Sailors are in the 'Narmy' now

Here is an article about training at Fort Jackson. It's several weeks old, but (for the most part) it provides an accurate picture. A few laughs:

Navy Capt. Rick Jones, the on-site officer in charge of the training, said most are volunteers. And even those who are "volunteered" are enthusiastic once they get involved in the course, he said.
If one or two people in a group of 60 counts as "most" then I guess he's accurate. Surely CAPT Jones knows that "most" of the sailors are not really volunteers. And it's not "volunteered" in quotation marks...it's "voluntold!"
