Out of work? Got IT skills? Then get drafted!

Discussion in 'MCSE' started by Vigo Breadcrumbs, May 3, 2004.

  1. http://seattlepi.nwsource.com/national/171522_draft01.html

    abstract: Recent proposals/suggestions by the chief of the U.S. Selective
    Service System (the agency that registers men of age for potential
    compulsory military service) include:

    - Young Americans regularly inform the government about whether they have
    training in niche specialties needed in the armed services

    - Increase the maximum draft age from 25 to 34

    - Require women to register with Selective Service

    punch line: "Some of the skill areas where the armed forces are facing
    'critical shortages' include linguists and computer specialists, the agency
    said."

    Yahoo. I could go from unemployment to cannon fodder.

    I guess our Canadian posters can be glad this is one offer that's only good
    in the U.S.

    Hey, I'm still 34! Maybe I can go to Iraq and scare the
    terrorists with my A+ certificate. If that doesn't work, I
    can always wave my AA degree at them.

    don't worry you are scaring me from here with comments like that.

    and if you wave your MCP lapel pin around, you'll never be lonely while
    you're there...

    Perhaps he's jumped on the bandwagon with the rest of the world. It's the
