Youth deserve ability to make an informed decision about their future

 

Written by Maj. Gen. Jeffrey Snow
Commanding General for U.S. Army Recruiting Command

U.S. ArmyFort Knox, KY – Unfortunately, the growing divide between the military and society was apparent last week when a teacher’s inaccurate and misinformed statements about the quality of America’s armed forces made national headlines.

As a U.S. Army officer for more than 30 years, I can tell you our nation’s military services are among the most respected organizations in the world, and the individuals who choose to serve deserve the support of our nation’s people.

About 50 percent of young Americans today admit they know little to nothing about our military. As a nation, we are failing them, and we are failing ourselves.
