the rants of a recruiter who hates people.


"Men, this stuff that some sources sling around about America wanting out of this war, not wanting to fight, is a crock of bullshit. Americans love to fight, traditionally. All real Americans love the sting and clash of battle. You are here today for three reasons. First, because you are here to defend your homes and your loved ones. Second, you are here for your own self respect, because you would not want to be anywhere else. Third, you are here because you are real men and all real men like to fight. When you, here, everyone of you, were kids, you all admired the champion marble player, the fastest runner, the toughest boxer, the big league ball players, and the All-American football players. Americans love a winner. Americans will not tolerate a loser. Americans despise cowards. Americans play to win all of the time. I wouldn't give a hoot in hell for a man who lost and laughed. That's why Americans have never lost nor will ever lose a war; for the very idea of losing is hateful to an American."

Its all fun and games. i'm always supprised as to how many kids think of this stigma when it comes to the military, not just the army, but all the branches. one kid wants to go into construction. i told him we would pay him to learn a construction job for us and give him a ton of benifits. but he just blew me off. shit i didnt know that getting at least 37K for college, 15k cash bonus, free insurance (both life and health), and 30 days paid vacation a year was something to just blow off. what was I thinking. 50 thousand dollars easy in benifits your first year alone.

anyways, it was an emotional day. i managed to make some appointments with people that are interested in the army. that was a good thing. it was crazy at the office. there was a ship day lose with another recruiter that our station commander didnt even know about. my recruite today left for MEPS, they have an awsome job with the army, they are going to be a blackhawk mechanic. i've heard that they make like 60 to 70 thousand dollars coming out of the army.

my girlfriend is in bad shape. work is coming down hard on her. shes in sales, and shes got to type up her sales, prepare a presentation, and had a 5 hour meeting. there are just not enough hours in the day for her to finish everything. especially when she has two awsome kids at home. they are so cool. anyways it will be done.
