American Forces Press Service

WASHINGTON, Aug. 23, 2012 – All four active services and five of the six reserve components met or exceeded their numerical accession goals for fiscal 2012 through July, Pentagon officials reported.

The only shortfall -- the Army Reserve -- was intentional as part of force balancing, officials said.

Here are the numbers:

-- Army: 47,817 accessions, 101 percent of its goal of 47,300;

-- Navy: 28,507 accessions, 100 percent of its goal of 28,483;

-- Marine Corps: 21,462 accessions, 100 percent of its goal of 21,416;

-- Air Force: 23,988 accessions, 100 percent of its goal of 23,974;

-- Army National Guard: 40,127 accessions, 103 percent of its goal of 38,940;

-- Army Reserve: 21,725 accessions, 98 percent of its goal of 22,194;

-- Navy Reserve: 6,652 accessions, 100 percent of its goal of 6,652;

-- Marine Corps Reserve: 7,925 accessions, 104 percent of its goal of 7,652;

-- Air National Guard: 7,333 accessions, 100 percent of its goal of 7,319; and

-- Air Force Reserve: 7,121 accessions, 100 percent of its goal of 7,121.

The Army, Navy, Marine Corps, and Air Force all exhibited strong retention through the tenth month of fiscal 2012, officials said, and all reserve components are on target to achieve their fiscal year attrition goals.
