When the military fails to meet it's recruiting goals, it is news. When they succeed, all is quiet. Instapundit and some of the guest bloggers at Michelle Malkin are on it and giving very balanced coverage at that. Long story short, they seem to be meeting some goals but not others.
In different military news, Michael Yon is discussing the difficulties of talking about what is going on without actually breaching security. Its a toughie all right.
