U.S. Military Assistance To Governments and Government-Supported Armed Groups Using Child Soldiers 2002-2008
by Rachel Stohl and Doug Tuttle
The State Department's 2007 Human Rights report revealed eight countries where children have been recruited and/or used as child soldiers by government or government supported armed groups. CDI’s research has revealed that of these eight countries, the United States has provided six with military assistance since 2002.

The goal of the Straus Military Reform Project is to secure far more effective military forces and much more ethical and professional military and civilian leadership at significantly lower budget levels.
We would like to thank Philip A. Straus Jr. and family for their generous support.
