The article reports that despite ongoing conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan that continue to produce casualties among United States' military personnel, Marine Corps recruiters have just reached their enlisted recruitment targets for the 23rd year in a row. Getting more than 40,000 of United States' young men and women to volunteer each year to serve in arguably the toughest branch of the armed forces is no easy task. Yet, year after year, Marine recruiters have done just that. In contrast, the Army fell far short of its recruiting goals for 2005, and has missed the mark several times in the past decade.
