There certainly are recruiting difficulties throughout the military, but rather than comment on it with the usual smilies, perhaps you might consider enlisting and helping to solve the problem.
In today's Army, there is a job for anyone willing to work hard.
I think I might have the perfect job for you, although I'm not sure you're fully qualified.
Do you require oats, or is pasture grass enough? Are you between 14 and 16 hands high? Do you have good occlusion?
And how much weight do you think you can carry? :evilgrin:
