Who remembers this Army Recruiting video from 1981? It was the catch phrase of Be All you Can Be, but showed everyone a glimpse of what we could get done by 9 am. How the times have changed. This is the ad that was playing when I enlisted. Now that I've dated myself. Find your branches ad that was airing when you enlisted on you tube. Salutes

I am 90% positive this is the same recruiting ad they used in 1981's "Stripes" with Bill Murray and Harold Ramis

A cursory search of google and youtube indicate that im either wrong, or it is buried really really deep.

I remember that one, we all wondered where they found the friendly 1SG who didnt care if you were sitting around in a cluster or yell spread out one grenade will kill you all. , and didnt we get more dumb s^&* done by 9am than most people did all day.
I did like the Be All That You Can Be campaign.
