U.S. Military Exceeds Recruiting Goals in December
Despite what the Pentagon says, there is growing evidence that the military is dangerously stretched in Iraq
Even as the Pentagon claims that the military is making great strides against the insurgency in Iraq, there are growing signs that U.S. forces may be near the breaking point.
The Department of Defense (DoD) reports that all active duty branches of the U.S. Military exceeded their recruiting goals during the month of December 2005. In addition, DoD reports that all services met or exceeded their overall retention (reenlistment) goals for December and are projected to meet their retention goals for fiscal year 2006.We certainly wouldn't want actual facts to get in the way of the leftist moonbats!
Both the U.S. Army and Marine Corps reported recruiting 106 percent of their projected monthly goals, while the Air Force and Navy achieved 101 percent of their recruiting goals for the month.
