After Pearl Harbor was attacked 60 years ago, American men enlisted in the armed services in droves. After yesterday’s attacks, recruitment in Iowa has nearly doubled. The Army’s recruitment battalion commander in Iowa, Lieutenant Colonel Steve Graham, says there are three to five walk-ins or phone-ins on a regular day at each recruitment office in Iowa. Before noon today, he says there’d already been six to ten new recruits at each.Colonel Graham says the increased show of support highlights the quality and dedication of Iowans for wanting to serve the nation in the armed forces. He says it’s refreshing to see this show of allegiance.Graham says no one is coerced into signing up. He says all enlistees are first given all the facts about their obligations and opportunities.
