Is This a Prelude to The Militarism of Our Youth?

"Drilled by soldiers in setting goals".

What; the parents and educators aren't competent enough to do this?

The example of blind obedience to authority as part of U.S. military training is not the answer for school-age children. Turning over the responsibility of career planning to the military is a psychological ploy to advance the government's agenda to increase the size of the armed forces. Where will it lead?

I've included an historical link describing Adolph Hitler's manipulation of the German young people to become a paramilitary force.

"My program for educating youth is hard. Weakness must be hammered away. In my castles of the Teutonic Order a youth will grow up before which the world will tremble. I want a brutal, domineering, fearless, cruel youth. Youth must be all that. It must bear pain. There must be nothing weak and gentle about it. The free, splendid beast of prey must once again flash from its eyes...That is how I will eradicate thousands of years of human domestication...That is how I will create the New Order." -- Adolf Hitler, 1933.

It could happen in America, the rebirth of nationalism that will result in war.
