Army Has Great Recruiting Year

Sphere: Related Content

Well lookee here. The libs have been telling us that people are against the war, especially the soldiers. Then why the hell have they had the best recruiting year since 1997?

At the start of this recruiting year, which began Oct. 1, 2005, many questioned whether the Army would reach 80,000, given the many alternative career options available to young people and the growing unpopularity of the Iraq war. But a package of new financial incentives, new recruiting approaches and a bigger recruiting corps did the trick.

Plus the unspoken fact that those who are old enough now to enlist were just beginning to understand the world when Muslim terrorists knocked down two buildings in NYC and slammed another into the Pentagon. They have seen war every day on TV. They know the consequences of their actions and still chose to enlist. They know that we are facing a serious enemy who threatens us. They are smarter than most give them credit for and I for one am proud they are my neighbors.

Patriotism is not dead... At least for those citizens not associated with the left.
