In order to continue prosecuting Overseas Contingency Operations, and to secure opportunities for diplomacy and statecraft into the future, leaders of our Nation will continue to rely heavily on the United States Armed Forces. Since 1973, an all-volunteer force has comprised the formations of the United States Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, and Coast Guard. Non-Commissioned Officers have recruited this all-volunteer force, by providing information and presenting opportunities to young Americans considering their future. Hundreds of organizations throughout our Country have a negative influence on our recruiting efforts, using techniques and strategies that frequently depict professional military recruiters in an ill light, disillusion influencers and dissuade potential applicants from looking into military service as a viable option. More often than not, our strategy has been to disengage at the tactical level and re-focus efforts where the success is more likely.
