Has Call of Duty Driven Hundreds of Teens into Military Service?

In today's installment of Speak Up on Kotaku, commenter Tony Danza suggests the Call of Duty series from Activision is responsible for countless teenagers deciding to join the military and be all that they could be in the games.

If there's one thing Call of Duty has done right, it's trick hundreds of teenagers into signing up for the military. I wonder how many stupid kids got recruited thinking that they would be able to do the shit they play in those games. I'd wager big money it's at least in the thousands. Thoughts?
