    A Marine Corps one from a few years back. Looked like a D&D commercial.

    As far as video games go, well that's their target market--the video-game generation. When I went in, they were hawking college money to people who were too white male to get a scholarship or a break from the feds. Before that it was a life of action and adventure away from the farm, or Be All You Can Be, or fighting the Nazis, Remember Pearl Harbor!, or whatever.

    The current ads are much better, but for a few years there they were really bad. Then again recruiting during peace time can be difficult. How do you make sitting around playing cards look cool?
