Yvette and Tim Coil

Yvette and Tim Coil

On March 12, Tim and Yvette Coil peacefully objected to military recruiting in the Stow Monroe Falls public library in Stow, Ohio. The library director later called the police and Tim Coil was arrested.

"My husband, Tim Coil, and I, Yvette Coil, went to the Stow Monroe Falls library in Stow, Ohio. Soon after two uniformed military recruiters arrived and proceeded to recruit a young man. Frustrated with this happening in the public library, I told a library employee that I was going to set cards on the window of the room in which the recruiters were recruiting stating my opinion of the military and this war. She said that as long as there was no confrontation she didn’t mind. On 3×5 cards I wrote, "There is no honor in fighting for a lying President," and "Dont do it! Recruiters lie!" and set them outside the window…"
