Summary describing your organization:: For those interested in counter-recruiting, we have a free new resource available: "A Soldier's Life". This website and video are made for high school students to discourage them from enlisting in the military. All of the production staff who created the 10-minute video are students, ranging from middle school to college. The Charlottesville Center for Peace and Justice and Veterans for Peace co-created the video with professional photographer and CCPJ Board member Richard Lord. Please feel free to share this with young people and their families. It is hard to know what the coming years will hold in terms of war and peace; if we can save even one young person from being traumatized emotionally, physically, sexually or socially, then we are doing our job correctly.
