German military launches new recruitment drive with pledge troops will not have to fight abroad

The German military has launched a drive to address troop shortages by offering new recruits a guarantee they will not be deployed abroad.

A thousand recruits a year will be able to join a new Homeland Security Force which will only be deployed inside Germany to deal with domestic security and crisis management.

Those serving with the force will not be sent on missions abroad and the military has pledged to deploy them as close to their homes in Germany as possible.

“The Homeland Security Force will give young people the opportunity to stand up for Germany and protect their homeland,” Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer, the defence minister, told a press conference to launch the new service.
