Help young people resist pressures by military recruiters

Every year the U.S. military spends BILLIONS OF DOLLARS trying to recruit young people to join the military.  Some of their methods are VERY INTRUSIVE.  Some are VERY DECEPTIVE.

A few organizations help young people with “consumer protection” information to help them resist the pressures.  I recommend the National Network Opposing the Militarization of Youth (nnomy.org).

 

Also, the guests I interviewed on my September 2022 TV program mentioned counter-recruitment efforts.  You can WATCH the video and/or READ the thorough summary I typed up (with links to additional information) at this link:  https://parallaxperspectives.org/some-people-in-the-military-refuse-orders
