A study by the Government Accountability Office found a big increase in violations by military recruiters. Not real surprising -- with longer and more frequent deployments, let alone the risk of going to Iraq or Afghanistan, the military is becoming less and less attractive an option, especially for the Army. Despite big boosts in recruiting efforts, new recruits for the military dropped from 250,000 in 2004 to 215,000 in 2005.
