Armed Forces Report Recruiting Successes for June

military-recruitingThe active-duty services reported recruiting successes for June, a traditionally active month for recruiting, defense officials said yesterday.

As a majority of recruits are recent high school graduates, the busiest recruiting months typically are May through September, said Cynthia Smith, a DoD spokeswoman.

The Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps all met or exceeded their June accession goals. The services also are at or above their fiscal year-to-date retention goals for the first nine months of fiscal 2010.

According to officials, four of the six reserve components also exceeded their June accession goals, and the Army and Air National Guard intentionally slowed June accessions because they are exceeding their fiscal year-to-date recruiting goals.
