U.S. Marine Corps Maj. Gen. Robert Milstead, commanding general of the U.S. Marine Corps Recruiting Command said that the Marine Corps has not been negatively affected by the struggling economy. Milstead spoke with online journalists and bloggers during a DoDLive Bloggers Roundtable, April 1. “I would tell you, for the enlisted, that it has not made a difference,” Milstead told online journalists and bloggers during a DoDLive Bloggers Roundtable March 31. “It’s increased the number of young men and women walking in the doors,” he said.
