News, but not the serious kind
Join the army, and pamper yourself!
Now, if you just sign on the dotted line, son, it’ll be official. You’ll be a private in the U.S. Army.
I don’t know sir, I’m still not sure about this.
Well, I’ve seen a lot of movies about the soldier’s life, living in damp tents or slummy barracks…
Why didn’t you say so? Just look at this picture of a new recruit in his own room at basic training. These are the new barracks.
Wow, that’s a whole lot nicer than my room at home! What about the food?
Best food in the world, son. Rich celebrities come to our bases just for the chow. You could find yourself dining next to Angelina Jolie, like this Marine here!
The mess hall staff is top notch, too. Fancy being served a sizzling steak by Michelle Obama?
Hmmmm. I don’t normally do this, but why don’t I pencil in here that you’d prefer to enlist as a major.
Well, that seals the deal! I’m in!
Welcome to the New Army, Major!
