A 17-year old from South Saint Paul signed up for the Minnesota Army National Guard (with his parents' consent), but then did not show up on his ship out date.  Not news in and of itself.  What's interesting is why.  Via the Star-Tribune:

"When Valle saw a video about the rigors of basic training, he decided he had made the wrong decision. 'I didn't want to do it anymore," he said recently. "They yell in your face and you take orders.'"

What's more:

"When Valle failed a 40-question [entrance] test, he got a tutor to help him pass the second time, Olson said."
