Quality of US military recruits rises
from USA Today
The quality of military recruits has increased to its highest level in almost two decades partly because of a tough civilian job market and a more stable Iraq. Last year, 99 percent of recruits had a high school diploma before entering the service, up from 91 percent in 2006, when fighting in Iraq was near its peak and the economy was stronger. The increased interest in the armed forces means recruiters can be choosier about whom they let into the military.
