Would an Army general lie? (Of course he would!) The Army and USMC have developed an new brand of math, where they simply declare that their recruiting goal was about 500 bodies less than what ever low-lying fruit ends up on their doorstep. Since the SCLM ask no questions--recruiting dilemma solved!

CNN Article

The above article from June 9th mentions they had lowered their MAY goal 1350 to 6700. It also mentions remaining goals for the year range from 5,650 to 9,250 a month. But they would need to get more than 9760 each month to reach 80,000 by end of September.

So it appears they've lowered monthly goals (and probably lowered June early in the month or last month) but not their annual goal. So even reaching monthly goals won't make their annual goal. Creative accounting.

2005-06-30T16:11:00.000+10:00

Hey, how do we know the Army isn't also double dipping on deferred recruitments???

You know, some kid signs up in December but doesn't actually start his hitch in May. How do we know this isn't being counted twice?

According to my sister, who's Army Reserve, this shit happens all the time when people request and are granted unit transfers. The old unit keeps them on the books to keep unit strength numbers up.

2005-06-30T15:54:00.000+10:00

Look at this DoD page that has the numbers for Oct 1 2004 - May 31 2005.

Says for Army,
Actual = 40964
Target = 49285

If June is
Actual = 6150
Target = 5650

Then Year To Date is
Actual = 47114
Target = 54935

But they're still promising to get to 80,000 by end of year, which is Sept. 30.

So, their target level has to be 8,355 per month for the remaining 3 months and to hit that plus make up for the shortfall, it does come to the 11,000 per month figure (10962 to be more precise).

Obviously, that ain't gonna happen.

2005-06-30T15:22:00.000+10:00

Well, if the article posted by Atrios is right, the army is basically going to have to make it 11,000 per month for the next 3 months, regardless of what their "official" goals are. The article points out that 9,250 is the top goal for any month. So they're gonna have to beat their top-maximum goal by 20% each month. And Myers is crowing about going over this month by less than 10%?

Whatever, I don't care, I don't major in math.

I noted the missing article on the KR website and emailed them with a copy to post again, in case they've lost it. I reminded them that maintaining regular backups is a good policy.

Huh?

"The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Richard B. Myers, told a town-hall meeting at the Pentagon"

WTF is a "town-hall meeting at the Pentagon?"

2005-06-30T14:53:00.000+10:00

Well, if Myers said it, it has to be an outright lie. this is the Army equivalent of Bush, just a fucking liar every time he opens his stupid yap. Benedict Arnold Myers.

yeah.. this is some pretty sad goings-on, i must agree. there was a post about all this news over at PowerLine and as soon as i read it i sent John Hinderaker (the poster) a letter about how ridiculous he was being. i am also interested in getting the real numbers on the past few months as well as some historical perspective. if you're interested in my letter, see relavent post at my blog: http://galexkeene.wornpath.net

2005-06-30T14:26:00.000+10:00

I am not alone! I am not alone! Ha! Earlier when I first heard the report I thought "it stinks." Yep, they're lying. They were short, what, some 42 percent last month as I recall, but suddenly they're only about 1700 below target for the entire fiscal year (because they're 500 over target for June) and that coming after four stinkingly poor months of recruiting deficits? No way, Jose. You don't need to be a rocket scientist to puzzle that one out, or a alumus of Mensa.

2005-06-30T14:19:00.000+10:00

before they changed the numbers i remember reading that some recruiter saying it would pick up in the summer because of the reason given in the article - kids graduating. interesting that they still had to lower the number despite that...

New York Times has a chart in an article on their homepage with numbers. They don't match up with yours.

Your numbers are what I remember reading last month. How in the hell could a paper like the NYT get snookered? never mind....

2005-06-30T14:03:00.000+10:00

does anyone know if there is a record for Army recruiting goals for the past couple of years or so?
Or longer?

Seems to me there's a lot of fuzzy math/Enron Accounting going on here.
