| WASHINGTON, March 10, 2009 Defense Department officials today announced across-the-board recruiting and retention successes in February, with every service meeting or exceeding its active-duty, reserve and National Guard goals.
The statistics reflect solid recruiting performance during a month that Pentagon spokesman Bryan Whitman noted is traditionally a slow recruiting period.
Defense Department News Release on February 2009 Recruiting
expected. Spoke with a recruiter just a couple weeks ago. He said it is up across the board due to the fact there are no jobs out there.
Obama should be proud, job losses are forcing people who other wise wouldn’t go into the military because jobs have dried up and they are out of options. Getting to be like a draft again.......
Yes, a bad economy will drive up military recruiting and retention while a good economy will drive down recruiting and retention, no matter who is CIC.
