National Guard recruiting crisis

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Article below:
     
  2. $15000 to re-enlist $10000 to join, if only Mr Blair would do the same we would have no problem recruiting
     
  3. The NG also has proposed a $6000 bonus to retain LT's. The pressure on the reserve components should be reduced after this year. Right now 40% of the troops in Iraq are reservists. Next rotation will see zero national guard troops and a small number of reservists[support troops].
     
  4. Of course the establishment would need to be dropped to five to fund it...

  6. So where is 42nd Division going then? :!:
     
  7. The 42d ID HQ is already in theater. We are talking about the next rotation
    not this one [OIF 4].
