like uh, you know....if you want someone to represent critical opposing views to the military please evaluate them for articulation and debating skills. this is just difficult to listen to.I support recruiting in high schools. When I thought the "counter-recruiting" was about discussing other options, even things like Americorps, etc, it sounded fine.
No. It is about talking kids out of joining the military. Grrr.

Counter-Recruiters · Think Out Loud:
This week, the Portland Public School Board voted to allow "counter-recruiters" at Portland's public high schools. Counter-recruiters represent organizations like American Friends Service Committee and the Military & Draft Counseling Project that provide information about military service and recruitment that is meant to dissuade students from joining the military.
