Getting ever more hard up

Military recruiting is not going well (when recruits know where they're headed), but still it looks pretty grim when the Army is calling up 40-something single mothers for active duty . . .
As Christmas nears, Arndt, 43, is trying to sell the Medford home she says she will not be able to keep on an Army salary of approximately $60,000 a year, and is searching for someone to care for her 13-year-old son, Shane. She expects to train for an 18-month tour of duty that could take her to Iraq or Afghanistan.
