Gen. Carter Ham (USA Ret.), President & CEO of the Association of the United States Army, discusses Army recruitment goals and AUSA’s upcoming annual meeting.

The Army says that they met their recruitment goal for the fiscal year, despite various challenges. Competition from the private sector and the other military services kept recruiters on their toes, but they’re looking to keep the momentum going for another year. Gen. Carter Ham (USA Ret.), President & CEO of the Association of the United States Army, says that aiming for modest growth is an important and attainable goal.

 

“What the Army has chosen to do is recommend to the president and Congress modest growth in what’s called the Army’s end strength in order to recruit the right numbers, but maintaining quality,” Ham told Government Matters. “Quality is more important and we have seen the army invest in the recruiting force, emphasizing quality in different markets, if you will, cities across the nation.”
