Abstract:The recent National Guard recruitment music video, Citizen Soldier , was analyzed to examine its theoretical implications on recruitment and public support of military action in relationship to the current conflict in Iraq. The goal was to determine if the National Guard, and subsequently the Department of Defense, was utilizing frontier mythology and cultural militarism to manipulate the message communicated to the general public concerning the National Guard's role in current and future military actions. The social and psychological impact was determined by an examination of literature, an analysis of frontier mythology and cultural militarism as influences on modern society, an examination of John Wayne's often maligned Vietnam war narrative, The Green Berets , a discussion of the current role of the National Guard in Iraq, and an analysis of the Citizen Soldier film based on basic propaganda techniques and themes inspired by frontier mythology. Results were anecdotal rather than empirical. Narrative based evidence does imply that cultural myths and their subsequent influence on militarism in society are effective persuasive techniques to manipulate public response to potential service in the military.
