The United States military’s use of the hashtag “Army Green” to promote enlistment has become an increasingly common tool to attract more active-duty service members, according to new research.
The Army is looking to the Army Green program to recruit active- and reserve-duty troops who want to serve on active duty for two years or longer, and the service is using it to advertise a new active-service job to enlistees, according a study released Tuesday by the National Defense University.
The study, conducted by NDSU professor Richard Bensinger and published in the Journal of Army Research, found that enlistment promotion messages and recruitment posters were more popular than military service academies’ promotional materials.
The program aims to reach a group of active- duty service members that are currently in the Army Reserve, National Guard or Reserves.
It also aims to recruit service members who are not yet enrolled in the active-forces, and enlistees in the military can sign up online for the Army Corps of Engineers program, which recruits Army veterans who have completed training and are ready to enter the workforce.
The military’s current enlisted recruitment program has a long list of requirements and rewards for enlistees who complete the Army’s “green” enlistment process.
But the Army has been running the “green program” since 2015, with the goal of recruiting more people in active-soldier units who want the chance to serve.
The army program, with its green enlistment, has attracted an additional 500,000 active- service members since the beginning of 2017, according the study, which used data from the service’s recruiting system and social media platforms to find out how many people were signing up for the program.
“The Army Green is an effort to get the Army recruiting into the hands of as many people as possible, so they can enlist in our active forces,” said Michael C. Brown, director of military recruiting for the U.S. Army, in a statement to CNN.
“It is an opportunity to help enlistees find jobs in the future.”
The Army says the program is designed to help recruit new enlisted soldiers, but it also encourages veterans and their families to get involved in the program, too.
“To get enlisted members to enlist, you have to be willing to do some work to get them into the military.
If you’re a veteran, you need to take a little more time.
And if you’re not a veteran yet, you can take a couple of years and enlist,” Brown said.
The NDSUB study found that more than 6,000 service members were actively recruited via the Army program in 2016, but only a few of them had signed up to enlist in the current year.
More than half of the active enlistees said they were “interested” in enlisting in the Navy and Air Force, with about a quarter saying they were interested in enlistling in the Marines.
Nearly three quarters of the people who signed up for active duty in 2016 said they planned to enlist.
About a third of those who said they would be interested in military service in the coming year said they plan to join the military in the next five years.
The average age of enlistees is 28, and some of the most-interested soldiers are young people who want a career in the armed forces.
The survey found that, for the first time, more than 40% of enlisted service members are over the age of 25, up from 28% in 2016.
But many of those recruits have been recruited by other service branches, including the Army, which said that about 4% of active duty service people under age 25 have enlisted.
About 1% of recruits said they have already enlisted in the Air Force or Marine Corps, which is not a new trend.
In 2015, more recruits under 25 were in the Marine Corps than the Air Corps, the Air Forces or the Navy.
The researchers also found that most of the military recruits who are interested in active duty are younger than 20 years old.
About 6% of recruiters between 18 and 29 are over age 20, compared with only about 1% in 2015.
The number of active military personnel who were under age 18 increased by more than 1% between 2015 and 2016, the study found.
The researchers said they believe the increase is a result of the Army increasing the recruitment rate for young men to meet the enlistment needs of the new recruit.
