The Military and Teens The Ultimate Teen Guide by Kathlyn Gay

The Military and Teens covers the major issues young adults should consider before making a decision to join the armed forces. Although each branch of the military provides print and electronic materials on what it has to offer enlistees, very few YA books take a pro-and-con look at military service. Moreover, commercial military books mostly cover specific wars or give tips on surviving induction and training.


While not strictly within the military history boundaries, two new young adult books address a critically important audience- potential enlistees. A recent release from Scarecrow Press, The Military and Teens by Kathlyn Gay, says publisher Edward Kurdyla, is a balanced, thoughtful but brutally honest guide for teens interested in joining the military. -- .
