The soldiers for the Coalition have to start somewhere, right? The young of the Coalition make a choice in their teens, stay with the civilian education that all shifters are entitled to OR volunteer to be trained to protect the Coalition. The teens that make this choice move into the Coalition dormitories and will get training in everything — all the subjects that the civilians learn and then skills to protect themselves and others. It’s difficult being a teen as it is, add in being a shifter? Yeah, talk about challenges.
