Military training program for teens expands in US
by Mira ObermanSun Nov 25, 6:17 PM ET
Dozens of teens dressed in uniforms provided by the US Marines stand
at attention in the gym of a Chicago public high school as a drill
sergeant goes through a list of the day’s do’s and don’ts.
Bring your books to class. Come for extra help if you need it. And
wear your uniform with pride.
“Young men, you think you can get a haircut and say I’m done for two
or three weeks. WRONG,” Sgt. Major Thomas Smith Jr. intones.
“Young ladies. There’s been no problem with your uniforms but there
is a problem with your ties. Again, I will go through it again. Wear
your ties when you come to my class.”

Message from Mark: "I am a one-man operation, although assisted greatly by some volunteers, and, now and then, by people paid by others for one-time projects. There is no shortage of skilled, dedicated folks out there who want to help me. There is, however, nothing I can pay them with, unless you decide you can contribute something."
