You’ve probably heard the ads and the recruiter’s sales pitch. Sounds pretty good, doesn’t it? All advertising does. But if military life doesn’t live up to the advertising, you can’t bring your enlistment agreement back to the recruiter for a refund. You are obligated to the military for a total of eight years, including time in the reserves when you could be recalled.

This essential counter military recruitment pamphlet, produced by Project on Youth and Non-Military Opportunities (Project YANO) includes information that should be seen by every person considering joining the military. Activists across the country distribute this flyer in schools, at job fairs and community gatherings.
