Army recruitment halts for a day

After David McSwane, a seventeen-year-old Colorado high school student reported that Army recruiters helped him obtain a fake diploma and a drug detoxification kit to circumvent regulations, the Army has ordered a one day "recruiting stand down" to address ethical issues in recruiting. Along with McSwane's complaint, other reports of aggressive tactics have recently surfaced. Link to Seattle Times, link to New York Times.
