Rocky Mountain News: America At War: “Since Fort Carson units began coming home in April, post recruiters have met only 57 percent of their quota for re-enlisting first-term soldiers for a second hitch, according to an Army report.

More disturbing, recruiters say, is they’re re-enlisting only 46 percent of the quota for ‘mid-career’ noncommissioned officers. These are the young sergeants with four to 10 years of experience who are the backbone of the Army – its skilled soldiers, mentors and future senior NCOs. “
