I think middle school is kind of pushing it.

I'll go with the "Why NOT let them on here?" argument. They're just doing their jobs, not bothering anyone. I can't think of a reason NOT to let them on, so I say, "Let them on."

...That wasn't too confusing, was it?

I agree. When I was in high school, I went to a christian school (it was the closest one for 45 miles) and the administration did not let recruiters into the school to talk to the students. I missed out on a lot of information and opportunities to talk to a recruiter. I would have liked to see my chances when I was younger, but I guess it all works out for the best, eh?

University is late because by now, serious candidates are looking to be officers already.

Not everyone wants or can go to college so after Sr. year in High School is great for an alternative career information.

Our SASI in my AFJROTC unit didn't even consider the Armed Forces as a career until after College, but he only considered it because his friend told him i was a good career move. So, colleges and universities are too late.

I do not agree with you chewie. There are more than a few students who drop out after theri first or second year of college. The Army is not a bad place to be when you are trying to regroup your life. It is a hard sell though. With the whole war on terror going on, recruting in the military is quite hard.

An interesting note to add to your arguement. Talk to any man over the age of 45. Most of them will tell you they wish they could have made the military a career. Most of my freinds who are younger say don't do it.

Just say this: "So long as colleges are allowed to recruit students out of high school military recruiters have to be allowed on campus." Oh, and keep in mind that approx 78% of all the employees in a school (teachers administrators, janitors, etc.) are liberal democrats.

Makes sense, many school employees at my school don't have guns.
