"A military life attracts young people for many reasons-duty,comradeship,purpose, the opportunity to test life to the limits, to learn a trade,escape from home, adventure-even patriotism. But for the youngster lacking a stable caring home, it provides family, with all the security and meaning that goes with it. They crave the structure, approval, attention, and clear rules that their parents should have given them; and we can supply it."
