The age and maturity level of the students being presented with the DARPA
message is important to me. Is it alright to have, for instance, army
recruiters at colleges? How about high schools? How about elementary
schools?

At what age is a person mature enough
* to go to war (rhetorically the answer is "never" but let's go beyond that)
* play war games (cowboys and indians, Americas Army First Person Shooter)
* make war machines (case in point)

The Army currently recruits in high schools (except for San
Francisco<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/San_Francisco_Board_of_Education#JROTC>,
if I recall correctly). But certainly not in elementary schools.
