Actually, the Armed Forces have been hitting their quotas for a number of months now. The reason you don't hear about it is because it is POSITIVE news, which won't be aired on OTA news outlets. You see, they're libs like yourself, and anything that helps the administration is hurtful to them.
As for the bonus, there has always been a bonus of some sort. The fact that it has been increased is due to the fact that they want enlistees of a higher caliber, and this is a more cost effective way to entice them to come aboard. However, hopefully the draft will be instituted so you won't have to worry so much about the troop levels. The way the collective young population feels is most likely ambivilance, laziness and fear. But I don't blame you, per se.....I blame your parents.
Better act quick if you want YOUR 30K !! :tonka:
