My son is not interested in the millitary, so why do they keep calling, my son won't call them back.

  • Did he fill out something at a recruiters office?? Or look at something online? He might need to call them back to get his name off a list!

  • He needs to tell them himself that he's not interested and to remove him from their call list. They won't accept it from you. If he tells them, they're required to stop calling.

  • Your son may have filled something out from a recruiter, unknowingly. He should call back and tell them to stop calling.

  • No, he didn't. He's never gone near a recruitment office or did anything on line

  • Why do you think they are calling Momma? He may have spoken to them and now is on their list. He has to tell him he does not intend to join. They will keep calling until he does that.

  • Maybe he should speak to the man and kindly tell him he is not interested in the military and to please stop calling him. That is what my son did.

  • Tell him that you would like your number taken off of their list and say you're on the "do not call list", even if you're not.

  • I just don't understand why they have to harass people, if someone wants to join the millitary they will contact them themselves, I just feel like yelling at the guy the next time he calls.

  • When I was in high school we had a recruiter that was always there during lunch. I don't know where he got my number but he did. He knew things about me, my friends, just by asking other people questions. He called everyone in our class and just put info together. I am guess the school gave him all our numbers. But as soon as I talked to him and said I wasn't interested he stopped calling. I had to talk to him, not my mom.

  • My son just finished his first year of college, in high school, they contacted and he told them that he wasn't interested. I would think that that would be the end of it, unless he contacts them.
