and it's way overblown.

Some perspective here: Each year the Army recruits 80,000 new troops?which amount to 16 percent of its 500,000 active-duty soldiers. Even if 12 percent of recruits were Category IV, not just for October but for the entire coming year, they would swell the ranks of Cat IV soldiers overall by just 1.9 percent (0.12 x 0.16 = .0192).

P.S. Asking publically ...

... because maybe we have a forum glitch given Don's, the oil sands thread, and this post I know I saw posted?

Look at the date

I'm guessing the thread was deleted as a repeat and thus a TOS violation. And perhaps Dan didn't realize that and thought he had forgotten he posted it or some other glitch had occurred.

Just a theory.

The article is only a week old and refers to October and November recruiting numbers.
