Army meets recruiting goal for second straight month

The active-duty Army made its recruiting goal for the second straight month in July, according to Pentagon figures released Wednesday, but the boost still may not be enough for the service to meet its annual target by the time the fiscal year ends Sept. 30, officials said. The Army reported that it had signed up more than 8,000 recruits in July, exceeding its monthly goal by 9 percent. But the service is still 11 percent short of its annual target of 80,000 new soldiers, according to Pentagon figures.
