    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.

    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.

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

    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.

    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.

    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 ^^

    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.

    @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.

    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.

    "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.

    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
