Legionnaires hear of all-volunteer Army
At their December meeting, the members of Bay Village American Legion Post #385 heard an address by Lieutenant Colonel Scott Bartley, Battalion Commander of the US Army Recruiting in Cleveland.
LTC Bartley, pictured with Bay Village Legion Commander Stan Zeager, spoke of the new limits for volunteers wishing to join the all-volunteer Army. These limits include weight limits, past legal problems, tattoos, and an ability to pass a minimum intelligence test. All branches of the military are imposing standards for new recruits. Quotas for entry level service personnel are being met in spite of the new requirements.
