The United States Air Force is currently struggling to obtain new airmen for its ranks and will likely miss its active-duty, reserve, and Air National Guard recruitment plans in 2023, Air Force secretary Frank Kendall said this week.

“We are swimming upstream against the reduced propensity to serve nationally across the board and a limited percentage of qualified candidates.”

According to Michael Rubin, senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute (A.E.I.) and former Pentagon official, the Air Force “isn’t alone in this problem.”

“Across the U.S. military, missed goals are becoming the rule rather than the exception. It is not just about tattoos or physical fitness. It really suggests a broader cultural shift across society,” Rubin said.
