Stealth recruitment?


Parents in Hudson are upset at Cobblestone magazine, designed for 9 -to -14-year-olds, for an issue that some feel was essentially a recruiting pitch for the Army.

The New Hampshire-based magazine, which is distributed to schools nationwide, dedicated its latest issue to the Army, and included articles on career opportunities in the Army and what it's like to go through boot camp.

The editors of the magazine told the Globe in a front-page story today that the idea for the issue was theirs alone.
