The sun rises over B-1B Lancer maintainers and aircrew Feb. 20 at Eglin Air Force
Base. The 53rd Wing bomber from Dyess AFB, Texas was here for a few missions and
to allow wing personnel an opportunity to see one of their geographically separated
aircraft up close.
Eglin community members
gathered at the Black History
Month luncheon at the Bayview
Club Jan. 25 to celebrate this year’s
theme, “A Century of Black Life,
History and Culture.”
The occasion focused on the
invaluable accomplishments and
contributions military and civilian
African-Americans have made in
building and shaping America’s
history.
Lt. Col. Michael Patrick, 73rd
Ordnance Battalion commander
from Redstone Arsenal, Ala., was
the luncheon’s guest speaker.
“The fact is, African-American
history is not just an African-American story,” Patrick said. “It is rather
an American story, which incorporates both Africa and America.”
Patrick said African-Americans,
“
The fact is, African-American history is not just
an African-American story. It is rather an American
story, which incorporates both Africa and America.”
whose collective story contains
chapters of “twists and turns; ups
and downs; trials and tribulations;
labor and pain; cruel and inhumane acts; and segregation and
desegregation,” have contributed
immensely to the betterment of
America and abroad.
Patrick recognized AfricanAmerican patriots whose service
spanned the Revolutionary War,
the Civil War, World Wars I and
II, through the wars in Iraq and
Afghanistan.
He named Crispus Attucks, an
African-American sailor, who was
the first man killed in the Boston
- Lt. Col. Michael Patrick
Massacre and 2nd Lt. Henry O.
Flipper, the first African-American
West Point graduate, as predecessors to Gen. Benjamin O. Davis Sr.,
commander of the Tuskegee Airmen’s 99th Pursuit Squadron; Lt.
Gen. Daniel “Chappie” James, the
military’s first African-American
four-star general and Gen. Vincent
Brooks, the current U.S. Army Pacific commanding general and the
first African-American to serve as
cadet first captain, the highest rank
an Army cadet can hold.
Patrick cited for their dedication to the betterment of America:
Frederick Douglass, Harriet Tub-
man, Martin Luther King Jr., Rosa
Parks and W.E.B. Dubois, Jackie
Robinson and President Barack
Obama.
“The reality is that without the
sacrifices of many, none of us in
this room would be where we are
today,” Patrick said. “Each African-American pioneer cleared a
portion of the path for thousands
of others who would follow through
their willingness to fight for what’s
right.”
He closed his speech by charging each service member in attendance “to continue being the
shining example of justice, equality
and judges of character, not color,
for leaders and subordinates in our
ranks.”
“I wholeheartedly believe that
we are leading change and making the difference by our example
and the example we set in our
ranks, files and formations,” he
concluded.

The Marine Corps,
smallest of Department
of Defense services, had
the same number of active duty members in
2013 (196,000) as it did 40
years earlier. Yet over that
period, Army active duty
strength fell 63 percent, to
528,000; Navy strength fell
54 percent, to 320,000; and
Air Force dropped by 46
percent, to under 327,000.
The all-volunteer force
is far more senior than
during the draft-era when
skills were less technical
and services needed fewer
careerists. The services
were flush with quality
recruits from 2011 through
2013 due not only to a poor
economy but a post-war
drawdown that allowed the
Army and Marine Corps,
in particular, to be more
selective than in the past.
Recruits are deemed
high quality if they have
at least a high school diploma and entrance exam
scores that are at or above
the 50th percentile of test
scores nationwide. In 2013,
the proportion of highquality recruits was 96
percent for Air Force and
Coast Guard, 82 percent
for Navy, 72 percent for
Marine Corps and 61 per-
cent for Army.
Recruiters worry that
every year a smaller
slice of the nation’s youth
qualify for service. In 2013,
only 13 percent were both
available (not in college)
and could meet recruiting standards without a
waiver. An estimated 22
percent of youth would
be disqualified for medical issues, 21 percent are
overweight, 14 percent
have mental issues and 8
percent used illegal drugs.
To assess how recruits
track on a socioeconomic
scale, the report uses
census data to divide the
nation into five strata of
affluence, from poorest to
wealthiest areas. It found
most recruits hail from the
three middle-income quintiles and under represent
poorest and wealthiest
neighborhoods.
Fewer recruits from
lowest income areas
“are likely explained”
by military educational
and aptitude test scores
requirements, the report
explains. Lower representation from highest
income neighborhoods “is
probably due to higher college attendance rates…in

The military continues
to recruit most heavily
from southern states while
youth of northeastern
states are underrepresented based on the
relative size of their recruit-age populations (18
to 24).
Georgia and then
Florida topped an “accession share” list, providing
47 and 44 percent more
recruits, respectively,
above their youth populations. Other states sending
at least 25 percent more

Ten states that provide
fewer recruits than expected given their youth
numbers are: North Dakota, Massachusetts, Utah,
New Jersey, Rhode Island,
Connecticut, New York,
South Dakota, Kentucky
and Iowa. The District of
Columbia provides the
smallest proportion recruits in the nation.
The disparities reflect
several factors including
local qualification rates for
military service, propensity to enlist and the level
of recruiting resources the
services commit to each
state.

Coast Guard, met recruiting goals, taking “high percentages of high-quality
recruits” and significantly
exceeding their own goals,
CNA officials noted in releasing the report.
“We cannot expect
such good news in the
future,” it warns, because
recruiting success “is
closely tied to the state of
the economy. In 2013 the
unemployment rate was
7.4 percent (15.5 percent
among those 16 to 24 years
old) and it was difficult to
find employment.”
The jobless rate now is
5.8 percent, lowest in six
years.
“As the economy continues to expand we can
expect recruiting to get
tougher and tougher,”
CNA warns.
As of Sept. 30, 2013, active duty strength stood at
1.37 million, down 41,000
over the previous two
years. That was 600,000
fewer enlisted than were
on active duty in 1973
when the draft ended.

age youth.
Asians are the fastest
growing ethnic group in
the U.S. but their recruit
numbers lag. They were
5.4 percent of recruit-age
youth in 2013 but 3.8 percent of non-prior service
accessions.
Congress has required
an annual report on the
composition of the armed
forces since 1974, the
year after conscription
ended. This year’s report,
prepared for the Department of Defense by CNA
Corp., analyzes fresh data
compiled by the Defense
Manpower and Data Center through fiscal 2013. It
explains how the mix of
volunteers has changed
over time and why recruit
quality, recently at an alltime high, likely won’t stay
there.
The full report is online
at: http://www.cna.org/poprep with a lot more detail
on both active and reserve
components.
In 2013 all service
branches, including the
2118921
“black
service
members
are underrepresented among
junior
enlisted
pay grades
(relative to
whites) but
overrepresented in the senior pay
grades. This is particularly
true for the top enlisted
leadership positions (E8
and E9). It reflects both
strong black accession
percentages in the 1990s
and black service members’ high continuation
rates and competitiveness
in the promotion process.”
The number of Hispanics in uniform is climbing,
though not at a pace to
match Hispanic population growth nationwide. In
1978, the report notes, Hispanics were 6.1 percent of
accessions; by 2013 they
were 15.5 percent, still
short of 21.1 percent Hispanics among all recruit2111058
A new “Population Representation” report on the
U.S. military affirms that
the four-decade-old volunteer force is a healthy
cross-section of America,
if just a little smarter, a
little better educated and
with a deeper southern
drawl than the nation as a
whole.
The percentage of female enlisted members
has declined slightly over
the past decade, to 14.5
percent, reflecting lower
wartime retention rates,
while the percentage of female officers continued to
climb past 17 percent.
The racial, ethnic and
socioeconomic mix is not
too different from America
itself. Among recent recruits, blacks are slightly
over-represented, at 18.7
percent versus 15.5 percent of recruit-age youth.
But the report notes important gains for blacks
across the career enlisted
force.
“Contrary to what one
might expect,” it says,
