Is it "OK" for Armed Forces recruiting tactics to promote and glorify war and violence?

I think most people might take some exception with some of the tactics used by some Armed Forces recruiting folks who sometimes 'coerce' or otherwise attempt to influence 'impressionable and vulnerable youths' toward considering a career in a 'voluntary' military force (Army, Navy, Marine, Air Force, Coast Guard, other).

Granted, our country needs a strong and able military force to help ensure social order and protection from any who might wish to cause harm to us, and surely we want our military forces to have opportunity to communicate with potential new recruits, but at what age should children be introduced to the realities of what a military force is truly all about?
