Re: Being a Military Recruiter Must Suck

The thing is, even if UCSC wanted to ban recruiters from campus there would be some heavy legal shit to wade through. The Solomon Amendment, passed by Congress in 1995, threatens to withhold federal funds from schools that deny access to military recruiters. That’s right, federal law punishes schools that refuse to be the bitch of the United States Military."

Believe it or not, there are student that may want to join the military... Why should others be allowed to deny them the opportunity to look into this venue?

Apparently, freedom of speech is a one way road in many areas. I would have no problem with students setting up a booth like the military branches that advertises their anti-military views - but to actively deny the recruiters is not at all acceptable.
