Army Reenlistment Is Up

We should be proud to know that reenlistment among our young people is strong in the U.S. Army:
The Army was 15% ahead of its re-enlistment goal of 34,668 for the first six months of fiscal year 2006, which ended March 31. More than 39,900 soldiers had re-enlisted, according to figures scheduled to be released today by the Army.
And also . . .
"The Army has met or exceeded its goals for retention for the past five years, records show."
This is bad news for the left, which has been peddling the lie that no one will reenlist knowing they will be sent to that quagmire in Vietnam, er, Iraq.

The NYT claims that officers are not re-enlisting.

I know this first hand. I had to wait almost a year for my SRB due to the volumn of reenlistments. It always makes me laugh when i read those articles. I actual argued with an anti-recruiter and when i asked him his experience with the military he said (i am not kidding) "i have recieved tons of fliers and emails to join the military." that is the extent and depth of his military experience. sad.

Rob at Sayanythingblog.com takes that story from the NYT apart.
