Description

With the help of an undercover high school journalist KCNC revealed that Army recruiters in suburban Denver advised the 17 year old student about how to obtain a fake diploma and beat a drug test. After the story aired, KCNC received tips from across the country about similar recruiting practices. Following the broadcast, the military froze recruitment efforts for a day and re-examined recruitment policies and procedures.
