A lot of city kids will never know about the opportunities offered by the military if the recruiters aren't allowed to visit their schools. This may come as a shock to many, but there are a lot of households out there with no cable TV and no Internet service. No phone service, for that matter, except to dial 911 (even if phone service is cut-off, any phone jack will dial 911 if you plug-in a phone, leading many people to call 911 to ask us to call them a cab or order them a pizza. Really.). Most of these kids, if not all, don't even know where the local recruiting station is located (I've asked). For many of these kids, their life choices are; 1) Dealing drugs, and doing the associated prison time. 2) Working a menial, dead-end, minimum-wage job. 3) Join the military. It seems to me that #3 is an awfully attractive choice, considering the other 2 options.
