During the last school year, I hired 713 high school and 60 college graduates. These 773 young men and women committed to work for their country for three, and some for up to six years. They are part of a very small percentage of young Americans who qualify to be part of the Army team.

Only the occasional police siren, the roar of jet fighters, and whirling helicopter blades punctured the silence.
