Even the Army has put out help wanted signs

ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - McDonald's is offering free iPhones to new employees in hopes of getting more people applying for open positions. But they're not the only ones struggles to attract recruits.

Army National Hiring Days continues, and Brigadier General Niave Knell joined St. Louis Talks to discuss the opportunities that exist in the military today.

Knell said that with 150 possible career fields, we can expect, “Everything from cyber to infantry. You can go from very high tech to what the origins of what the Army are, depending on what interests you.”

Last summer, a change-of-commandant ceremony took place at the John B. Mahaffey Museum Complex in Fort Leonard Wood, making Kneel the 51st commandant and chief of the MP Corps.  She previously served at Fort Leonard Wood as the 14th Military Police Brigade commander.

“The Army will offer you some great opportunities if you would like to join us and serve with us, ” said Knell. As to her recruitment story, she’s a first generation American that appreciated the opportunity given in the United States. “It would be nice to do a little bit of service to pay back our adoptive country. My country but my parents adopted country.”

Recruiting days continue until June 14th.
