U.S. Army will achieve recruiting mission, improve quality in FY19
FORT KNOX, Ky. —
The Department of the Army announced at the Pentagon today that it will achieve its regular Army recruiting goal of 68,000 new Soldiers this year.
The recruiting goal was met in large part because of an overhauled recruiting approach and an increase in recruiters.
“We are extremely proud of the Army’s recruiting efforts,” said acting secretary of the Army, Ryan D. McCarthy. “We changed the way we do business and got results. We are ensuring the Army is ready now and investing in the future."
