Academy Application Decline

The U. S. Air Force Academy reports a nine percent decrease in applications.

That’s compared to application statistics from this time last year.

Other military schools are experiencing the same thing.

West Point officials are worried the lengthy deployment and hard combat in Iraq is hurting recruitment.

Other officials say the Iraq war isn’t the only cause for the decline.
