The Vanity Press: As Low As It Gets

The Vanity Press: As Low As It Gets

Technorati tags: ,

I'm somewhat speechless about this video. I worry for the soldiers who were brave enough to speak out about these high pressure tactics to get troops to re-enlist.

Add this to the stories about extending the tours of National Guard soldiers and it's a wonder they can get anyone to enlist in the first place. Can it really be that some units learned of the Pentagon's changes to deployment policies via relatives or web sites, instead of their commanding officers?

We must demand total transparency and honesty in recruitment practices to ensure that the brave men and women who do enlist go into their contract with their eyes wide open.
