papers in their front seats or parents, other family members or kids in the service.

I was walking across campus this evening and saw a young, male freshman from my class with a shiny new hummer with a the red, white, and blue freedom isn't free sticker. Arrrrrrgggg!

3. you know what they say about assume...
I had a co-worker who had 3 of those damn stickers.
no family in the war or military at all for that matter.
I asked one day If he would encourage his son to fight for the good cause. The answer was a long drawn out hell no.

stickers....

Otherwise, I have been known to present them with the DoD enlistment forms and an offer to drive them to the Recruiters... have even recomended MoS (line infantry or medic)

Oh the responses vary from shock and silence to language fit for a DI in bootcamp, or a sailor down at the warf

7. I never met a rich kid during my two years in the Army.
When I was drafted during Vietnam, all the rich boys were in the Guard or had their rich daddy bail them out with a good medical excuse (Limbaugh). Jack Kemp was in such bad health, the draft board gave him a 4-F. He could play NFL football though. Saxby Chambliss (spelling ?) from Georgia had such terrible health problems, it was simply impossible for him go through Army training. However, he had no problem jogging, playing tennis, and playing golf at his country club.
