US Military Recruiting for December 2005

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. Compare the target figures for recent months with the target figures from the same month last year.

  2. Never under-estimate young mens desire to seek adventure.

    To me the interesting figures show the strongest results in the services most likely to see action. Navy and Naval reserve are struggling by comparison.
     
  3. Easy enough to meet goals, if you cut them mate.
     
  4. Where have their monthly target recruiting figures been cut? The target figures on that site have remained pretty constant as far as I can see.
     
  5. The Navy and Air Force are downsizing.
     
  6. Considering they are taking more category 4 soldiers than they have in years I don't think the numbers tell the whole story.
     
  7. This happened a few months ago, I think abour May/July. They slashed the recruiting targets by 25% or more, at the same time as they were expanding the size of the Army by 30,000 men.
