  • none
  • an army of none
    5 May 2004

    i send in business reply mail from the army just to get the free stuff. this time it's a black duffel bag. i've got a friend who recently tried to volunteer for the army. i say tried because they didn't accept him. he's one of the most physically fit people i know, runs a 5 minute mile, benches 225. the problem is he's 5'8 and weights about 220lbs. they army turned away a volunteer because he's too short for his muscle mass. he's just too short to be strong. i will never allow myself to be drafted into an army that turns away willing volunteers.
