Still nothing

All branches and components met or exceeded their goals in recruiting. Those which didn't failed on purpose because of meeting end strength.

No one mentions it. Recruiting success is only mentioned in the pattern of "only the military is hiring 18-25 year olds".

Personally I'm preparing to have my unit go into Reset in the ARFORGEN cycle. With the unit resetting, Iraq on the way to losing its combat zone tax exemption status, and Afghanistan on course to have victory declared in time for the 2012 elections I might wind up the most senior NCO in the Army to have a bare right shoulder.

My better half was well on his way to becoming the oldest NCO without a combat patch ... of course, then he was sent to the 10th Mountain. :D

I think he'd prefer having a bare right shoulder after this deployment. Common sense does not seem to reign in today's Army and specifically not in today's 10th Mountain.
