Army in Worst Recruiting Slump in Decades

"The Army is closing the books on one of the leanest recruiting years since it became an all-volunteer service three decades ago, missing its enlistment target by the largest margin since 1979 and raising questions about its plans for growth.

Many in Congress believe the Army needs to get bigger — perhaps by 50,000 soldiers over its current 1 million — in order to meet its many overseas commitments, including the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. The Army already is on a path to add 30,000 soldiers, but even that will be hard to achieve if recruiters cannot persuade more to join the service.

Officials insist the slump is not a crisis."- Yahoo news



Is it time for the draft? Well, maybe not yet, but if America invades another terrorist region, the draft may become an option. What do you guys think?

  • That's a shame- I thought there were plenty of soldiers in Iraq.
