Installation Retention Office

Our Mission:

Fort Gordon Retention Office's mission is to ensure that only those soldiers who have demonstrated potential for future development, and have maintained a record of acceptable performance, will be offered the privilege of continued service.



Our Goals:

a. Obtain maximum command involvement in the retention program.
b. Reenlist, on a long-term basis, sufficient numbers of highly qualified Active Army Soldiers.
c. Enlist, or transfer and assign sufficient numbers of highly qualified Soldiers who are separating from the Active Army into RC units, consistent with geographic constraints.
d. Achieve and maintain Army force alignment through the retention, transfer, or enlistment of highly qualified Soldiers in critical skills and locations.
e. Adequately support special programs such as the U.S. Military Academy Preparatory School (USMAPS) and ROTC "Green to Gold" programs.

Our Responsibility:

The Army Retention Program is the direct responsibility of all COMMANDERS. The Career Counselor will counsel soldiers, evaluate the units, advise the commanders, train the leaders and manage the retention program. The success of the program depends upon effective leadership, vigorous command involvement and aggressive retention activities at all organizational levels.
Success is measured by the percentage of accomplishment for all categories (Initial Term, Mid Career, Careerist, Fiscal Year ETS, Special Missions, and Reserve Component). Accomplishment of these objectives relates directly to the quality of leadership exhibited by the officers of the units. Success should be further measured by the achievement of the Commander's objectives with the fewest possible waivers, exceptions to policy and movement type options while improving the readiness, competency and skill alignment of the force.
