I personally like this idea, however I can't see the government going for it. They need those young impressionable minds to make impulsive decisions when they come through the schools and amp you up about how great joining the military will be. I'm young enough to remember the pomp and circumstance of their presentations and how they really played up all of the appeal of money, respect, courage, bravery honor and showed all of these great looking people in perfect shape, saving the world and pictures of all of the starving kids around the world cheering the american soldiers etc... I know for a fact that quite a few kids got swept along and regretted the impulse decision. But then again we would have a much smaller military if we waited until people were a bit more mature and rational to make that decision. Now mind you I am not criticizing our soldiers one bit, I am saying that the decision to join the military is one of the biggest choices a person can make in their life and it is not an easy thing to change once the decision is made. Can't just say "oopsie, I made a mistake" and leave. So if we are going to allow teenagers to make this life altering decision, we have no business telling them they can't go into a club and buy a rum and coke because they aren't mature enough for that.
