What war movie will discourage anyone from joining the military?
Everyone had some good points.

Daniel I got to ask you because you hit the nail on the head. He needs the camaraderie or brotherhood. He wants to be part of something bigger than himself and he needs it more than most. There has to be something else to fill that need. He is the type of person that would die for another person when he believes in the cause. There has to be a balance somewhere between self-preservation and extending oneself too far.

    If someone is really considering joining the military the chances of scaring them out is very low. It takes a specific type of person to desire the military. Showing them a military movie will only encourage them.
    The action, trust, respect, and brotherhood that is involved in the military and military movies will encourage that person and really make them desire to be part of something bigger than themselves.

    ======================

    Maybe you could convince him to join a particular part of the military that would allow him to serve his country yet still be safe. An example of this would be the Navy or Air Force. The Navy and Air Force, in my opinion, are probably the safest branches in the military at the moment.
    The military has a huge variety of jobs available. Many of them don’t involve combat. The possibilities are enormous.

    The following website has some good information on different types of jobs:

    The above website has some general information but you should do some more research on different military jobs that you think he might enjoy.

    Good luck ^^

    Dead Presidents.

    There was a scene in it that was really, really gross and scared me sh*tless. It was in Vietnam, and a US soldier got ambushed, sliced open to where his guts all fell out, and his genitals cut off and placed in his mouth for his comrades to see. He was still alive when they found him, but died shortly thereafter.

    Made me really scared of being captured. That, plus the internet video of the Russian soldier in Afghanistan who got his head cut off real slowly with the knife.
