They have contracted with a mercenary firm for US Army recruiting.
US Army Recruiting Command (1999-Present). MPRI supports the US Army Recruiting Command on several programs. In early 2002, the US Army selected MPRI to participate in a historic five-year "Community-Based Recruiting" test program in which five active Army recruiting companies are replaced with contract recruiters. MPRI recruiters operate under the same rules and chain of command as other US Army recruiting companies. MPRI also supports USAREC in recruiting at several major colleges for Hispanic soldiers to enter the USAR. MPRI provides Guidance Counselors to 57 Military Entrance Processing Centers (MEPS), liaisons to the major Army Training Bases, and several key staff members to augment the USAREC staff. MPRI also provides Security Interviewers to these same MEPS. Further, MPRI provides 104 Administrative Assistants to support USAREC Recruiting Companies throughout the United States. MPRI also provides recruiters to support the US Army cyber-recruiting effort, operating the GO Army.Com chat room and providing e-mail responses to any interested prospect For more information, contact the office vic. Ft. Knox at 270-351-7226.

Sometimes I feel like I am being strangled by an octopus with a million tentacles.

1. I never knew what pricks these recruiters were
until I watched F911. And now to learn it's privatized,this shit just doesn't end.

2. I really, really hate the continued privatization
of so many military functions.
