According to the U.S. Department of Defense, since 9/11, more than 3.16 million Americans have entered military service. Also, men between the ages of 16 and 21 were more inclined to serve following 9/11.
The percentage increased from 15 percent in August 2001 to 23 percent in November 2001, she said. As of December 2010, that number is at 18 percent.
The rise in numbers also came with an increase in patriotic reasons for enlisting as the nation became more committed to the war on terrorism.
