Protesting Army Recruitment Video GameJune 19, 2009
Moreno Valley, CA
My family went to a Harkin Theater. I was outraged when I saw a video game from goarmy.com in the arcade. Note: March Air Reserve Base is a big part of the economy of this small town in Riverside County.
Our four-person, three-generation, chapter wrote letters to Harkin's corporate office. I received a call within hours, but wanted a written answer to why our tax dollars were being used for a recruiting tool in a private establishment.
Long story short, the game has been replaced with "Police Trainer". Personally objectionable? Yes! Better than a recruiting tool for the Army? Absolutely!
Keep the faith tiny chapters. CODEPINK gives us "Rock Star" strength thanks to our brave leadership who put themselves out there daily. To all the chapters, I pay homage. At rallies, or when we are speaking, a measure of respect is offered to anyone wearing the Pink, because of our work.
