The U.S. Army is now a Ride at Six Flags

April 14th, 2008 | by Steve O |

The Army is trying to lure teens into enlisting with an introduction to Iraqbox Live.

Strapping Army officers in battle fatigues greet the youths, take down their contact information and give them official-looking tags to wear on lanyards around their necks.

Next, the teens enter the tent for a welcome blast of air conditioning and a taste of things to come. They first assemble by a bank of XBox 360 consoles and learn to play “America’s Army True Soldier” — a first-person shooter that costs $50 and handles just like the popular Halo series.

Fortunately for these teens, dying doesn’t mean “Game Over!”, instead, they are congratulated with “Mission Accomplished!”

    I know we need to recruit people for the military but isn’t there something just wrong about this one?
