Will this Eagle Scout accept a new challenge? (UPDATE)

The President of the American Conservative Student Union and a University of Alabama senior, David Andrew Ferguson, has an impressive resumé. He is an Eagle Scout, a former football player, and, of course, a member of the NRA. Mr. Ferguson displays bravery having once saved a man from drowning and, judging from this photo, he is not afraid of the potential health risks of a poor diet. As the treasurer for the University of Alabama College Republicans, Mr. Ferguson has shown he can be trusted with $, a lesson that may have been passed down to him from his family's business, L-Ferg International, a company that specializes in keeping American business owners wealthy by outsourcing jobs to Asia. This focused, busy young man's political philosophy is "You can change the world one liberal at a time. . . " Yes you can, Mr. Ferguson, yes you can.

I scanned David's profile once and had to read through it again more carefully. After the subsequent viewing I was troubled that this fine, indomitable leader has no intentions of entering our Armed Forces after graduation. I thought, surely this must have been a mistake, strong leaders like Mr. Ferguson are what our country needs to lead our Infantry Units in the War on Terror. I attempted to contact him via E-mail twice and have yet to hear back. Hopefully someone, more compelling than me, can contact him and convince Mr. Ferguson to Be A Man! Enlist! It would be shameful for David to follow through on his intentions of attending law school without at least considering Military Service.

UPDATE: On 12 June, I was able to confirm Mr. Ferguson received my E-mails (Coincidently, this was also the day his profile was updated for it to read he will enter the JAG Corp upon graduation.). He is aware of our concern for him to become a credible conservative leader by entering the Armed Forces and we anxiously await for him to announce his commitment. Until then other Patriots should continue to contact David and alert him that an intention is not the same as a pledge.

It's HIS war -- just as it's Anonymous Troll's war. They want it, they should fight in it.

Why haven't they enlisted yet? Or are they too fat from sitting in their moms' basements playing Halo to meet the basic fitness requirements?

Outsourcing Jobs is the same thing as terrorism in book. Why does the Ferguson Family hate America?

i think you missed something, he did mention something about the JAG. That is the marine and navy military lawyers.

You can't force someone to enlist yet just because they support it. Plus, he wants to go into the navy. Pretty rude and offensive article. Why attack people? This website is an embarrassment to the military.

HMMM . . . it appears that Mr. Ferguson has updated his profile today to say he'll be entering the JAG Corps. If this is his intention I'd like to thank him for stepping up. Anyone willing to help uphold military law should be considered a noble person. I wonder why he was so shy about mentioning anything about this until today? I will have to again follow-up with Mr. Ferguson.

Mr. Ferguson is an adult; no blog can "force" him to do anything.

But we can certainly encourage him to enhance his personal and political credibility by setting a good example for the rest of us. And call him out when he refuses without explanation to the people he hopes to lead.

Operation Yellow Elephant is the only grass-roots citizens initiative anywhere in this great country encouraging healthy heterosexual young men to volunteer for military service. Please explain exactly how this website is "an embarrassment to the military."

Thank you.

I find it interesting how Operation Yellow Elephant operates under the auspices of a one way moral obligation to act on beliefs. If you support peace in the world, why not join one of the countless organizations such as the peace corps that will train you and deploy to you to countries all over the world where you help teach people how to read and write, fish, or grow crops? You should act on your beliefs and enlist in the peace corps. But you won't because you, like those that you deride on your blog, are not willing to stand up and act on that which you believe.

Has no one ever mentioned to you that voter registration is the military is over 85% Republican?

That 85% Republican statistic is crap... There is supposed to be no partisan political activity while in uniform.

However it apperars that the rules are beiong enforced selectively

We're focusing not on those Americans, including Republicans, Democrats and others, who have already contacted military recruiters, but those who haven't.

The real question is why so many College and Young Republicans who are eligible to serve [healthy heterosexuals 41 and under] choose not to Support President Bush to WIN! the Global War on Terrorism in Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere.

President Bush needs their support. If He can't convince them to Be A Man! Enlist!, how can he possibly achieve success in Iraq and other places?

Intention?

Sounds like Clinton-esque parsing, and on the same issue: Be A Man! Enlist!
