Why do we allow our military to deliberately target underaged kids with marketing and recruitment? We shouldn't. This relic of the past is both unnecessary and immoral. It is time to put an end to it.
Given that local measures against the recruitment of minors are likely to be limited by the courts, we must also seek to change this practice at the federal level. While the task at hand is rather daunting, it is not insurmountable. In order to succeed, however, we must all be willing to speak out against this practice. We must be willing to engage our friends, neighbors, and representatives in discussions about this topic, and encourage them to also speak out against it. We invite you to join us in these efforts!
For our part, we at Stop Recruiting Kids are in it for the long haul and will keep plugging away. We thank you for your support, and we hope that we can count on you to speak out against the deliberate targeting of underage kids by the military.
It is time to right this wrong. Working together we can get it done.
