As the media and Democrats work hard to denigrate the military’s mission in Iraq and create a pervasive atmosphere of discord with our armed services, I am proud to read and hear that the military services hit their recruiting goals in November. God Bless our men and women in the armed services.
The Army, which is bearing the brunt of the work in Iraq, did the best. It signed up 6,485 new recruits in November compared with its target of 6,150 – meaning 105 percent of its goal.
All the services turned in similar performances in October as well, meaning they so far are meeting their goals for the 2007 budget year that began Oct. 1.
According to figures released Tuesday by the Pentagon, the Navy signed up 2,887 recruits last month, or 100 percent of its goal; Marines signed up 2,095, or 104 percent of its 2,012 target and the Air Force signed up all 1,877 it was seeking. via My Way News
