Army, Army Guard to Reach Recruiting Goals

The Army National Guard is on pace to meet its recruiting goals for the fiscal year ending later this month.

The active-component Army, too, is on pace to meet its goals for the year. Last year, all three Army components failed to meet their recruiting goals.

Maj. Rob Perino, a spokesman for the National Guard Bureau, said the Army Guard projects it will recruit 39,000 soldiers into the force by end of the fiscal year on Sept. 30.
