Original Message COLONIE, New York - A small group of grandmothers protested at the U.S. military recruitment office in Colonie Center Tuesday afternoon after they were barred from entering the office to enlist as a statement against the Iraq War.

The dozen women, along with about 40 supporters, walked into the mall a few at a time and met in front of the second-floor recruitment office. When they arrived, they found the door locked and several mall security guards and Colonie police officers waiting for them. A few recruiting officers stared from behind the glass office door, but refused to come out.

Each of the women had brought typed statements explaining that they wanted to enlist to take the place of young people to keep them from being killed or maimed.
