Kid dressed as Army recruiter misses candy goal by 20%
It was one big trick on the pretend Staff Sgt.
HADDONFIELD, Ill. — The military’s recruiting woes aren’t just impacting the active-duty services. Gary Strode, 9, decided to dress as an Army recruiter this year for Halloween and missed his candy goal by a shocking 20 percent.
“For years I was the star candy-getter,” said pretend Army Staff Sgt. Strode. “You could count on me to bring in way more Milky Ways, Reese’s Cups, and M&M’s than anyone else on the block. But this year, I barely brought in enough Skittles to meet my parents’ candy retention goals.”
“I hear even Beverley [Chase] missed her goal by 10%, and she’s dressed as an Air Force recruiter,” he added.
According to sources, while many adults in the neighborhood admired Strode’s costume, their support fell short when it came to providing quality treats. For make-believe Staff Sgt. Strode, the night was one big trick.
