US Army Now Seeking Retirees to Return to Work Amid Recruiting Crisis

The army is seeking to bring retired soldiers back to work, according to a service-wide directive published last week.

“The All Army Activities (ALARACT) document describes how Army retirees can find and apply for open positions and aims to maintain a sufficient number of personnel to fill all of the Army’s authorized positions,” reported The Daily Caller Friday. “The message comes as the service has publicly acknowledged struggles to balance a shrinking workforce with the demands of sprawling global mission sets as recruitment woes persist for a third year in a row.”

“A review of commands’ requests for [the] fill of authorized personnel vacancies, in conjunction with current Army manning guidance, prompted review of how the Army can fill key and critical position vacancies,” says a key part of the ALARACT document. “The retiree recall program can be an effective tool to fill personnel shortages of authorized regular Army vacancies that are considered key and essential.”

The document also cites Executive Order 13223 from the Bush administration in 2001.

The news has taken social media by storm:

This entire thing we are going through is contrived. There is no reason for it at all. The war in Ukrainian was deliberate.
