    Chief Petty Officer Tori Novo says she finds herself saying "no" to young people who want to ship out to sea with the Navy more often than she used to. A recruiter for seven years, Novo says she has seen the standards for enlisting in the Navy become tougher. And that means more young people who desperately want to join the Navy -- for a career with a steady paycheck, for educational opportunities, for a chance to serve their country -- don't make the cut. Many of those applicants -- the ones "who would beg on their hands and knees...

While the tombstones around him say where the soldiers served, the granite slab marking the 23-year-old's grave doesn't list a military campaign — at least, not one the Army recognizes.
