DoD announced today that the armed forces are getting off on the right foot in the new fiscal year with regard to recruitment. Last year marked the first time since 1999 that the Army actually missed its announced recruiting goal. The Army had sought a total of 80,000 new soldiers and wound up with 73,000. Seditious elements within the unreality-based community had reason to celebrate after their efforts provided at least some help in reducing enlistments during the first seven months of last year.
October is actually the fifth month in a row that the Army has met its goal and those responsible for recruitment indicate that they feel that the right resource mix is now available to sustain their efforts. The numbers are especially gratifying in light of the drop in the unemployment rate to 5%. Making the numbers in a full employment economy is a very positive sign.
It's enough to drive disloyal lefties to tears.
