Truth in Recruitment requests contributions to make sure military recruiters follow school administration guidelines and parental wishes, before teens make a life-changing decision.
The Santa Barbara High School Gender and Sexuality Alliance club along with Truth in Recruitment created a lunchtime display of tombstones representing 18 and 19 year olds who were killed in action in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Most of these teens enlisted in the military while they were still in high school.
In some parts of our community, teens are being approached every month in our schools by professional military recruiters.
