cleaning Captain Obvious trope sinkhole use, project thread here
* PinkMist: Averted due partially to the need to avoid a rating higher than T, and partially to the fact that [[RealityIsUnrealistic 5.56mm bullets rarely cause that kind of]] {{Gorn}}. Plus, the game is a [[JoinTheArmyTheySaid recruiting tool]]; people are likely to be less open to joining the Army if their death was just rendered in agonizingly gory detail. [[CaptainObvious Those to whom such things would appeal are generally more unstable than Army recruiters would like]]; folks of that persuasion [[TakeThat should go sign up with]] [[InterserviceRivalry the Marines.]]

* DrillSergeantNasty: Averted, the meanest Drill Sergeants still aren't that mean. There actually are files in the installation for a pretty nasty Drill Sergeant, but he [[DummiedOut does not appear in game]]. ** Which is actually an accurate representation of the Army's drill instructors today. The [[SemperFi Marines]] on the other hand...

Hottip cleanup.
Somewhere around the crack of the 21st century, higher-ups at the [[YanksWithTanks United States Army]] sought for a way to remedy their waning recruitment rates and number of new recruits dropping out of training, and came up with a plan to get American teenagers interested in joining the Army: A free [[hottip:*:(except to American taxpayers, who pay about two cents each for the project)]] online FirstPersonShooter based on ''VideoGame/{{Counter-Strike}}'' that educates players on the Army's principles and technical aspects through simulated "first-hand" experiences.

I don't know what language it is, or how it's spelled. Help?

* FirstPersonGhost: Subverted in ''America's Army 3'', you can see your soldier's body when you slide or look down, but when you interact with objects such as doors, valves, etc. they seem to be operated by telekinesis.
