There’s a reason they call it basic training. Because while the Army can teach new recruits how to march, hold a gun, and do push-ups, it unfortunately couldn’t give this battalion of green plastic army men the know-how to survive a surprise attack from molten copper.
Those classic green plastic army men are as cheap as cheap toys get—that’s why they’re often sold by the bucket. That doesn’t mean they’re not fun, though. So if your kid was born with a silver spoon in its mouth, it only makes sense to skip the plastic and get them a set of silver army men instead.
