The British Army has started a campaign to try and recruit more of the millennial "snowflakes" everyone is always complaining about because studies have shown they actually make excellent soldiers with a more modern, more relevant skillset in today's ever changing world. The article explains how they are having problems filling some of their personnel quotas.

"The Commons defence committee was told in October that the army had 77,000 fully trained troops compared with a target of 82,500.

Forty-seven per cent of applicants dropped out of the process voluntarily in 2017-18, and both the army and Capita believe the length of the process is a significant factor in this, according to the report."

Can't hurt given the low numbers currently joining the Army. I think pretty much every country in the West is having this issue.
