Military Myths CoverA short video that focuses on youth of color and the racial/economic profiling politics behind recruitment. “‘Military Myths’ takes a critical look at the military’s promises of travel, money for education and job training. It considers how media representations of war and military life compare to the reality of war told by veterans who have actually been there. In addition, interviews with activists and students are presented along with statistics from the Veterans Administration, CCCO, SLDN, and recent Pentagon studies that lay clear the myths of military life.”  28 minutes
