Army Proves You Don't Have To Earn It, You Just Have To Be A Minority
Army officials say they want more minority officers in the service. Among 26 brigades, only one colonel is African American, and the Army has only three African American generals with a four-star rank. USA Today reports the Army plans to recruit officers from major metropolitan areas. Brigadier General Peggy Combs, who leads the Army Cadet Command, said the Army will expand recruiting efforts in New York City, Los Angeles, Miami, Chicago, Dallas and Phoenix. The service is also mentoring youth minority officers to put them on the path toward higher ranks in the Army.
