Military Recruitment Increases Among Korean Americans

Korea Daily, news report, Posted: Nov 24, 2008



LOS ANGELES - More and more Korean Americans are considering a military career, reported Korea Daily. According to the newspaper, Korean Americans who are worried about their job security are convinced that joining the Army is the best way to survive an economic downturn. Signing-up bonuses, the benefits the Army offers and more positive news out of Iraq are also enticing Korean Americans to the military. A Korean-American Army recruiter from Los Angeles' Central Recruiting station told the newspaper that his office gets 20 to 30 inquiry calls, and five to six people actually join the military every month. Defying the notion that the Army is only for young people, more women in their 30's are signing up. Last year the same station had received one or two inquiry calls in a month and had a difficult time to signing them up.
