"No matter where you go, you've got to work. If you're on a farm, and you don't milk the cows or cut the hay, you don't get paid. Well, in the Army they pay you to grow up'.' Sergeant Raymond has trained a lot of soldiers. He knows how they get to be good ones. "A guy comes into the Army, he's got to mature or be matured. Most people eighteen or nineteen are still searching. They're not sure what they want to do with their lives-except be on their own. The Army's where you cut yourself off from a lot of the things you were before. You get responsibilities. You get an education. And the chance to put it all on the line. That chance is important'.' If you enlist in the Army, you'll be getting a good job for good pay, the opportunity to travel and to further your education. You'll work for people who want you to do something mean ingful for your country-and yourself. "The things you get here, they just don't leave you when you leave the Army."
