Slow Economy = Spike In Military Recruiting?

Last updated on Sunday, February 8, 2009

(RICHMOND) - Military recruiters are seeing more people walk into their offices as a result of the sagging economy.

An army recruiter in Richmond says his recruit numbers are up and he's seeing more older people who have been laid off inquiring about a career with the U.S. Army.

Some of the prospective recruits have no other career options available or are attracted by the educational benefits offered by the military.
