The Most British Recruiting Advertisement Ever Created

A British military recruiting advertisement pushes a real sense of belonging, and it is the most British thing I have seen this month.

Two chaps are sitting at a table playing cards. On the chest of one is a row of medals, on the chest of the other is a poppy pinned to his collar. Clearly they are veterans of times long past. The overall message is that joining the military will give you a sense of belonging for the rest of your life. However, when you take a closer look, this is the most British thing you will see this month.

To our brothers in the Royal Military, thank you for everything you have done over the years. Whenever we Americans found ourselves picking a fight, you guys were always right there with us hooking and jabbing, few to no questions asked. We will always owe you guys a great debt because of your actions. For the Americans reading this, I suggest watching the film Kilo Two Bravo on Netflix if you have not already.
