Federal law requires schools that receive federal aid to give military recruiters the names, addresses, and phone numbers of high school juniors and seniors, and to provide military recruiters with the same access to students as employers and college recruiters. Any parent or guardian wanting this information withheld from the military must make objection, in writing, within two weeks of receiving this notice, to the principal or other person in charge of the school which the student is attending. If this is your preference, a request must be made on a yearly basis and should specifically indicate withholding from the military only.
