I never understood this whole "appeal to the youth" part of Tom's plan.
Those cold shoulders were easy to ignore when the jobless rate was above 6 percent and the Army’s most dependable recruiter, Sgt. Hard Times, was driving high school graduates to enlist. But now, unemployment has fallen to 50-year lows.
“Whenever that happens, the Army faces recruiting challenges,” said David R. Segal, a sociologist who advises the military on recruiting. “But they have always doubled down on areas where they know they can get results. This is a 180-degree turn.”
The Army has begun redirecting its marketing toward digital-native urbanites and suburbanites who are eager for excitement. Out went the Army’s sponsorship of a drag-racing team; in are teams of soldiers who compete in mixed martial arts, CrossFit, and competitive video gaming, or e-sports.
Ads on network sports broadcasts are being scaled back in favor of targeted ads on Facebook and Twitch, Amazon’s live-streaming gaming platform. Recruiters will soon be required, not just encouraged, to post on Instagram.
“Kids aren’t watching network TV any more,” General Muth said. “They are not at the mall. And they don’t answer calls from numbers they don’t know. But we know they want to serve their community, so we have to start that conversation with them.”

Raising more money for what?
What have they done with the money they’ve already raised?
I can’t think of anything they’ve done that cost money, why do they want more
Can someone here think of one thing they’ve done that cost 2 million dollars?
Can anyone think of anything? they've done that cost even 2 dollars, let alone 2 million.
In particular, we are looking for a Chief Executive Officer at TTS AAS
Walsh Pasulka, Nolan Decline Comment on Alleged Security Personnel
A recently distributed Unknown Country Newsletter suggested an interview Whitley Strieber recorded with Dr. Diana Walsh Pasulka was reviewed by "security personnel" and subsequently not cleared for release. ...
...The following statement was provided by Strieber:
I don’t know what security personnel were involved. We were asked to let the interview be listened to by two of the people we discussed in it. Both of these people are mentioned anonymously in Diana‘s book. I therefore sent them a copy of it. We were told that "security" didn’t want the second interview aired. As we had agreed before hand to do this, we complied. I don’t know anything more than this.
"I respect Whitley but have no comments," Walsh Pasulka replied in part to an email seeking clarification.
The implication is Walsh Pasulka's sources, who reportedly were issued security clearances, acted as liaisons to "security personnel," who nixed the second part of the interview. Similar reports surfaced surrounding Walsh Pasulka's previous interviews. The circumstances seem rather irregular and many questions remain....
An email was sent to [Gary] Nolan seeking comment on the possibility he is "James". He was also asked about the alleged "security personnel" who reportedly reviewed the Dreamland podcast interview.
"I have no interest in commenting on rumors," Nolan replied, adding a smiley emoji.
"But I do support the work you and others do. It’s a hard road we all have taken to find the truth."
... An argument could be made that those involved have responsibilities to clarify the circumstances and minimize sensational speculation. That might particularly be true within a genre which has historically spread tales long on drama and short on facts.... Unfortunately, it is not currently entirely clear whether they are fighting it or complicit in its cultivation.

....I would say that it was a game that was played to strengthen the narrative presented in "American Cosmic" to make it appear more like its the real deal.
The "invisibles" more like a load of old bollocks...
