I think if 100% debt forgiveness (loans, credit cards, cars, mortgage, etc...) for service would entice a lot of people to enlist.

We would all have to be financially broken with no job, once this has happened only then could they gather up the fit and healthy to fight in the lands deemed to be the War Zones.
City of Kinney
KINNEY, MINNESOTA 55758
July 13, 1977
Honorable Cyrus Vance
Secretary of State
BE IT RESOLVED that the City Council of the City of Kinney, in Kinney, Minnesota, has decided to secede from the United States of America, and become a foreign country. Our area is large enough for it. We are twelve square blocks, three blocks wide and four blocks long. We will be similar to Monaco. It is much easier to get assistance as a foreign country, which we need badly, and there is no paper work to worry about. If necessary, we will be glad to declare war and lose. However, if this is a requirement, we would appreciate being able to surrender real quick, as our Mayor works as a nurse in a hospital, and most of our council members work in a nearby mine and cannot get much time off from work.
CITY COUNCIL OF VILLAGE OF KINNEY
Mary Anderson, Mayor
Margaret Medure, Clerk
Al Helmin, Councilman
Lloyd Linnell, Councilman
Myron Holcomb, Councilman
Jim Randall, Village Attorney
