    If You Think Itís Easy to Get Into the U.S. Military, Think Again: Rising Number Turned Away from Service

    By Kevin Boyd 6 hours ago



    Having trouble finding a job in the Obama economy? Well, youíre not alone.
    Traditionally, the armed forces have served as an alternate employment option for young men and women. However, even they are now turning down close to 80% of those seeking to join up.
    Washington Times reports:
    Army Sgt. 1st Class Terrence Hoard told the Kansas City Star that his recruitment office once needed to sign up 16 to 20 soldiers per month to meet recruitment goals. Today, he can get by with 10 to 12.

    ďWeíre turning down twice as many as before,Ē he told the paper, which reported that four of every five adults who seek to join the military in 2014 do not make the cut.

    The U.S. Army hopes to hit 57,000 recruits for active duty this year. Itís on pace to do just that, even while applying a stricter set of standards as it pertains to physical fitness, appearance (i.e., tattoos), intelligence test results and an applicantís criminal history.

    The Navy is no different.
    The biggest reason why the military is able to turn away so many prospective recruits? Itís downsizing, as the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq are coming to an end. On top of those force reductions, the military plans to reduce its personnel numbers down even further- as a result of budget cuts proposed by the Obama administration.
    While the number of armed forces personnel declines, the quality of personnel is increasing as the military takes only the best prospective recruits. But it remains to be seen if the armed forcesí quality of personnel will make up for its drastic reduction in size.
