Grandmothers are coming to the MRS (Marine Recruiting Station) to do the Raging Grannies Action: going inside the station to talk with the recruiters, asking them what are recruiters telling our grandchildren about becoming soldiers; to dialogue about their jobs; to insist that Grandmothers be recruited, and not our grandchildren.

Some grandmothers are willing to risk arrest, others will not. Bring your grandmother! Come with your granddaughter!
