Should the army lower its requirements to meet recruiting goals?

Mark Martinez,

"No. I don't think they should. I think there should be a standard there and they might get inferior people."

Jess Denny,

guitar maker,

Denver

"No, because that would be lowering our standards."

Ian Hamilton,

KU student,

Lawrence

"You don't want ignorants in the army but how smart do you have to be to pull a trigger? ... If you need someone to run (sophisticated) military equipment, you don't want Barney Fife out there."

Mike Hennecke,

pastry chef,

Lawrence

"No. I think the army should represent a high standard."
