On the second anniversary of the U.S. invasion of Iraq, a group of local activists staged a dramatic protest outside the Armed Forces Recruiting Center in the neighborhood of Roslindale, Massachusetts. At noon, the Boston Direct Action Project dumped five gallons of fake blood and took up positions on the doorstep. The activists portrayed a dead Iraqi woman, her grieving husband, a dead U.S. soldier and his grieving wife. The blood flowed forty feet into the parking lot, attracting scores of local residents. The community was supportive, and many onlookers stopped to talk to members of the Project, who handed out informational flyers with suggested alternatives to military service.

@deathb4dishonorUSMC Enlisting next year during the summer. I'll do DEP just cuz right, doesn't hurt to be in it, and i know i'm going to the Army no matter what after highschool. When are you enlisting?
@deathb4dishonorUSMC I don't know what MOS a Ranger has. I'm choosing the 11x option 40 contract but I dont know if the MOS a Ranger has is still 11b haha.
@deathb4dishonorUSMC I'm enlisting next year too but have to wait for school to be over to join DEP cuz I'm turning 17 later than usaul people my grade haha. Good luck as Cav. scout!! Hooah!
@RiffRaff04 Hahaha, damn right. People at my school come with flyers saying "what would happened if no one joined the military? Wars would be cancelled due to lack of interest." Damn liberals dont understand that if there was no military, they would be sent themselevs. Either that or America would get walked on by other countries and America would be no more.
@badge717 Amen, fucking amen! If it werent for them, if it werent for those who still join, these liberal asses would be sent to Iraq/Afghan. GOD BLESS OUR TROOPS HOOAH!!!!
I'm enlisting in 1 year and getting in the DEP where i get sent to bootcamp in 2012. I'm joining with the 11x option 40 contract to be a Ranger. I decided ALL BY MYSELF. Never talked to a recruiter before, ever. Not while deciding on what to do so what do you say to that? It's not always the recruiters fault, not all lie. HOOAH!!!!
Man, you guys are right. Maybe if we all were just like you the world would be a place full of sunshine and rainbows. Get real, guess what happens if the military does away with recruiting...THEY BRING THE DRAFT BACK and you will be the ones forced to fight. Stupid hippies.
