Calling all 16-year old recruits – Get your battlefield casualties action man ptsd. Common Dreams.

Veterans Today in the UK have released these short films ahead of the Armed Forces Day on June 27th.  It is also to highlight the fact that Britain recruits 16 year olds in company with 19 other countries world wide such as North Korea and Iran.

This is criticised by the UN as 16 year-olds are still technically children.

Research shows that they are also more likely to end up dead in Afghanistan than those recruited as 18 year-olds.
