According to Le Monde, about 1,500 applications are coming in daily verses the 500 before the attacks. While the French army is the only branch to release specific numbers so far, all branches of its military are seeing increases. (Video via CNN)
A rush to enlist also happened shortly after the Charlie Hebdo attack in January but not to the same extent. In both cases, France's president Francois Hollande said he would freeze military personnel cuts.
