Young adults who are contemplating whether to go to college or join the Army now have a reality series that is aimed at helping them make one of the largest decisions of their lives.
The Army's show 'Starting Strong' released a casting notice today for young adults who are looking at the possibility of joining the armed forces. Those who are considering whether to enlist have the opportunity to participate in a 3 day 'backstage pass' into a US Army base. The show is meant to educate the participants on what it may mean for them to serve and show them what happens after you join.
The US Army's reality show follows 9 young men and women through the process of working and living on an Army base. The participants do not need to enlist to be considered, rather, they would like people who are thinking about enlisting and looking for some more information about Army life. The show is not looking for actors or those trying to break into show business. They want real people who are actively considering enlisting.
The educational show is produced by former child star, Ricky Schroder who has deep feelings about what it means to serve your country. Both of Ricky's grand fathers served in WWII and he hopes the show will help those on the fence make a better decision about whether enlisting is the right course of action for their futures.
The show is also a great PR piece for the US Army. The show may get them more recruits and open up the possibility to those that never have considered enlisting. The national TV show is meant to open up the sometimes exclusive world of the military to millions of young adults who tune in.
'Srarting Strong' is looking to cast the season and is requesting that those who are considering enlistment after high school send an email with their information to be potential cast members.
The show is actively casting and you can get more information on the casting call here.
