Is this bad? Degrading? Do you think the armed forces is taking advantage of people by helping with their education? I noticed on another post about professions that a few people have some ideas on this that I hadn't really heard before. Wondering what you think...Answer Question

Not at all. My dh joined for the 20gs and the collage. You know what you are doing and they drill it into their heads before the sign. You do not get forced in....you swear in.

"Answering anon to avoid stalkers. I would not let my children join the army, navy, marines, etc... I think its wrong. I would want them to go to college and get a job. Not go to war so they can get their education paid for. Too many people are dying. The government sucks- "If they aren't smart enough to go to school on their own then lets give them drugs and guns and see how they do" That makes no sense to me.."
This was one of the answers there that surprised me... I know my husband comes in contact with people daily who need help paying for school and look at the military as a way to do that. But obviously they aren't doing it ONLY to pay for school. That would be like going to school ONLY to go to prom. Hello?
