1. is that all?
I know for a fact the local ones where I grew up payed local "party girls" even in the underage range to entertain potential recruits. It's not a real damn clean business getting kids to sign away their right to decide whether or not they will kill. surprise, surprise.

2. Y'all DO realize of course that their REAL crime was getting caught, no?

Just so you realize how upset the army is with these guys . . .

From the posted article:

"All 14 recruiters have been shifted to other military jobs pending the investigation's outcome. "

That will really scare the shit outta other deceptive recruiters!

4. They get shifted to cold calling phone banks or doing (no joke)
"paperwork" for other recruiters, or doing supply runs--they just aren't "on production." If I had to guess, I'll bet they are manufacturing high school diplomas, and they'd better hope they aren't forging birth certificates or green cards...

When life is all about "making mission" or "making goal" depending on your branch of service, not making it spells absolute misery. Some crack under the strain, and do things, like cheat on the paperwork or try to game the system or lie to recruits, in order to get those butts on the bus.

6. More bad apples!
Well, now that those 14 aren't out there, military recruiting can go back to its squeaky clean image.

Yeah.

Right.
