US Army gains recruits in aftermath of attacks

Army
recruitment offices in the United States are receiving huge levels of interest
in the wake of the terrorist attacks in New York and Washington.

The
swell in activity started in the immediate aftermath of the attacks, with an
army major in Florida describing it as a patriotic wave among Americans keen to
defend their country.

It
has been reported that one Army office in California has seen four times the
usual level of interest, with the Marine Corps recruitment service also
identifying a large increase in public interest.

Enquiries
have been from all sections of society – from teenagers to military veterans.
