Internal Army documents obtained by Motherboard provide insight on how the Army wanted to reach Gen-Z, women, and Black and Hispanic people through Twitch, Paramount+, and the WWE.
Another one for the conspiracy theorists. https://www.zerohedge.com/g...
It's well known the US Army has been using gaming as a gateway for recruiting for a LOOONG time. Hell even in high school recruiters would ask whoever wasnt interested for their gamertag so they can play Cod together. Not to mention they've sponsored several fps tournaments. Not a conspiracy when it's out in the open. Plus Arma exists so...
Instead of trying to get them to join then military through bs trends why not instead tell em of the benefits that joining the military bring? Least in times of peace and without the threat of war, having your studies paid in full sounds better than "hey you can do what you do in COD by joining the army, isn't that cool?"
The USA has been involved in wars/conflicts for 90+% of its existence so you're unlikely to be in the US Military during peacetime
I was a recruiter. You can tell a kid the benefits all day long. Ultimately it's a calling and you just call the right person and do the paperwork.
"I was a recruiter. You can LIE TO a kid about the benefits all day long."
I think it is absurd that the US military has millions if not billions of dollars in their advertising budget. It is absurd that they have an advertising budget.
Would you prefer forced conscription like in Russia?
i had that in austria
wasnt all too bad. 6 months of listening to idiots screaming nonsense. you dont actually participate in any war, but i guess ametica is a different kind of hell when it comes to that. who knows what they'd put ppl through lol
ended up enlisting actually haha. sniper training was like 7 weeks. not a bad life
The alternate to spending millions of dollars on advertising is forced conscription?
Wow, you learn something every day.
Gee, how would anyone in the whole world learn about the US military if it weren't for advertising.
Can't wait to die and respawn in real life! Oh wait...
We all wish … I’d love to see my baby bro and grandfather again .
Sorry about your losses, friend.
On topic :
I thought the Army was always using FPS games. This is not new.
A bit on the nose isnt it...like killin in the game...join up and kill in real life
You like to die in game? You can die in real life to-day. Military needs you.
"Imagine slide-cancel-bunny-hop-drop-sh otting all foreign and domestic enemies of the United States of America. Your real-life perk will be An Army of One"
All I see in my head was the game America's Army. "America's Army is a series of first-person shooter video games developed and published by the U.S. Army, intended to inform, educate, and recruit prospective soldiers."
The game was fun though.
I remember that before I joined. There were Army of One commercials non-stop. It was a pretty formal of advertisement. After I selected my MOS I got a booklet about guns, exercising, the store and pay grades. I also got a t shirt and a backpack with Army of One logo on it. They even had the merchandising down.
Honestly to wrap it all up they’re dying for these mf politicians and presidents that care little about em it’s sad it’s like a big blood sacrifice gain to em
