Counter recruiting at the HS.

Three of us handed out flyers at the Poughkeepsie HS as students left the building for the day.

School gets out at 2:45, and by 3:00 it is all over. But in that short time we passed out about 100 of our counter-recruiting flyers and about 100 of the folded poster explaining why the military is a bad deal. Almost everyone takes the flyer, especially when told that we are trying to convince them not to join the military. Students, as always, were very friendly.

We are now completely out of materials, and probably should order more. We have the money, if people think we should continue doing this. There is also the possibility of going into the schools when a recruiter is there. Maybe we should stress alternatives to the military for students without money for college.
