Here’s yet another sign that American morale remains strong:
The number of applicants to the Air Force Academy has grown sharply from last fall, despite the school’s sexual assault scandal.
As of Nov. 12, the number of applicants was 10,555 – 1,616 more than the 8,939 from a year ago at the same time, the academy said Tuesday.
Of course, this is a Guardian story, so they mention the ongoing sex scandal, but neglect to mention there’s a war on. If anything were to cause decreased enrollments, wouldn’t that be it?
