Moving up to adulthood the war and spy agencies take total charge and turn the education of young adults into targeted (s)kill training. What do schools like Kansas State University, the University of North Dakota and the private Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University have in common?
They offer "feet-on-the-ground" four-year degrees in drone piloting. One student graduated with a 4.0 GPA and landed a job "as a flight operator for a military contractor in Afghanistan."  Within our own borders the market is also growing for trained operators of drones for domestic surveillance, and it won't be long before the FAA, concerned about drone crashes over our heads, drops its ban so that eager, money squandering local police departments will no longer be confined to practicing with their new drone planes over warehouse parking lots. 
Don't laugh. Conceivably there will be some day MDs (Masters of Drones) and PhDs (Doctors of Drones).
Moving on, there's the Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) program on state college campuses. The Vietnam War protests torpedoed compulsory ROTC (I was forced to take two years' worth in the early 50's) and several of its programs were ejected from their campuses. In recent years however it has reappeared at some universities.
There are the online Military University, the U.S. Army War College (nothing subtle about its agenda) and the familiar military academies like West Point. Not to be left out, spies have their own "university," the probably less familiar National Intelligence University that offers undergraduate and graduate degrees in the basic and advanced science of intelligence-where the "BS" and "MS" degrees could stand for "basic and masterful spying respectively."
Finally, in Fort Bennington, Georgia there's what used to be called "The School of Assassins" because Latin American dictators and their thugs were trained there in the fine arts of torturing and killing dissidents who threatened the dictator's rule and America's parasitic corporations in their countries. The school's sordid reputation eventually became so embarrassing that the school was given a new name, the Western Hemisphere Institute for Security Cooperation. 
Military men are just dumb, stupid animals
to be used as pawns in foreign policy.
