Description

WGTV reports on problems with military recruitment. The investigation found that recruiters, with significant pressure from higher up, were over looking things that might disqualify people from joining, like medical problems and criminal histories. They found a convicted felon serving in a high ranking position she should have been disqualified from and found that roles contained people who had not show up for over a year.
