Military Recruiting Update through July 2011
All services are meeting their recruitment objectives for the current fiscal year ending September 30. In fact, only the Army National Guard is below its expected quota to date, but it is still anticipated that they will make their mission in FY-2011. [With the end of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" September 20, now is an opportune time for LGBT veterans interested in serving to contact a National Guard recruiter.]
What an improvement from the dark days of 2005. Clearly, there are economic reasons, but we hope that all Americans are also realizing that we have individual and collective responsibilities to our country.
