Yeah, you make a good point. Liberal (unpatriotic) guidance counselors and teachers probably have a thousand times the influence as these "counter recruiters" do.
I couldn't believe some of the things I saw-
Talking kids into basket weaving courses at 2 year community colleges, just so they could maintain good stats for how many kids went on to college
The Military was for losers, dropouts and GEDs in their minds.
I have less use for Guidance counselors than I do for Telemarketers
