Project YANO has recently released a new (2013) version of its brochure, "The Military's Not Just a Job . . . It's Eight Years of Your Life." Written specifically for young people who are considering joining the military, it provides an informative alternative to the often misleading messages of military marketing.
The new edition includes revised sections on the Post-9/11 GI Bill, discrimination and sexual assault in the military, and war zone deployments. A new section on enlisting for citizenship was added, as well as current statistics on veterans' unemployment. Sources for factual statements are provided.
A version in Spanish will be available in October.
The brochure can be downloaded at http://www.projectyano.org/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=22&Itemid=40.
Bulk quantities can be ordered from the War Resisters League, http://www.warresisters.org/flyers.
The brochure is also included in a new Back-to-School Organizing Kit available at www.nnomy.org
