Army Plans to Recruit 80,000 in 2018

The Army is looking at another end strength increase in 2018, and, this time, the focus will be on recruiting new soldiers, the service’s top enlisted leader said Monday.

Following a 26,000-person increase in 2017, the Army has asked for another 17,000 for the total force this coming year. The plan is to focus most of the effort on recruiting, Sergeant Major of the Army Dan Dailey told Army Times during a senior enlisted leader panel at the Pentagon.
