Marine Recruiters Help Recruits Cheat on Entrance Exams

Nov 5, 2007

Nine Marine Corps recruiters were caught using stand-ins to take entrance exams for people who enlisted.

When the issue became public, one of the recruiters was put out of the military. The other eight were simply reprimanded and reassigned. How many others have done the same thing, no one knows.

In any case, these recruiters were doing exactly what was expected of them. The military does not need people who can read, it simply needs people who can stop a bullet!
