This group was
created to respond to revelations in the press that teen girls are regularly
raped by military recruiters.
Under the "No
Child Left Behind" Act, high schools are required to provide recruiters
with private information about students - including counseling records, drug
use, family structure, and the private cell phone numbers of underage girls.
Using this information, their power as gatekeepers, and the prestige of wearing the uniform of our country, the soldiers rape
underage girls, typically in government offices and cars. The Government Accounting Office
(GAO) reported more than 1000 incidents in two years, and that 1 of every
200 recruiters was disciplined for sexual misconduct last year alone. Nearly
all of these rapists were "handled administratively" rather than prosecuted.
