Thinking of enlisting?  Children or grandchildren of school age? 

These sites discuss school based recruitment, the enlistment process, registration, the potential upcoming draft, and conscientious objection.  We also have a speakers bureau.  If your school or class would like a veteran to discuss their experiences in the military, or you'd like to speak on the phone to a vet please email us at speaker@vetsforpeacesheboygan.org or phonevet@vetsforpeacesheboygan.org

Militarism in our schools:

American Friends Service Committee has many resources for facing and opposing militarism and military recruitment in school settings.  This site provides up-to-date information about military recruitment, what it is like inside the military, and alternatives to the military.

Enlistment concerns:

Do you know enough to enlist?  Before you join take a good look at what you're getting into.  Would you risk your life in a fight for someone else's cause?  Even soldiers who believe in fighting to defend their country have found themselves ordered to fight when they felt it was wrong.  Once you enlist you can't choose.  If you answered no or you weren't sure, you're not alone and you're not unpatriotic.  You don't need to join the military to serve your country.

Military registration:

Will there be a draft?

Thinking of becoming a conscientious objector?
