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

WASHINGTON, June 15, 2010 — The mil­i­tary ser­vices report­ed across-the-board active-duty recruit­ing suc­cess­es in May, a tra­di­tion­al­ly slow recruit­ing month just before high school grad­u­a­tions.

The Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps all met or exceed­ed their May acces­sions goals while achiev­ing year-to-date reten­tion goals, defense offi­cials report­ed.

Five of the six reserve com­po­nents also exceed­ed their May acces­sions goals. The Army Nation­al Guard inten­tion­al­ly slowed recruit­ing because it already has exceed­ed its fis­cal year-to-date goals, offi­cials said.

Recruit­ing dur­ing May, by ser­vice, was as fol­lows:

— Army: 104 per­cent of its active-duty goal, with 6,296 recruits; Army Reserve, 110 per­cent of its goal, with 1,957 recruits; and Army Nation­al Guard, 87 per­cent of its goal, with 4,429 recruits.

— Navy: 100 per­cent of its active-duty goal, with 2,534 recruits; Navy Reserve, 108 per­cent of its goal, with 468 recruits.

— Air Force: 100 per­cent of its active-duty goal, with 2,227 recruits; Air Nation­al Guard, 115 per­cent of its goal, with 546 recruits; and Air Force Reserve, 111 per­cent of its goal, with 774 recruits.

— Marine Corps: 100 per­cent of its active-duty goal, with 912 recruits; and Marine Corps Reserve, 122 per­cent of its goal, with 920 recruits.

Defense offi­cials called the May recruit­ing results par­tic­u­lar­ly encour­ag­ing lead­ing up to the tra­di­tion­al­ly busy sum­mer recruit­ing sea­son.
