US Army falls 25% short of recruiting goal

Fox News | Oct. 1, 2022

The Army fell about 15,000 soldiers — or 25% — short of its recruitment goal this year, officials confirmed Friday, despite a frantic effort to make up the widely expected gap in a year when all the military services struggled in a tight jobs market to find young people willing and fit to enlist.

While the Army was the only service that didn’t meet its target, all of the others had to dig deep into their pools of delayed entry applicants, which will put them behind as they begin the next recruiting year on Saturday.

The worsening problem stirs debate about whether America’s fighting force should be restructured or reduced in size if the services can’t recruit enough, and could also put added pressure on the National Guard and Reserve to help meet mission requirements

  1. More interesting would be to know the quality of the average recruit today compared to years past — they must have metrics for that.

  2. No one wants the clot-shot that will be piled on with other “vaccines” when troops go to theaters of war. Their chances of dying from pharma toxic inoculations will be far greater than taking a bullet.

  3. Plus the ‘woke’ factor that denies & prohibits any & all legitimate acknowledgement of objectively observable differences between genders & among races because to do so tags one as ‘sexist/racist/white supremest’ which our nursing home resident in chief has declared to be the #1 domestic terrorist threat.
