Perhaps to look better in the eyes of potential recruits.

Apparently the Army needed recruiters so the Army sent out orders on short notice to get new NCOs into the pipeline, with short to no notice. Nice way to treat soldiers.
It's also now okay to change the recruitment narrative from being one of woke racial inclusivity and the recruitment of alphabet people to one of there might be a war and we now need non inclusive potential cannon fodder in relation to straight white people again.

I wonder if inclusivity and the woke narrative still applies to opportunities for promotion or is that going to be unchanged in the name of the woke agenda, along with actual front line service in relation to certain protected inclusive groups. etc.

Maybe the military (or Army) has reached the desired capacity of DEI service members and now the pendulum is swinging back (no pun intended).

It could happen that a review of personnel records showed that the promotions for a certain rank were 80% minority females. Then what? Then turn the spigot off or reshape the commercials?

When I was in, my particular branch considered recruiting duty to be a special assignment and only accepted volunteers. Same applied to people conducting new employee orientation.

Yep. Practically the only way to get promoted. Drill Instructor or Recruiter. (USMC)

I think SOP in the guard is 6mo advance notification. Everyone got their orders. I was told I was needed at the home base. 5 months later I got called in and handed orders to Kuwait, leaving in less than a month. Gomen, nay? Pack my stuff, make arrangements for 4 horses, several dogs and a teenager.

So they turn the woke advertising on and off.

I guess they much have reached the quota of lesbians and trans individuals now there's a possible war have switched to advertising for traditional recruits who will be on the front line unlike some of the woke diversity hires.

Possibly. You must have started reading Douglas Murray’s books.

When you sign on the line, you become Gov't Property. They can do with you, whatever they want to do to you. If you are needed elsewhere, you're going. If you need killin', you're dead. Simple as that.

Besides, being a recruiter would be a great gig. It beats getting shot at....

Beats getting shot at, but who volunteers for the service looking for a career as a salesman? Especially when your product is to send you somewhere to get shot at.

I haven't read Murray's books, I am merely stating my own opinion based on what I have witnessed, however there are social commentators who have highlighted the same type of issues.
