Have your countries military ever done something questionable that you don't see the point in them doing? It can be everything from a marketing stunt to something completely else.

Something like that happened to me.


They the Swedish military sent me a mirror... No, I'm not kidding... They sent me a freaking mirror...



So, have something similar or even more stupid ever happened in your country?

I adore your frequent use of synonymously pretentious adjectives.

My bad.. The other one was a noun.

Free water bottles and stickers, "just sign up for US Army new settlers! :D"

...in the high school gym.

Wait, did that really happen? Didn't they handle it in some other way?

That's how they recruit high schoolers. Throw some free stickers and a key chain to boot, that will surely get em.

I've seen adds asking me how much of a legend I am and how they don't pay tax.

Well all military marketing kind of irks me because of my somewhat unique situation with it, but the standout would have to be sponsoring a car in NASCAR.

Nope, don't think so.

So... you don't support your country military then...
Is not questionable the job of the recruitment center of the military now at day, the lack of personnel is almost constantly

I can`t recall how many advertisement of U.S army I have seen in Xbox live even inside game add-ons of Halo 3.

In the state a saw and add calling Instead of shooting in schools and hunting drugs


How many of you would do the sacrifice of giving up your commodities for grant the commodities of you equals?

They swarm the high school in this city like flies to a carcass. Setting up tables in the cafeteria and talking to students as they pass through, handing out pamphlets, water bottles, keychains, and sometimes doing work-out events for hoodies. When I was in HS they would also set up a booth during the college fair and flag down the kids who had bad grades, offering them opportunities and showing them how great the army is.

It was kind of weird, but I guess that's one way to get your recruits.

I have no problem with it. I mean, I learned more about computer programming and database administration in the navy and that was my job. Well, I was in the navy...not in the army.

I have done it, and if I could turn back time, I'd do it again. Less that 1% of the US population makes up all branches of service, both active and reserve. I tell my friends and family all the time "There comes a point in life where you either have to nut up, or shut when it comes to standing up for your country. Both for the good and the bad."

I actually seen this in a magazine.

The ad was about this NCIS show with a caption "are you guilty?"
