Zathros: Considering Philadelphia area recruiting is too low, according to Army recruiters, this new facility was built in the City of Brotherly Love for a reason – to woo people into the offices.
A lot of my friends are in the military, and although most of them joined for the right reasons, there were a couple who were misled (and lied to) by their recruiters. Perhaps it was their fault for not double checking the “facts” told to them by the recruiters, but the Army is looking for any and all advantages to help get people to enlist right now.
I took the ASVAB when I was interested in joining the Air Force, and had multiple Army recruiters calling me at all sorts of weird hours – once at 9:00 p.m. while I was drinking with friends, with another recruiter calling me on a Saturday afternoon. I won’t even get into the BS that was promised to me by these recruiters.
The Army needs recruits, and it seems like they’ll do anything to get them.
