I don"t know, guys--do you really want to be known as the organization that preys on dumb emo kids with daddy issues?

it actually makes a lot of sense to me.
the military usually has lower than average suicide rates, so by joining maybe the kid won`t kill him/her self.

or at least they`ll go out with a bang

"dumb emo kids with daddy issues"

The absolute dumbest description I have ever seen. the person that wrote that obviously lives in the suburbs and has no idea what human suffering is.

We`ll pay you to kill people AND give you a gun to do it... just pretty please don`t use it on yourself.

ghettoninja, choke yourself on the nearest dick, you suicidal emo-centric daddy lover.
something tells me the most "ghetto" experience of your life is getting robbed by a real-life negro!
Most ninja thing you`ve done probably involves a dildo and making it disappear.

@Reign Two of my friends were recruited to the Marines before we even started our senior year of high school. They went off to boot camp like 3 weeks after graduation.

Suicide attempts require a waiver to be obtained.

Suicide attempts do NOT disqualify you entirely from military service.

And...as far as the tag line on this picture, "I don`t know guys--do you really want to be known as the organization that preys on dumb emo kids with daddy issues?"

Go drat yourself.

Doesn`t the US military recruit people pretty much straight out of high school?

Plus you have all those adverts that are aimed at `gamers` as well, can`t say they aren`t trying to keep their ranks filled ^^

Why not? Many of the reasons teens get to be suicidal (loneliness, existential angst, fear, lack of meaning) can be addressed in some individuals by a military environment. It could easily be what they need.

I live in Israel, here you are supposed to go to the military at the age of 17, and some get ataste of it at 16. They don`t even talk about the suicide rates. Oh, and did I mention you have nothing to do about it? It is illegal not to go to the military in here.

Seriously though this is probably a gag from an avid Simpsons fan/ army recruitment dude.

Do you really want to be the guy so stupid that you think this is real? It`s either photoshopped or staged. Suicide attempts keep you out of the military, just like felony convictions are supposed to.
Besides, being a soldier in Iraq is statistically safer than being a black teenager in Baltimore. And people in the military are on average less violent than London teenagers.

For some the structure provided by the military is probably a good thing. Misdirectioned depressed teens likely fit that category. Seems a bit off to target them so overtly though.
