Explore the facts recruiters don't want you to know, and learn about what it's really like to be a soldier in the U.S. Army.
Recruiters are always ready to offer helpful advice to eager enlistees, such as "go back to Africa", and "take your gay ass off somewhere else".
Rape in the Army
1 in 4 Women
Other than being frequently raped and sexually assaulted by superiors and fellow soldiers, women in the Army are treated exactly the same as men, and given the same responsibilities and opportunities.
Nobody to Turn To
In the Army, you will learn to have the strength to solve your own problems independently. For example, if you're raped or sexually assaulted, the Army will provide no support or justice for you, and will even try to punish you for bringing it up.
Army Job Skills:
Torturing prisoners isn't just the Army way, it's a valuable skill for future civilian careers.
Fun With Torture
See how the Army has helped deal with those boring desert nights. When the lights go off, the party begins. In the army, you too can get in on the action! Just make sure your skin isn't brown and your name doesn't have an "al'" in it if you know what I mean.
Soldiers Beat Children
No threat is too small for soldiers to contain. In the US Army, you will learn how to use violence to terrorize civilians into obedience.
Soldiers Destroy Man's Car
Soldiers are America's ambassadors in war-torn regions. They bring American principles of justice, understanding, and arbitrary destruction of property to the civilians of foreign lands.
In the Army, we're accepting of religious and cultural differences. No matter if you're Baptist or Lutheran, we all believe that Allah sucks and so does your motherfucking Koran.
Army Work Ethic
Perpetual Combat Duty
In the Army, the job's not done until the politicians say it is. Soldiers are assigned to dangerous, high stress jobs with little to no down time. And our stop-loss policy guarantees that we can keep them there months or even years after their contracts expire.
Killling Injured Civilians
In the Army, you will have mind-shattering combat experiences. If you don't eventually enjoy murdering unarmed people, rest assured that someone in your unit will.
See how the Army helps to spread prosperity and good-will around the world. As a soldier, you will have an unforgettable impact on people's lives wherever you go.
In the Army, keeping civilians out of the street is critical. While you may not be the one who drops bombs on crowds, your service is essential to making it happen.
The Hidden Massacre
"We were told, going into Fallujah - into the combat area - that every single person who was walking, talking, breathing, was an enemy combatant. As such, every person who was walking on the street or in a house was a target."
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
When it's Over, the War in Your Head Begins
Troops experience unspeakable traumas that they will re-live for the rest of their lives, sometimes in terrifying flashbacks. The Army provides insufficient and ineffective counseling to the huge number of veterans who experience PTSD.
Once We're Done With You It's Your Problem
Soldiers learn the value of independence, especially once they're discharged and find that there's little or no help available for disabilities or injuries they suffered in the service.
Once We're Done With You It's Your Problem
"They take them. They emotionally destroy them. And then they throw them back into society and say 'Ok, you're on your own'"
The US Army employs the very latest in radioactive weaponry. This results in long term radiation damage and permanent disability among soldiers and civilians alike, but it's a small price to pay for the success of the mission.
Relax, It's Just a Little Pin Prick. That'll Keep You Going Through The Show...
Join the Reserve
Fight "Al Qaida"
I wanted the chance for a better education, and I wanted to defend my country form Al-Qaida. But then the President sent us to Iraq, without enough troops and no body armor...
Targeting Latino Youth
The US Army especially values Latino soldiers. If you are a poor Latino youth, we will promise you anything if you enlist, including citizenship, reversing deportations, and other blatant lies.
Caught on Tape
The Army wants YOU! In fact, we want you so bad that we'll get you to lie about pretty much anything to qualify for service.
Recruiting College Students
"High Quality Youths"
Some say military recruitment is just another business, that recruiters are no more honest than used car salesmen. They're right, except that you don't have to risk your life in an illegal war if you get duped by a car salesman.
The Army believes everyone should have the chance to serve their country. Problems like depression, bi-polar disorder, or other conditions which will be exacerbated by the extreme trauma of combat shouldn't stop you from enlisting.
Bending the Truth
Whatever your interests, there's a job in the Army doing it. Of course, unless your interest is "being cannon fodder in the desert", it's unlikely you'll actually get the job you're promised after you sign up.
In the Army, you'll learn to push your limits and attempt things you never thought possible, like trying to survive with improper medical care because a recruiter pressured you to lie about your medical problems when you enlisted.
Hip Hop Marketing
The Army knows how much you kids like that rap music, and we'll give you as many rides in tricked-out Hummers as it takes to get you to enlist.
As a soldier in the US Army, you'll do what you're told without asking any questions. Our job is to loyally obey those in power, regardless of whether they support the interests of the United States and its citizens.
In the Army, you will be part of the proud American tradition of violently interfering in foreign governments to protect US economic interests. The civilian casualties may be high, but that's the price we pay to protect American pocketbooks.
Imperialism in Iraq
Why We're Really At War
Politicians and civilians may talk a lot about the justification for going to war, but the Army doesn't really care. As a soldier, you will go to war when the President orders it, no matter how insane the justification may be.
US Drug Smuggling
NATO's Illegal War Against Serbia
Civilian deaths are a part of war, but that's never stopped the US Army from participating in bloody, illegal conflicts for the sake of politicians' reputations.
