MILITARY -- ARMY VOWS TO REVERSE RECRUITING SLUMP: This year, the Army fell 6,600 recruits short of its 80,000 goal, and it was the first time it had failed to hit a recruiting goal since 1999. In response, "[t]he Army has a master plan for recovering from this year's painful recruiting problems that includes new financial incentives for enlistees, greater use of computers, a new way for recruiters to make their pitch and a proposed finder's fee for soldiers who refer recruits." The Massachusetts Army National Guard is taking a more novel approach by recruiting soldiers at the mall. New England Patriots cheerleaders will kick off the grand opening of their new recruiting office in the Natick Mall, the Boston Herald reports.
