New Recruits Join The Bundeswehr

New recruit Alina Engel (C) gets help adjusting her Bundeswehr-issued beret from fellow-recruit Alina Claus (R) on the day the two received their uniforms, helmet, boots and other basic equipment at the Julius-Leber Barracks on October 6, 2014 in Berlin, Germany. 

Hundreds of new recruits arrived at barracks across Germany on October 1 in the quarterly recruitment drive by the Bundeswehr, the German armed forces. Germany did away with conscription in 2011 and current Defense Minister Ursula von der Leyen recently launched an initiative to make the Bundeswehr a more attractive employer, especially for families and women.
