The All-Volunteer Force (AVF) of the US Army is slowly dying.
In the fifty years following the closure of recruitment and the AVF created a highly skilled force.
In every conflict the more skilled, well motivated, and more professional U.S. Army was the dominant force on the battlefield.
Armed Services are having difficulty meeting their goals for recruitment as never before.
The Army is one most affected as there is the estimated loss of 15,000 soldiers.
It is anticipated that there will be significant losses next year. Experts have identified a variety of motives.
