What’s green with lots of numbers?

Uh, I don’t know … the Matrix?

No? Oh it’s money, I see. Except it’s money promised in spam, and spam from the military. How did I get on their list, I wonder. Maybe because of this guy?

That’s right. The universal language of cold, hard cash. How does up to $56,000 sound?

If you’ve checked out the Guard’s “College First” Enlistment Option* and aren’t convinced the Guard can help you get through college – if up to $20,000 for enlisting isn’t enough, then it’s time to up the ante.

You can get up to a $20,000 enlistment bonus, up to $20,000 to repay student loans, more than $4,000 a year for continued schooling, and as much as $12,000 in pay your first year of part-time service. That’s more than $56,000.

But you have to act now.

Sorry, fellas, but warm, soft direct-deposits from the NSF sounds a lot better, especially because I kind of like my unextreme unadventurous life. And life is the key.
