>>> Still haven’t heard how the recuitment of the class of 2011 or the retention of the enlistes od the class of 2007 who are completing their 1st hitch is going.

Apparently no mass exodus from the services. No tumbleweeds careening through the recruiting offices.

June 29, 2011

All four active-duty military services have met or exceeded recruitment goals as of May for this fiscal year.

According to a Defense Department release, the Army recruited 44,950 new soldiers, above its 44,200 goal. The Navy recruited 20,942 people, its exact goal number, according to the release. Air Force ranks were also right on the money, with 18,444 “accessions.”

The Marine Corps beat its recruiting goal by 39 people to bring in 14,995 to the Devil Dogs’ side. Reserve components also hit or exceeded their recruiting goals, and the release states that retention goals are on track so far this fiscal as well.

In an attempt to address retention bloat, about 16,000 sailors are being considered for involuntary separation from the Navy because they fall into 31 overmanned job categories, or ratings.
