Re: Navy & Air Force Recruiting numbers surge while Army, Marines struggle
sadly, recruiters have been lying to young people for years.
Had a buddy that agreed to serve on a sub in the Navy on the condition that he could be stationed in Charleston (near his wife). Well, after his training, they put him in Charleston,SC for 6 weeks, then shipped him to San Deigo for the rest of his term (5 years, I think). Had he known that, there's no chance he would've signed up for subs.
Many similiar stories too. Those recruiters lie more than used car salesmen.
