Driving through the misty Mohawk River valley, a commercial on the AM radio gave me more confirmation that the military doesn’t have much respect for the people it asks to kill and be killed. The National Guard promised that it will pay “up to 100 percent” of the cost of a college education for those who enlist.
It seems that the National Guard has a new mission that requires special skills like the ability to work free of little distractions such as mathematical reasoning. “Up to 100 percent” would include absolutely nothing.
I wonder what other interesting little promises military recruiters are making these days.
