    WASHINGTON - Pentagon officials say it's not a crisis, but it is a major concern — a battle here at home to win the hearts and minds of potential new recruits.

    After more than three years of war in Iraq and Afghanistan, the all-volunteer military is facing its toughest test yet.

    In April, the Army missed its recruiting goal for the third month in a row, short by nearly 2,800 recruits, or 42 percent off its target.




    Oops. Maybe some(more) of you people on this board can join up :D
