Selling the Parents

As parents have become an increasingly strong defense against military recruiters, the Army has begun to target them directly with a new advertising campaign. The "influencer group" of ads was produced by Chicago-based Leo Burnett USA. Influencers is the term recruiters use for parents, teachers, coaches, and other adults who influence a young person's life decisions, like whether to join the military.

Leo Burnett USA is one of at least six companies that are competing for an advertising contract with the Army that could total a billion dollars over five years.

The ads have been running since April on old-person cable channels, like Hallmark and the Game Show Network. One in Spanish is running on Spanish-language television and in Puerto Rico. The Army recently expanded their circulation and claims they will reach 58 percent of influencers of potential recruits by September. With Cindy Sheehan and the Gold Star Families for Peace in the news so much these days, the recruiters have a lot to compete with when it comes to reaching parents.

My friend Susan was a lady with a tender and soft heart. She had a troubled childhood and due to her past experiences she used to suffer from anxiety disorder. Being doctor, I decided to help her in her anxiety attacks, I asked her to buy xanax. This is the most useful drug for treating panic and anxiety disorder, so order xanax or alprazolam. The information for medication is available online; you can type xanax online on the Google bar and search. I asked her to buy xanax online so that she could avail the best deal and get cheap xanax. Thereafter, she has come back to her normal loving self; she is now a mother of one baby boy and a happy wife! Susan is thinking of starting a boutique. Thanks to xanax!!
