Never did I say that I'd ELIMINATE adults in those jobs... nor did I say I'd ELIMINATE gangs...

What I DID say was that having military service will give everyone skills... job skills... which they learn through OJT, which will help them earn better jobs, which are more suitable for their age and lifelong goals. Even military service as a personnel technician will help you with data entry and paperwork routing.

Sure, there will be those who go back to being lazy, or go back to their gangs, but there will be more people who come out of highschool/service with applicable jobs. They'll actually have a bank account, which their First Shirt made them keep balanced, and they ultimately end up in a better position than they would have coming directly out of high school, into a gang or Burger King.

At least their gangs will have balanced bank accounts.
