on Oct 21, 2010

US forces like to boast that they are the best and brightest in the world, but the story of how they got there is often untold and underreported. For example, what is the real driving force behind the decision to enlist in the first place? From high tech army experience centers to professional recruiters who show up in places like schools, malls, and popular hangouts for teenagers, RT's Dina Gusovsky takes a look at recruitment tactics in the United States. Focusing on the stories of three veterans, the question is: Is the Pentagon telling these young men and women the truth about war before they go overseas, or deceiving them just so that they sign their names on the dotted line? This is Part One of the report.
