The Military Is Going Millennial

Between new recruitment initiatives aimed at bringing in technically skilled workers and the repeal of unpopular policies, like the Army’s tattoo restrictions, the military is making itself more millennial friendly.

Military leaders need to open their eyes to the fact that their recruitment base may not be interested in military service as it stands today, and if they want to draw the talented and skilled personnel they need, then the military needs to get with the times. That means more relaxed policies on things like tattoos, and career opportunities comparable to the private sector.
