I don't think that awareness level has changed much. And, there is still the attitude, "It's OK, we're under 18, they can't do anything to us."
I recall when the growing up penalty was 30 days or see your recruiter before 4:00 pm TODAY. It's unfortunate that some of these do-no-gooders are no longer qualified for military service. (We should have universal service, but that's another thread)
EXACTLY. So how do they get on the red flag list? This might take this topic to the side a bit but GREAT QUESTION... Is there a way to find a list they might be on?
