USA — Active-Duty Services Meet or Exceed June’s Recruiting Goals

WASHINGTON, July 13, 2010 — The active-duty ser­vices report­ed recruit­ing suc­cess­es for June, a tra­di­tion­al­ly active month for recruit­ing, defense offi­cials said today.

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

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.

The active-duty recruit­ing num­bers for June are as fol­lows:

  • Army: 102 per­cent of its goal; 7,438 acces­sions with a goal of 7,328.
  • Navy: 100 per­cent of its goal; 3,209 acces­sions with a goal of 3,209.
  • Marine Corps: 100 per­cent of its goal; 4,048 acces­sions with a goal of 4,046.
  • Air Force: 100 per­cent of its goal; 1,935 acces­sions with a goal of 1,931.

Four of the six reserve com­po­nents also exceed­ed their June acces­sion goals, offi­cials said. The Army and Air Nation­al Guard inten­tion­al­ly slowed June acces­sions because they are exceed­ing their fis­cal year-to-date recruit­ing goals, offi­cials said.
Loss­es for all reserve com­po­nents are with­in accept­able lim­its, offi­cials said.

The reserve-com­po­nent recruit­ing num­bers for June are as fol­lows:

  • Army Nation­al Guard: 94 per­cent of its goal; 4,544 acces­sions with a goal of 4,825.
  • Army Reserve: 110 per­cent of its goal; 1,865 acces­sions with a goal of 1,690.
  • Navy Reserve: 100 per­cent of its goal; 694 acces­sions with a goal of 694.
  • Marine Corps Reserve: 110 per­cent of its goal; 1,296 acces­sions with a goal of 1,183.
  • Air Nation­al Guard: 99 per­cent of its goal; 501 acces­sions with a goal of 507.
  • Air Force Reserve: 103 per­cent of its goal; 778 acces­sions with a goal of 754.
