Time to mobilize the 101st Fighting Keyboarders!
The Army fell 7,000 short of recruiting targets for the year. That's the first shortfall of any size since 1999, and the largest -- in both percentage and raw numbers -- since 1979. When the recruiting target was twice the size it is now.
Numbers for the Army National Guard were worse.
Perhaps concerned Americans should start putting recruiting flyers under the wipers of all those SUVs with "support the troops" magnets.
