Armed forces recruiting just got harder...

After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

If you saw Farenheit 9/11, you may remember the marines who were recruiting outside of a mall, touting the Marines as a great way to advance yourself in life.

Regardless of my negative feelings for the war and contempt for the machine that propogates it, this still makes me sad. The guy put his money where his mouth is and paid up. And he sure as hell isn't the only one, just more visible than others.
