For all us military folk, ask the question in reverse:
How many of your Army (or insert your branch here) buddies played with joes as kids?
All my army buddies my age played with joes. One or two odd men out, but most everybody did.

great post thats a good question. I played with gi joes but i didnt go and join the military. I did enjoy playing with breadboards my dad brought home for us cause we didnt have much money though. Now I am finishing my second undergrad degree before med.
hooray for success and the american dream.
i still play with my gi joes today

Nope no influence what so ever.I did join the USMC though when I was 20,did my 4 years and said goodbye.I don't regret it,it made me a much more resposible man and taught me how to handle authority alot better. I only joined to get the gi-bill so I could get a second chance at college. I got two degree's my first time around 1 in drinking and 1 in sleeping.My parents said "we are not paying for college for you to party and fail,so get a job and pay for it yourself or join the military and let them pay". I tried the minimum wage deal and without a student loan,it wasn't going to pay for college.............so after some long thoughts about my future and life I gave the USMC a try,now I have 4 years service and a business degree from Auburn University.It changed my life and in a good way!!!! Joes had nothing to do with it.

Loved Lego's as a kid. Used to take 'em all into one big pile. Make up my own houses, towns, etc..
Would even use 'em to make forts for the Joes.
Lincoln Logs was the other one I used. Those made great Joe forts.
