    [APFN] THE ARMY OF ONE

    I saw the first commercial for the new "Army of One" very late last night  
    (Army of One seems a strange theme for the army that stresses uniformity 
    above all else).  But anyway, in this ad, a handsome, very military young 
    man in camouflage fatigues and matching cap strides straight towards the 
    camera with a fierce look frozen on his face, a look that I hope is never 
    directed at anyone in this country. 

    I know we've adopted war as the only answer to peace in this world, and I 
    know most believe there's no other way; but as a military man's daughter, 
    the mother of two sons, and a peace seeking individual, this commercial 
    sent chills down my spine.  It reminded me of a military[?] paper that I had 
    read about long ago called "*Silent Weapons", about the need to program 
    parents to give up their most prized possession to war. 

    It may be acceptable.  I don't know, maybe even necessary, but the concepts 
    that came unbidden into my mind as I watched this advertisement was of "a 
    lean, mean, killing machine"; a very young, very programmed and very 
    polished murderer. 

    The Army's new advertising scheme was developed by the Rand Corp et al.  
    It is a concept the recruiters believe will lure a new untapped market of 
    youth into the military. 

    Here is the transcript of the Army's Announcement of the new 
    "Army of One" advertising campaign.
