Waivers for Recruits Increase
The Washington Post had the basic story. The New York Times added more. Money quote:
“With the Iraq war being as controversial as it is and absent any higher level call to service, it’s a very difficult challenge to all the services, particularly the Army,” said Michele Flournoy, the president and co-founder of the Center for a New American Security, a centrist research organization that focuses on national security and military policies. “The fact that the use of waivers has increased dramatically is something that should be of concern and should be watched over time.”Meanwhile, Stop-Loss continues, according to USA Today, United Press International and the Associated Press.
We repeat our call to those eligible-to-serve civilians, who support what our troops are trying to accomplish, to support them even more by becoming one of them.
