“The real deal on joining the military, as told by veterans … and what the military recruiters won’t tell you.”
“Before You Enlist!” (2018) provides a rational voice to counter the seductive and often deceptive recruiting practices of the U.S. military. The message is not “don’t enlist” but rather to provide young people and their families a more complete picture of the life-altering consequences of joining the military – especially in wartime.

The message should be don’t enlist.
Maybe so. However, it’s often more helpful to give someone info vs. telling them what they can, or can’t, do. Another reason for the title is that it’s easier for teachers to show an “informational” video in class vs. an “anti-military” video.
