The Army is meeting its targets, but the man who runs recruiting says finding qualified candidates in the 17 to 24 age group can be difficult.
Many of those injured in the Boston Marathon bombings one week ago remain in the hospital. Among them are J.P. and Paul Norden, brothers who each lost a leg in the attack.
The brothers were regulars at Dockside Restaurant, which has locations in Everett, Chelsea, Malden and Wakefield, Mass.
Yesterday, all four locations hosted fundraisers to raise money for the Stoneham Marathon Victims Fund.
Here & Now’s Chris Ballman attended the fundraiser in Wakefield, and reports that residents turned out to offer their support and express their concern and anger.
Note: Donations are still being accepted for the Norden brothers, and can be mailed to the Stoneham Marathon Victims Fund, c/o Stoneham Bank 80 Montvale Ave. Stoneham, MA. 02180.
