Reuters. This year is going to be an interesting test of the government run market for military services. The
active-duty U.S. Army missed its recruiting target for February by 27.5
percent, and had slipped about 6 percent behind its year-to-date goal
for fiscal 2005, which ends September 30, the Army Recruiting Command
said. That marked the first time since May 2000 the Army missed a
monthly recruiting goal. “It is a matter of concern,” said chief
Pentagon spokesman Lawrence Di Rita, adding the Army had increased
enlistment bonuses and boosted by 20 percent its number of recruiters.
