British army criticised for recruiting 16-year-olds - video

Britain is one of just 19 countries that still recruit 16-year-olds to the armed forces. A new report claims that younger recruits are more likely to suffer from PTSD, alcohol problems and suicide than those who join as adults. This video tells the story of David Buck who joined the army at 17 but now feels he was conned by misleading recruitment marketing.

  1. Get em young... Cannon fodder for Juden and corporate sharks. I'm a former Para, and joined at 17. To be honest, I loved it, but looking back, all that hard training and certain operations we went on, were for shit. The reason me, and others did that stuff, was personal fitness and to stretch ourselves to the limit. After 14 years, I'd seen enough, and now work in personal protection.
