Military Recruiting via Facebook: Bring'Em on Your Campus - Today!
Attention Real Americans on Campus-
Your Country Needs You! [Part 1 of 2. Part 2.]
Even if you cannot, or will not, actually join our military, and even if you are a flaming liberal totally against the Iraq War, and even if you are a Yellow Elephant yourself, you can still help your country. Students, faculty, staff, maybe even alumni. Here's how:
First, join Facebook via your campus.edu e-mail. This gives you instant access to all of the "the facebook" info for your entire College or University.
Second, conduct a query of your school's students who identified themselves as "Conservative" or "Very Conservative." You should get back quite a number of names, even at the most liberal schools.
Third, compile all of these students' information into a word document listing name, age, e-mail address, major, realtionship status and cell phone # (when available). Also include important sales/closing info such as interests, if they were unemployed, etc.
Fourth, take your completed list along with an Army OCS flyer (see ArmyOCS.com or just copy down that URL) to your local Armed Forces Recruiting Station and ask to meet with the Station Commander. Explain to him or her that you are a concerned citizen who wants to Support Our President by encouraging his strongest supporters, if qualified, to volunteer for military service. That's what OYE is all about.
We're certain that the recruiters will appreciate the information, especially in such an easy-to-use format. We're also certain that those "very conservative" students will welcome an official invitation to participate in what President Bush has just described as "the decisive ideological struggle of the 21st century."
We encourage everyone with a .edu address to exploit the fountain of info available at "thefacebook.com." [After all, the Pentagon is doing the same thing with high school students all over the country.] By consolidating this information for the recruiters, they are more than happy to "run down the lead." And if the students aren't interested, they'll Just Say No.
Major hat tip to IRR Soldier. Thanks also to DailyKos.
UPDATE: Thanks for your comments. If providing this info to "unauthorized third parties" (like military recruiters) violates Facebook's terms of service**, then please consider contacting your fellow Facebook members by yourself to encourage them to Be A Man! Enlist! You can also ask them to authorize direct contact by military recruiters.
Please let us know of any interesting responses for use with Operation Yellow Elephant Bingo.
**President Bush just adds a "signing statement." Why don't you?
