Comment on What war movie will discourage anyone from joining the military? by Daniel.
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.

The military has a huge variety of jobs available. Many of them don’t involve combat. The possibilities are enormous.

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 ^^
