Expected Army retention rate down

by on April 16th, 2004


The retention rate of 96 percent was lower than last year’s 106percent, when more solders stayed than the Army had planned, the report said.

Full-time soldiers and members of the Guard and Reserve could choose to leave instead of stay this year because of the strains of service, including longer and more frequent overseas missions, military personnel experts warned.
