Student loan crisis, not Mideast wars, helped Army leaders exceed recruiting goals this year | Army Times

The Army surpassed their recruiting goal for 2019, signing up more than 68,000 active duty soldiers.Tthe long wars in the Middle East weren’t exactly part of the sales pitch.  The eventual outcomes of wars abroad are “not really part of the discussion”.

“One of the national crises right now is student loans, so $31,000 is [about] the average,” Muth said. “You can get out [of the Army] after four years, 100 percent paid for state college anywhere in the United States.”
