Wisconsin enlistment plummets

Cap Times says, “The Army signed up 27 percent fewer recruits in Wisconsin last month than expected, putting it behind schedule for reaching its full-year recruiting goal, officials said Thursday. This was the first time it had fallen short of a target since May 2000. The defense department said recruiting has become more difficult for a variety of reasons, including concern that once in uniform a soldier will be sent to fight in Iraq.”
