Army Exceeds Recruiting Target--Again

America, f*ck yeah:

So far this fiscal year, which ends September 30, the Army has recruited 51,612 soldiers, almost 2,000 more than it hoped to at this point. . . . Despite back-to back combat deployments, the Army is also retaining soldiers at high rate: some two-thirds of all soldiers eligible to re-enlist have done so, according to Army data which includes active and reserves.
This is especially surprising given the oft-repeated "fact" that America's soldiers have "lost faith" in the mission and are "demoralized".
