* The Navy hit 100 percent of its goal of 2,909 accessions with 2,909.
* The Marine Corps hit 137 percent of its goal of 1,632 accessions with 2,234.

If the war was as unpopular as the traditional media in this country would have you believe, would a total of 26,136 people sign up to go fight the terrorist (this is just one month)? Seriously people...

Amen brother, thank you for your service! I'm sick and tired of all the hippy dippy biased crap on the news (which is why I refuse to watch 90% of it.)

Where else are they going to work? Have you seen the price of college/health care lately? Oh, no you haven't because your college/health care is paid for.

Unemployment's way up. Kids can't find work, so they join up. It's always the way.

When I joined up, I was homeless, broke and alcoholic. It was like coming home.
