On memorial day weekend the Peninsula Raging Grannies and friends counter-recruited outside the Mountain View, California Wal-Mart using songs, chants, and the general, all-in-good-fun,raucous behavior the Grannies are known for.

Protesting the showing of Marine Corps recruiting videos the Grannies chanted and sang such things as "Hear closely what recruiters say. They will trick you anyway. Wal-Mart give them free air time. We think that's a corporate crime." and "Mine eyes have seen the coming of recruitment TV ands. They are shown throughout this Wal-Mart store and it make the Grannies mad!"
