Military Meets, Exceeds Recruiting Goals

Sorry for the lack of posts--I've been busy moving from Texas to Colorado.

I did notice this article today about how the U.S. military has met or exceeded its recruiting goals. It is an AP article, so of course the author couldn't wait to get his first dig in with the first sentence. You have to keep pushing those media talking points, I guess.
Though Americans are increasingly pessimistic about the war in Iraq, the Pentagon said Tuesday it is having success enlisting new troops. The Navy and Air Force met their recruiting goals last month while the Army and Marine Corps exceeded theirs, the Defense Department announced.
