HSLDA joins the Army?

HILL has linked to an article about an Army recruiting site that has an ad for HSDLA. How does that tie in with Section 10 of the proposed legislation?

From the HILL site:
--I have yet to see an answer as to why the HSLDA link is on a goarmy site.

HSLDA has been working to get homeschoolers admitted into the military as "Tier I recruits" for at least seven years. This has been an enormously difficult enterprise, which has required thousands of hours of legal effort and dozens of face-to-face meetings with military policy makers. While HSLDA has worked and worked at this task, HSLDA's critics have suggested that homeschoolers should simply accept "Tier II" status or, if they really want to join the military, should go off and get 15 college credits so they can be accepted as Tier I.

I'm not sure I understand the criticism this time around. Are you objecting to our single-minded determination to open the doors for homeschool graduates? Do you think that HSLDA is too "gung-ho" about all this? Do you think HSLDA is claiming too much credit for the results we have achieved to date? Do you feel like the results so far aren't worth making a big deal about?

HSLDA is committed to making sure that our members are able to join the military, if they so choose. If being able to join the military is very important to you, please let me know--I'd love to have some non-HSLDA members speaking out about this issue. If you could care less about joining the military, why does it bother you that HSLDA does?
