one could make the case that Tasha Yar was hired as security chief because of her experience as a child soldier in the Turkana-IV civil wars
There's no indication that Yar was a "child soldier" at any point in her life. Her childhood story involved being a orphan street kid, caring for her younger sister, scavaging for food, and avoiding the local gangs.
The only thing we know for sure about her is that she left Turkana-IV on a Starfleet vessel while her sister remained behind to join the Cadres and considered her a traitor for not doing the same. This sort of implies that Tasha and Yashara were both active in the Cadres (or the armed militias that later BECAME the Cadres) before Starfleet gave Tasha a ride offworld.
