Army opens prep school for dropouts to fill ranks

Austin Swarner left high school to care for his mother while she fought a losing battle with cancer. Tony Brown wanted to begin supporting himself and left two classes shy of a diploma. Haelee Holden got tired of trying to make it through school while flipping burgers until 1 a.m.

But the U.S. Army, eager to fill its ranks amid wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, doesn't see them as dropouts. They are recruits who only need a GED before they're ready to begin basic training.

And so, the Army formally opens its first prep school Wednesday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Just think. Six months ago I could not spell 'sarjent'. Now I are one!!!"

(ahem)

This is still economic drafting; create an economy where people cannot get ahead except by going through the military.
