Not News: Recruiters lie

I'm not sure this is news - recruiters lie to get men to the colors?

Nov. 3, 2006 — An ABC News undercover investigation showed Army recruiters telling students that the war in Iraq was over, in an effort to get them to enlist.

Shocked, shocked I am.  I know I heard this one in 1985 . . .
"It's called a 'Failure to Adapt' discharge," the recruiter said. "It's an entry-level discharge so it won't affect anything on your record. It'll just be like it never happened."
Even as a gullible seventeen year-old I didn't think it was that easy.
