They go inside high schools and recruit a bunch of 16-17 year old kids. They tell them they will have their college payed for, get a fat signing bonus, and be set for the rest of their life. 17 years old, have never voted, have never lived on their own. What do they know? The marines used to be outside my cafeteria everyday in high school. Just sitting their at their table full of brochures and a pull up bar where all the football players showed up to class late because they would stand around and try to do more pull ups than each other.
