At 15, most of Jason’s friends had dropped out of school. At 17, Jason was thinking about dropping out, too. He found himself sitting in school suspension in October of his senior year of high school for skipping too many days of school. He plotted his escape by telling the teacher he wanted to check out the colleges who were recruiting students in the gymnasium that day. Jason wasn’t interested in college. This was just a way to get out of suspension. The first booth he came to was a Marine recruiter who Jason recognized as an alumni. He talked to him for a while about joining the Marines, something he had never thought about doing before.
He never made it beyond the recruitment table. That night the recruiter came to his house, talked to his parents, and told him they had an opening for him. They invited him to come down to the office and take the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery to determine what he would be suited for in the military. The recruiter showed Jason his test results, handed him three pages and said, “Hypothetically speaking, if you could pick any of these jobs, what would you pick?” It was hypothetical, right? So Jason chose infantry.
