The WHITTIER AREA PEACE & JUSTICE COALITION presents
Are recruiters telling you (your son, your daughter) that there are no jobs?
Are they saying the military is the only way to get an education?
Are they telling you that you have NO future except the military?
Military Recruiters LIE! about a lot of things; like:
Money they will give you for education (it comes out of your pay)
Whether or not you will be stationed in Iraq (everyone is going!)
What skills you will acquire (most military jobs do NOT translate to civilian careers)
How long you will have to serve (the current backdoor draft means they can keep you as long as they want)
Once you sign all 'promises' are null and void.
THERE ARE OTHER OPTIONS!!
BEFORE YOU LITERALY SIGN YOU LIFE AWAY
