Abstract
Only about 28 percent of the 177,023 enlisted losses to the Active Army in FY 1993 either transferred to the Reserve Components (RC) or had completed all of their obligated service and were eligible for reserve service (RE). Of these 48,000 RC and RE losses, 41,000 were in paygrades E4 and E5, the target pool for USAR Troop Program Unit (TPU) prior service recruiting. Only 28 percent of RC and RE E4--E5s had an occupation considered a priority for TPU readiness. A typical Active Army loss to the RC was a single white male E4 from the South census region with almost four years of service. He was a high school graduate in mental group category I-IIIA and had initially entered the Army for a four year term. A typical RE loss was a white male E5 with nine years of service. He was older and more likely to be married with dependents, but was similar in other respects to his RC counterpart. Neither was in a reserve priority occupation. Women made up less than 20 percent of both groups. Blacks were more strongly represented and Hispanics less strongly represented among RC and RE losses than among the comparable civilian population.
