I understand the Marines and Army are now recuriting hundreds of convicted felons. Just read it yesterday. It was probably posted here.
Do the math. It’s an very, very small percentage.
They took twice as many as they did last year. But it’s only 500 out of 180,000 recruits.
That though was the lead in our local paper — the “large increase” in the number of felons that they HAD to take to “meet their numbers”.
Frankly, if they got 180,000 people last year, did they really need those last 250 to make their numbers? Unlikely.
