Army Ups School Reruitment
by Ian Friday, Oct. 08, 2004 at 2:41 PM

Bowling Green, Ohio- ROTC is bringing officers into schools to take over classes for a day in hopes of getting more kids to enlist...

I'm a high school student in Bowling Green, and the other day a guy from the ROTC came in & took over my gym class. We were forced to go through military drills (attention, saluting, laps, jumping jacks, push ups, etc). Hmm, what does this have to do with physical education? Anyone showing any interest in the military was pressed to join, and of course he gave out shirts to some folks too. The recruiter said that having tables in the cafeteria hadn't been getting enough people enlisting, so this was their way to get more recruits. The day after, he was taking over one of the home ec classes all day. Supposedly the recruiters are going to be coming back to school pretty regularly doing this. I don't know if this is a national campaign, but if anyone else has seen this going on, I'd like to find out. Also, if anyone has any suggestions on how to stop the military from taking over my school, please contact me.
