SOY visit to Akins HS

Tami, Hart and I had a good visit yesterday at Akins HS for their two lunch periods.  They asked us to bring the chin-up bar outside, so we set up in the breezeway outside the cafeteria.  Our newly stenciled t-shirts went fast.  We met one student who said he was already enlisted as a 17 year-old and had done basic training during the summer at Ft. Benning.  He was curious about us and talked with Hart about military realities like the objectification of people that begins early during basic training -- leading to more and more separatism between "us" and "them."  Hart shared some info and a GI Rights Hotline card with him.
