Recruiters prey on students

We’ve all seen the military recruitment tables set up on campus. They come in full fatigues, set up where they will find the most students, usually by the library, and lie in wait. They promise a simpler way than taking classes, getting a degree and hoping for a steady career afterward. They promise money. They even promise the ability to finish school while still in the military and receiving paid…
