numbers and get their recruitment bonuses.

I HEARD ABOUT THIS WORKOUT PROGRAM THE MARINES HAD AT THE SCHOOL. IT DOESN'T SEEM THAT THE MARINES TRIED TO RECRUIT THESE KIDS. IN FACT I DON'T THINK THAT THEY EVEN TALKED ABOUT RECRUITING. HAVE ANY OF YOU ALL EVEN TALKED TO THE KIDS WHO PARTICAPTED IN THIS "YOUTH PHYSICAL FITNESS PROGRAM" TO SEE IF THE RECRUITERS ACTUALLY TRIED TO RECRUIT OR PROMISE THEM ANY THING AT ALL? ALSO I DON'T BELIEVE THAT THE MARINE RECRUITERS GET A BONUS FOR ENLISTING ANYONE. BUT THEN AGAIN WHAT DO I KNOW. WHAT I DO KNOW IS THAT THEY RECIEVE THE BIGGEST GIFT OF ALL IN KNOWING THAT THEY HELPED CHANGE A YOUNG MAN OR WOMANS LIFE TO DO "BIGGER AND BETTER THINGS". BUT YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO SAY WE NEED A GENERATION TO FIGHT FOR OUR FREEDOM BUT NOT MY KIDS OR THEIR GENERATION. NOW I AM A RETIRED MARINE LUNENBURGIAN, WHY ARE YOU COMPARING THE NATIONAL GUARD TO THE MARINES. COME ON NOW EVEN YOU KNOW THERE IS A BIG DIFFERENCE.
