As Mule said..we are not all cut from the same cloth! ..BUt of course, TM said much the same thing, albeit a bit more cynical, when he said there may be trouble finding good recruits.
Among 18-24 year olds, I happen to know some very good candidates, although there are as many who are losers.
That is one reason why the recruitment bonuses are going up, up and up ! That's OK, since those willing to serve today deserve it !
Perhaps they can get at least 4 years college, and maybe a bit of help with their first home..
Much rather give them the bennies, rather than to keep forking money over to illegals...or lazybones!
...But perhaps it could be a way for an illegal to become legal !
