The MSM only knows how to report two stories from Iraq’ casualties and recruiting problems.


Conservative entertainment columnist Michael Medved, however, notes an aspect of the recruitment story the MSM ignores: the high level of re-enlistments.


“The Army is already far ahead of the pace needed to reach its goal of persuading 64,162 current enlisted men, from privates to top sergeants, to commit to additional service,” Medved said in online commentary.


“Among elite units bearing the brunt of combat in Iraq and Afghanistan, overwhelming numbers want to return to the fight: the 82nd Airborne, for instance, reached an astonishing 97 percent of its yearly re-enlistment goal by the end of May!”
