April Army Recruiting Statistics

Courtesy Army Times:

Active-duty Army: Recruited 5,684, Goal 5,400, 105%.

Army Reserve: Recruited 1,300, Goal 1,742, 75%.

Army National Guard: Recruited 5,875, Goal 6,530, 90%.

So, the active-duty Army recruited 284 people more than its monthly quota for April 2006. Does that mean everything is going perfectly? Well, only if you think that recruiters should spend their time with Persons With Autism.

Recruited vs enlisted. Apples & oranges.

I'm not sure how accurate this is, but weren't the recruitment goals lowered? The military meeting it's recruitment goals means nothing if the goals were lowered, so that it seems that things are going well.

If things are going well, then why is there a huge amount of pressure on military recruiters? Why is there a huge increase in the number of recruiters if things are 'peachy'?

Re-enlistment rates are great though. Splain that how bout it?

Either they re-enlist (and get the bonus) or get transferred to a soon-to-deploy unit and get stop-lossed (without the bonus).

Some choice.
