An Example: Speaking would be presenting a civics or history lesson regarding subject matter on which the individual is qualified to speak.
Recruiting would be setting up a booth where anyone can "drop by" and learn all the advantages, options and salaries gain by enlisting in the military.
Your definition of recruiting is no different than "Career Days" presented in many HS, which I've been a part of in LE during my career. Nothing wrong with it at all. LE was recruiting just as a number of others, big deal, and we were looking for good candidates instead of riff-raff coming in off the streets. It's time we quit treating them like coddled babies and encourage them to make INFORMED decisions, isn't that what libs are always yapping about?
You would have no objection of Planned Parenthood setting up a booth and "informing" kids on abortion, right?
Ah, yes, horror of horrors. I can't believe they would even present the military as an option to the busloads of driftless high schoolers.
I think you need to relax a little. The military, despite what a lot of people say, is not evil, and it is instrumental in turning boys and girls into men and women--something a WHOLE lot of high schoolers need these days.
And this is, somehow, a bad thing? And I suppose it is MUCH better to spend two years working part-time at Micky Dee's, followed by two semesters at Alfred Packer JC, and a lifetime of toking to compensate for the guilt, envy and regret every time they hear real vets talking...
And, why, pray tell, would you have a problem with that?
Prospective employers recruit by this device. As do colleges.
Why shouldn't the military be allowed to do the same? They have comparable benefits to offer.
So, using your logic, I guess you'd also ban colleges and employers from doing the same? I somehow doubt you would. But you still want the government to provide $$$ for education. Why are you so anti-military?
