Sure, they've been spifing it up over the years and it'll certainly be a valuable tool for the now-elidgable didn't-graduate-highschool crowd that has been chomping at the bit for reliable a meal ticket they can actually score.

This "videogame" as they are calling it is actually a training simulation used by the Army for combat training. I went through the thing when it came to my regional airshow, went through it twice. And trust me on this one, it is hardly violent in comparison to many of the popular videogames on the market currently.
And cbass, yes they are actually using a videogame for recruiting purposes. It is known as America's Army, it is a first-person shooter created and supported by the Army. It has proven to be extremely popular.
