Preteen magazine makes military recruiting pitch.

“Cobblestone magazine, which is put out by Carus Publishing in Peterborough, is aimed at children ages 9-14 and is distributed nationwide to schools and libraries. Its latest issue features a cover photo of a soldier in Iraq clutching a machine gun and articles on what it’s like to go through boot camp, a rundown of the Army’s ‘awesome arsenal’ and a detailed description of Army career opportunities,” the AP reports.
