Our military services have no business recruiting children under the age of 18. Each year hundreds of thousands of kids in the US are actively recruited by our military, and each year well over 10,000 of these kids under 18 join the armed forces.
This petition asks our elected officials to pass legislation barring all forms of military recruitment of children by the armed services, including the STARBASE and Junior ROTC programs. It also asks our representatives to change existing legislation to prevent schools from releasing student contact information to military recruiters.
